Massage is a system that has been used for thousands of years to facilitate therapeutic relaxation. Although many methods have been developed for this purpose, the objectives remain the same. Stress, tension, tight muscles and anxiety are relieved as the soft tissues of the body are massaged and blood circulation is improved.
The chronic tenderness and achiness of Fibromyalgia can be alleviated through massage, allowing one to more comfortably engage in everyday activities. Helping the body achieve improved blood circulation as a result of Swedish Massage can relieve pain and stress while providing greater flexibility. Even the low back pain and tension often associated with pregnancy can be lessened.
Massage may be recommended by your physician if you have suffered injuries in the past, as manipulation of the deep tissue is an effective way to release the chronic stress which remains.
Types of Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial. Keep in mind that soreness is common after the treatment. It is advised to increase water consumption to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated Basalt stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Chair massage is conducted fully clothed in a specialized ergonomic chair. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule and on your lunch break!
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. As a result, the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session the therapist acts as a channel to deliver life force energy to the client to remove blockages, detoxify your system, and restore your vital life force energy. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands and can be conducted fully clothed. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain.
