MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy relaxes the nervous system, which, in turn, reduces muscular discomfort and eases the body back to equilibrium.

 

It's a good way to prepare for deeper energy healing techniques that explore root causes of physical and emotional pain.

NO PAIN NO GAIN? NO WAY

According to the research, the best results of therapeutic massage come from calming the body, not beating it up. Saying "I can take it!" only causes stress. You don't need to tolerate pain to receive the benefits of massage therapy.

 

There's no evidence* that proves the no pain no gain theory. It's a myth that massage must hurt to be effective. Pain puts you into "fight or flight" mode!

 

What you want is the opposite, the "relaxation response." That's why there is no "butt-kicking" in my treatment room. Here's what you can expect instead:

1. Expert integrative, intuitive massage that magically unwinds every pain point, but does not hurt. And don't worry. It's not too gentle either!

2. Super "Power Booster" add-on services. Yes, you add them on, but don't think of them as "extras!" They will transform a nice massage into a deep healing experience that touches on root causes of pain and heavy emotion

3. Relaxed timing to accommodate your pre-session consult and post-session check in. Take a breath, settle in, and don't be rushed back out the door.

*This is a thorough and fascinating review about the evidence-based effects of massage therapy
