There are many good reasons to seek massage therapy. Medical providers often recommend massage as a way to assist healing. We are living in a fast paced world with multiple demands. How do we navigate work, kids, social commitments and many other details which swiftly fill our days without experiencing stress and anxiety? Maybe you are training for an athletic event and you are struggling with overuse strains and alignment issues. Some of us struggle with diabetic pain, arthritis or other debilitating and chronic conditions. Regular therapeutic massage can help reduce symptoms of depression, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, respiratory conditions, digestive disorders and more. Along with proper medical care, therapeutic massage is very healing for the mind, body, and spirit.
Depending on your unique needs, I will use a variety of massage techniques to manipulate muscle and connective tissue which may include heat, facilitated stretching, acupressure or trigger point therapy. To balance energy systems in the body, I often incorporate Reiki as a regular part of my practice.
Coupling massage with heat and facilitated stretching enhances neurotransmission between the brain and the affected soft tissue. Applying heat during massage increases circulation thereby reducing inflammation. The usage of heat is comforting for most people. Trigger point therapy and acupressure untangles adhesions and helps to strengthen affected areas of the body. When combining these therapies, clients experience a heightened sense of well-being, reduced pain, increased mobility and improved structural alignment. The addition of CBD oils and salves from AeroMed and Vermont Lavender further reduce inflammation and pain.
Stress reducing style massages are great for those who want to unwind and release tensions from a heavy workload or stressful event, illness or life situation. Those who need to release muscular knots or adhesions that cause pain and discomfort can opt for a sport or deep tissue massage with varying levels of pressure. Massage combined with heat and facilitated stretching will greatly increase circulation and structural alignment, reduce pain, and accelerate recovery from injury and illness.
