Whether from from muscle tension, pathological conditions or from injuries, massage continues to be invaluable for people who suffer from acute or chronic pain conditions.
DECREASE STRESS & TENSION
Massage is well known in treating things like the all too common tension headache as well as offering respite from the stressful situations, emotions and events that life can bring.
Increases and improves circulation of blood and lymph thereby promoting tissue healing and improving muscle tone. Massage is also of great benefit in situations involving paralysis, immobility and sedentery issues.
Enhances mood and the sense of well-being. Studies have shown that massage increases the release of endorphins resulting in elevated mood and a feeling of warmth.
Improves range of motion in joints and breaks down scar tissue formed after injury or surgery.
Rejuvenating for both mind and body. Nurturing for the senses and nervous system, massage can improve sleep and bring new life to a body feeling run down and overwhelmed.
When the mind and body are in harmony we can learn to ‘surf the inevitable waves of life’ and overall be happier, safer and more peaceful.
Regular massage can increase the body’s natural defense systems.
What kind of massage do I do?
I draw from a range of modalities including traditional hawaiian lomilomi, Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy, Ayurvedic (abhyanga and marma), Integrative, Polarity Therapy, Energy Medicine, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, guided visualization and breathwork and is tailored to whatever you may need on any given day. Sessions range from 30 min.-120 min. and the length of your massage is the minimum time spent on the table and does not include consultation and transition time. Medicated or plain oil is typically used for specific healing benefit but lotions are also available if you prefer. Your session may also include aromatherapy, hydrotherapy, hot towels and other additions to enhance your treatment.
