Back From Vacation!

Hello!

It’s great to be back from vacation!  Everyone needs some time to recharge.  A great way to recharge is through therapeutic massage!  There is so much to know about therapeutic massage and I look forward to sharing all that I know with you about it.

Did you know that massage:

  • reduces heart rate
  • lowers blood pressure
  • increases blood circulation and lymph flow
  • relaxes muscles
  • improves range of motion
  • increases endophins (the body’s natural painkillers)
  • helps people feel less anxious and stressed

Massage therapy has also been shown to be very beneficial in areas such as chronic arthritis, musculoskeletal syndromes, and chronic headaches. 

What is Therapeutic Massage?

  • It involves the manipulation of soft tissue stuctures of the body to alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress
  • It promotes health and wellness

What are the different forms of therapeutic massage?

  • Swedish:  gentle and relaxing
  • Pressure point therapy:  for certain conditions and injuries
  • Sports:  focuses on muscle groups relevant to the particular sport

I look forward to sharing all the benefits of massage with you this week. 

The Power of Healing Is In Your Hands!
