It is my belief that massage therapy is no longer a luxury, as it was perceived to be years ago. Rising costs of healthcare and the multiple side effects of medicines are bringing people back to a more alternative form of health and healing. Therapeutic massage and bodywork are becoming more of a necessity in managing stress, physical injuries, and also detoxification.
Physically, the goal is to improve circulation, increase flexibility, decrease inflammation or edema and ultimately reduce pain. We want to activate the parasympathetic nervous system so that the body can return to homeostasis or it's natural balance. Emotional balance is important as well and massage is an excellent avenue for self care. It allows the body, mind, and spirit a chance to rest and renew.
I look forward to working with you as you deepen your journey toward wellness.
