MASSAGE THERAPY WORKS
"the nature of the human body is to heal illness and the doctor should be a servant to this capability" - Hippocrates
In my opinion, full body stress management massage is the most powerful healthcare method when it comes to balancing the activities of the central nervous system. Balancing the activities between the sympathetic nervous system (fight/flight/freeze) and the parasympathetic nervous system (rest/digest) is the mark of great health and the goal of my practice. An imbalance of these two systems has unhealthy results, acute and long term, manifesting in various forms of dis-ease in the body and mind.
Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, and other Medical Massage techniques help soften constricted muscle fibers and connective tissue, relieving symptoms of pain, stiffness, headaches, limited range of motion, cramping and other dysfunctions of the system. Massage therapy brings in fresh blood, oxygen, removes metabolic build up, optimizes neuromuscular communication, unsticks sticky adhesions, and relaxes the system so that it can adjust. Massage therapy brings the body back into balance. Massage therapy works.
