Why Massage Therapy?

Our bodies naturally restore fascia, muscles, and functioning systems toward balance and health until we experience trauma or stress that blocks this process. Causes of trauma or stress can be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual, usually with a combination of all four of these areas. Physical trauma is frequently caused by motor vehicle accidents. Injuries range from whiplash to broken bones, minor scratches to life threatening and life changing conditions. Massage techniques speed healing and create an environment for energy to flow.

With emotional/mental stress the body tends to hold the tension in certain areas such as the shoulders or the back. This creates congestion or lack of circulation which can cause pain and lead to loss of normal function.The top four emotional/mental stressors in today’s society are: moving to a new city or location; an ending to a relationship; loss of a loved one; loss of a job. Most of us experience many traumas and stress in our lives.

Massage is proven to help speed healing, reduce pain, improve function, and allow you to relax  and let go of the stress you carry on a daily basis. Massage also helps strengthen your immune system, stimulate and improve respiration, circulation and digestion, relieve constipation, and relieve insomnia or sleep problems.

Reflexology

Are you looking for a full body tune-up? Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all of the glands, organs and parts of the body. This modality is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas to provide balance to all of the systems of the body. Experience the relaxation, balance, and improved nerve and blood supply that is created by this ancient art.
