All Gain No Pain

Stress has been identified as a major factor in many illnesses and painful conditions. This is in part because of the hormonal and chemical changes it produces in the body which cause inflammation of the joints and soft tissues. The antidote to stress is the triggering of the “Relaxation Response” a term coined by Herbert Benson, MD of Harvard Medical school. It describes the switching of the nervous system from “fight or flight” mode (where harmful stress hormones flood the tissues) to “rest and digest” mode (where the body can focus on repairing damaged tissues and healing.)

Massage Therapy and meditation are two ways to coax the body into the Relaxation Response.

Massage Therapy

There are many styles of massage therapy. Whether I use Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular, or Myofascial work, I do it in such a way so as not to cause more pain in the body. I feel the “no pain no gain” idea is outdated. Force and pain stress the tissues rather than inducing the relaxation.

Instead I use intuition and mindfulness with every technique  to soften the tissue and bring the body/mind into a deep, quiet state of balance. Experience my work with the complementary sample session if you are a new client. Or click below to book a regular session.

Reiki

Nowadays many people have heard of Reiki, but aren’t really sure what it is. As Reiki takes its place in the field of health and wellness, it is useful to dispel the myths that surround it. One myth is that Reiki is a kind of “woo woo” New Age practice that is somehow dangerous or made up and useless.

Practitioners of Reiki sometimes provide esoteric healing services along with Reiki, and that creates confusion as to the true nature of Reiki. Reiki itself does not include work with crystals, angels, channeling, mediumship, or magic.

Reiki is a meditative practice as taught by its Japanese founder, Mikao Usui, in the early 20th century. The components of the system are similar to other familiar eastern meditative practices such as yoga, tai chi, and the many forms of seated meditation.  Deep states of meditation again, bring about the relaxation response and that is the basis for the “healing” that occurs with its use.

If it’s your first appointment, you can request Reiki for your complementary sample session. Or, you can request the signature 60 minute massage, which adds 30 minutes of Reiki for no extra charge. Or click below to book a regular Reiki session.
