Each Massage is a customized combination of massage techniques, energy work and stretching to address your individual needs. Massage therapy is a treatment used to maximize your chiropractic care, pain management, stress relief, and overall health.
The next time you think about popping that pain pill, make an appointment with your massage therapist instead. Soreness and stiffness result when overworked muscles produce waste products like lactic acid, and massage can help by improving the circulation to the muscles to flush these out. Tense muscles can also compress blood vessels and nerves. Massage leads to a gradual release that eases the pain. Just be sure to let your massage therapist know if your pain is caused by stress, an injury, or surgery.
IMPROVED LYMPH MOVEMENT
Lymph is the milky-white fluid that drains waste from the cells. The pumping effect of muscle contraction moves lymph through the body, and massage (as well as exercise) can facilitate the process. The pressure of massage also increases blood flow that can help reduce swelling after surgery.
The manual pressure of massage increases blood flow to the treated areas. The increased blood flow brings more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles to help repair and revitalize the body.
Massage helps the skin by stimulating the sebaceious and sweat glands. Increased blood flow also has a positive effect on the skin by supplying the cells with nutrients and oxygen. More blood at the skin's surface also leads to a rosy, healthy glow.
Massage has been shown to increase the body's production of "feel-good" endorphins and the mood-regulating hormone serotonin and decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
BALANCE THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
Stress revs up the nervous system, leading to restlessness, hyperactivity, anxiety, muscle tension, cardiovascular stress and even abdominal problems. Massage helps reduce stress and the body's reaction to it, bringing your nervous system back into harmony.
MORE PERFECT POSTURE
Muscles that are too tight or too slack can throw off your posture. To compensate, your body will utilize other muscles, which can eventually become accepted by your body and lead to permanent imbalance and chronic muscle pain.
Different techniques and levels of strength are available for each individual. We are also able to just focus on specific area's such as feet, cranial, sacral, shoulders, sciatic release.
Our Goal is to provide you a comfortable, relaxing environment that will allow you to refresh and rejuvenate naturally.
