Remedial / Relaxation Massage

Massage therapy uses a variety of techniques to manipulate the muscular structure and soft tissues of your body. These techniques include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, vibration, rocking, kneading and compression using primarily the hands, although massage therapists do use other areas of the body, such as the forearms or elbows.

All of the techniques are used for the benefit of the musculoskeletal, circulatory-lymphatic, nervous, and other systems of your body. The intent is to relax the soft tissues, increase delivery of blood and oxygen to the massaged areas, warm them, and decrease pain. In fact, massage therapy positively influences the overall health and well-being of you.

The benefits of massage

How you can benefit from massage?

Below are a few of the conditions listed that massage has been proven to help with:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relieve headache and migraine pain.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.

Massage and stress

Regardless of the reasons you may seek out treatment a luxurious treat, stress relief, or pain management, massage can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Experts estimate that over ninety percent of dis-ease is stress related*. And perhaps nothing will age you faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While it's unrealistic for you to be able to completely eliminate anxiety and pressure from your life, massage can, without a doubt, help you manage stress. This translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.

Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance massage can provide you can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.

Profound effects

In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout your body, with profound effects. Research shows the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units.

Increase the benefits with regular visits

Getting a massage can do you a world of good. And getting a massage regularly can do even more. A scheduled self-care plan can play a huge part in how healthy you’ll be. Allowing yourself time for massage at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with me to establish a treatment schedule that best suits your needs.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a holistic treatment based on the principle that there are areas and points on the feet, hands, and ears that map via the nervous system to corresponding parts of the body. When pressure is applied to these areas and points it stimulates the movement of energy along the nerve channels, and helps to restore homeostasis (balance) in the whole body.

All the systems need to be working together well to maintain a healthy balance. Stress, injury, or illness can cause the balance to be disrupted.

Reflexology uses special finger/thumb manipulations to stimulate reflex points, which will stimulate the flow of energy to the corresponding body part. This gradually helps to restore homeostasis and stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself, physically and emotionally. As reflex points are minute, the movements are quite precise and care must be taken to cover all of them to ensure that the treatment is comprehensive and therefore a holistic treatment for the whole body. However, there is no reason why a specific reflex point (or points) can’t be worked on more if an imbalance is detected. Imbalances manifest themselves through crystals at the affected reflex point, which vary from being slightly crunchy like sugar to lumps of varying sizes. Dispersing these crystals is what unblocks energy channels, and this is done by applying firm pressure with the thumb (or fingers depending on where on the foot the reflex point is). The odour, temperature, and moistness of a foot also play a part in assessing it. It will often take several treatments to awaken the reflexes and start to see some effect.

Reflexology is generally considered safe, it is not used as a diagnosis or cure.
