I don't believe in "no pain no gain," not for massage, anyways.
Did you know?
Research agrees with what I've practiced intuitively for years:
Initiating the relaxation response is the most evidence-based effect of massage therapy.
It isn't softening deep tissues, flushing toxins + lactic acid, breaking down fascia, dissolving knots, stretching muscles.
This is a very long article by a massage therapist turned research reviewer ad nauseam (he can be caustic :-)
Massage works to the degree you can coax the body into the healing relaxation response,
and all the health benefits that go along with the resulting influx of serotonin and dopamine and oxytocin.
So no, there's no butt-kicking in my treatment room.
This is what I DO do:
expert stress reduction massage that magically unwinds every pain point, but does not hurt,
essential oils + CBD oil at no extra charge,
and plenty of time for your pre-session consult and post-session check in.
Soothing, uplifting, enlightening, meditative - people love this popular healing method from Japan
Choose reiki for relief from stress and anxiety, or if you're in pain and massage feels like too much.
Reiki can open you to new hope + possibilities, often accessed in your meditative state during your session.
Looking for a psychic reading? That's different from reiki.
I practice traditionally. Reiki will decide if there is intuitive information for you. If there is, I will happily share at your request.
Such info comes to me in nature images and metaphors that we can discuss.
If you are looking for fortune telling you will be disappointed.
The BODYMIND INTEGRATION Add-On can also be added to Reiki for a more pro-active session.
REIKI FOR AWAKENING SOULS
ARE YOU FEELING EXPANSIVE?
SUDDENLY DISSATISFIED WITH THE STATUS QUO?
"KNOWING" THERE IS SOMETHING MORE?
INCREASINGLY AWARE OF THE BIGGER PICTURE?
I especially attract clients who answer yes to these questions and seek reiki as a result.
Reiki is a simple + accessible jumping-off point for spiritual exploration.
Did you know reiki is a simple meditation lifestyle practice? Although it's known as a hands-on healing method done by a practitioner, it actually has much broader application as a way to calm the mind + body. Every mindful day.
