Bodywork offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body's natural ability to heal itself.
Massage has many physiological effects, such as:
Releasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. For this reason, massage is being incorporated into treatment for chronic illness, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain.
Increasing your blood flow, supporting your body in pumping more oxygen and nutrients into your musculature and vital organs.
Relieving pain for migraine and headache sufferers while decreasing the need for medication.
Improving your range of motion and decreasing discomfort for clients with muscular pain.
Reduces stress by having a balancing effect on your nervous system, sedating or stimulating depending on the type and length of treatment given.
Reducing recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminating subsequent pains of the athlete at any level.
Increasing your joint flexibility.
Relaxing and healing injured and overused muscles.
Stimulating your immune system by supporting the lymph system, the body’s natural defense, against toxic invaders.
Improving your muscle tone and preventing or delaying muscular atrophy resulting from inactivity.
Reducing post-surgery adhesions and edema while reducing and realigning scar tissue after healing has occurred.
Providing exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reducing shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion.
Relieving secondary pain that builds up around a primary source of pain (ex. pain and tingling in your wrists and hands brought about by tense arm and shoulder muscles, pain traveling down your leg as a result of tight low back muscles)
Thank you for your time and interest.
