WHAT IS MASSAGE?
Massage is...........One of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate and tone the body. Massage does more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it also works on the soft tissues (muscle, connective, tendon and ligament) to improve muscle tone.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Massage helps to break up adhesions or separate tissues that are stuck together. It also helps lengthen or broaden muscle fiber that has become shortened due to repetitive use or chronic stress. It helps bring about an increased level of comfort and relaxation for cases of hypertension or stress & anxiety. It helps bring a client to a level of relaxation and awareness in their body that is void of unnecessary drugs and virtually unrivaled by any other modality used by western medicine.
Even one massage session can raise your seratonin level (the "feel good" hormone) and lower cortisol, a hormone directly related to stress in the body.
TYPES OF MASSAGE
Deep Swedish - Basic Swedish with a deeper touch. Using long relaxing strokes or deep penetrating points, every massage is tailored to fit each client's needs.
Reflexology - A relaxing pressure applied to the feet, hands and ears. Based on the theory that every nerve ends in the feet, thus stimulation to the feet affects the corresponding organ associated with that nerve. Reflexology has been used for thousands of years for relaxation and healing.
A CHIROPRACTIC & MASSAGE WELLNESS CENTER
CranioSacral Therapy - This is a relaxation therapy, not massage, that uses pressure to areas of the head & spine, reducing stress and releasing tension. CranioSacral helps regulate the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord.
AromaTouch Therapy - This technique incorporates simple hand techniques with the power of essential oils to create a powerful whole body wellness experience. It seeks to address four systemic constants that are present in daily life and which may serve as limiting factors in health: stress, immunity, the inflammatory response, and autonomic imbalance.
