Classical forms of massage therapy can reduce chronic pain, cultivate a positive body image and enhance a healthy immune function. This application of massage is used for general populations as well as post and pre natal patients.
Common injuries are shared by active populations, including competitive and recreational athletes. The most common of injuries shared is DOMS or "delayed onset muscle soreness". Massage can help reduce recovery time between
strenuous workouts and competition by alleviating discomfort related to DOMS and other injuries.
When physical & emotional demands exceed our ability to maintain balance, physical pain may manifest. Lack of homeostasis can put us at risk for disease. Massage Therapy stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, supporting balance. Application of treatment can lower blood pressure, reducing stress leaving the patient with a restored sense of wellbeing- relaxed and well rested.
Yoga & Stretch
Human beings do not move enough in our world today. Gravity adds a constant force on us, which takes a toll overtime. Nutrition, good posture, movement and strength are the best defense. We offer passive and active assisted stretch sessions. Yoga stretching & strength building techniques may be integrated into your treatment.
