MUSCULAR DISCOMFORT AND MASSAGE

Physical pain, whether it's acute in nature or dull and chronic, can be exhausting emotionally and draining physically. Massage can be a great tool for addressing physical pain. Physical manipulation of our soft tissues increases blood circulation to the area. This brings in much needed oxygen and valuable nutrients. In turn, this also increases the release of metabolic by products. Kneading and pushing also breaks up muscular tension which allows our bodies to move more freely. Receiving a full body massage can have a profound effect on blood and lymph circulation so it is important that you are properly hydrated before and after your session.


MASSAGE FOR HEALTH AND WELL BEING

You don't have to be in pain to get a massage. In fact you're less likely to develop issues when massage is apart of your health regime. Massage allows us to relax and tap into our parasympathetic nervous system, the rest and digest system. While lymph and blood are manually flushed your nervous system is resetting itself, stimulating digestion and immune function. Massage also allows people to be nurtured with touch which is not as present in western culture. Energy balancing brings a peace of mind and a sense of balance.


MASSAGE AND THE EMOTIONAL SELF

In some cases it is our emotional state that is behind our physical discomfort. Emotional stress pulls your shoulders to your ears and ensues a heavy grind to your teeth as you sleep. Massage can help bring you back into your body and out of the stress patterns we create for ourselves. If there is a deeper issue that needs addressing, ask your therapist about Craniosacral Therapy. Craniosacral Therapy has been used to compliment treatments for depression, autism, ADHD/ADD and bipolar disorder. Bach Flower Essence Therapy is also available to our clients who resonate with homeopathy.
