Massage Therapy has many wonderful benefits to set it apart from other therapies. Many are now using massage as an alternative to modern medicine. It is, after all, an ancient practice that still has value to this day. Massage is a great addition to any wellness practice and routine.
One of the main benefits of massage is stress reduction. Stress causes tension in our muscles, especially in our neck and shoulders. Getting a massage can help relieve muscular tension, and it can be a great addition when one is trying to lower stress levels in their life.
Anyone who is struggling with muscular strain, tension or is interested in a relaxation massage would benefit from a Swedish massage. This is a perfect massage for every day fatigue and wear and tear.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue is slower and focuses on specific issues within the body. Those that are suffering from stiffness and chronic muscular pain would benefit from a deep tissue massage. Deep tissue can help to relieve sciatica, fibromyalgia, low-back pain, and muscle tension.
Designed to help anyone! If you can breathe, you can do yoga. Private yoga can either supplement your massage treatment or can be separate from massage. Very often what I see is a disconnection between mind and body. When we learn certain postures, it can alleviate the same complaints we get in massage. In fact, yoga can act as a self-massage. Mindful exercise is one of the best ways to compliment massage treatment, and one can see many of the same benefits you get in massage. There are many different variations and modifications one can do in yoga to help with muscular tension, aches, and soreness.
Some of the benefits you’ll see through yoga:
- Increases awareness of mind, body, spirit
- Increases respiratory intake and outtake
- Lowers stress
- Increases flexibility through stretching and strengthening
- Helps to advance a personal practice
- Gives tools to soothe anxiety and depression
- Yoga Therapy
- Hatha Yoga
- Vinyasa Yoga
- Yin Yoga
- Restorative Yoga
Chakra Energy-Balance Therapy
It is easy to often feel stuck in our habits and daily practices. We get stuck in our emotions and mental fluctuations that leave us feeling lethargic, anxious, depressed, or jittery. This is a therapy to help the client tune in with their deeper self. We have subtle energy in our body, called chakras, which are like wheels of subtle energy spinning along our spine. They act as channels to help us cope with our survival, creativity, digestion, emotions, communication, intelligence, and joy.
Aromatherapy: Essential oils are picked especially for each center of our chakras. Essential oils target receptors in our nose that go to the brain as a form of chemical communication. Essential oils can send messages to our brain, such as to relax, to promote digestion, to ease muscle pain, or to awaken all other senses.
Tuning Forks: Another tool used to stimulate our chakra centers is through vibration and sound therapy. They have a natural calming effect that can soothe the mind through our hearing.
Crystals: Crystals act as a direct connection to the earth and nature. Crystals carry many healing and vibrational qualities that can help us to relax, tap into greater wisdom, and longer, deeper sleep and grounding.
