BRING BALANCE BACK TO YOUR BODY WITH MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage is considered to be among the oldest of
all treatments used by man. Chinese records dating back three thousand years documented its use. The ancient Hindus, Persians, and Egyptians used forms of massage for some ailments, and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:

Decreased anxiety.
Enhanced sleep quality.
Greater energy.
Improved concentration.
Increased circulation.
Reduced fatigue.

Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:

Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
Ease medication dependence.
Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
Increase joint flexibility.
Lessen depression and anxiety.
Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
Reduce spasms and cramping.
Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
Relieve migraine pain.

SWEDISH MASSAGE The most common form of massage. Swedish massage relaxes the muscles, relieves aches and pains, and will hasten healing of injuries, reduce swelling, and help dissolve scar tissue adhesions.

DEEP TISSUE
Deep Tissue modalities are often integrated with other massage methods. Once the outer muscles have been relaxed, the work goes deeper into the fascia, the deep, dense, connective tissue that helps join your body parts together. Deep tissue work is an excellent remedy for chronic muscular pain, injury rehabilitation, and reduction of inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis.

PREGNANCY MASSAGE

Mothers-to-be can greatly benefit from pregnancy massage. It can help a mother’s changing posture and possibly the positioning of the baby in the womb. The beneficial relaxation chemicals a mother’s body releases when getting a massage also flow to the baby. And once the baby is born, massage can help bring mother’s strained body structure and physiology back into alignment.

CranioSacral

A gentle treatment approach that works with the natural, self correcting mechanism of the body and the craniosacral system (the membranes and fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord) to detect and release restrictions in mobility and enhancement function. The rhythmic movement of the craniosacral system can be palpated and used to determine the core issues so that treatment can focus on the cause rather than the symptom.

GERIATRIC MASSAGE

A gentle approach tailored to meet the individual needs and comfort levels of seniors. Geriatric massage can be done with clothes on and may only address certain parts of the body. Massage for seniors addresses the need for loving touch, an element that may be lacking in their lives.

REIKI

A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki raises the energetic vibration and breaks up the negativity to heal, clear and restore the natural flow of the life force. Also, used to accelerate healing, assist the body in cleansing toxins, and balance the flow of subtle energy by releasing blockages and help the client contact the healer within. The practitioner’s hands move progressively with a passive touch through twelve positions on the body, remaining in each position for three to five minutes. As a harmonic flow of energy is strengthened, within the client and practitioner, healing occurs through the return of physical, mental, and spiritual balance .Recipients of energy work often report dramatic reorientations in how they feel and move in the world.
