MORE INFORMATION ON MASSAGE THERAPY

  • Massage Therapy involves the scientific manipulation of soft tissues in the body to improve:

    • functionality of muscles, nerves and joints

    • increase circulation of blood and lymphatic systems to relieve pain

    • improve the functioning of your immune system

    Additional benefits:

    • relief of tension-related conditions, such as headaches

    • relieve stress

    • reduce anxiety

    • increase relaxation

    • improve posture

    • improve sleep

  • Traumatic events cause a fight, flight, or freeze reaction to occur at a basic instinctual level.  Sometimes, when the traumatic event is overwhelming to our mind and to our nervous system, we can become locked into a state of hyperarousal; which is one of the symptom clusters seen in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 

    Trauma can show up physically as:

    • Grinding teeth

    • Chronic pain

    • Insomnia

    • Muscle spasm

    • High or low muscle tone

    • Headaches

    • And others

  • By working with a massage therapist who has an understanding of the neurobiology of trauma in conjunction with a mental health professional, a safe release of trauma energy can be facilitated physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
