Massage therapy is the best medicine money can buy! Massage helps to lower stress levels, relax and rejuvenate the body and allows us to enter a deep state of rest. Massage helps us be more resilient and prepares the body for activity by enhancing circulation and keeping muscles supple and healthy, ready to perform optimally and helps prevent injuries.
Pain is often caused by imbalances in our structure and posture. This can be the result of injuries, repetitive or unbalanced activities or too much inactivity. Orthopedic massage and integrated manual therapy works well to help correct structural imbalances especially when used in conjunction with corrective exercises and stretching. This can restore strength, muscle balance and proper range of motion.
Bowen therapy is a remarkable technique. I've heard it aptly called the homeopathy of Rolfing. Intricate algorithms of precise subtle movements delivered with a light and gentle touch have a powerful effect on the body releasing long held tension patterns and deep seated stress from the nervous system, This has an effect of rebalancing the physical structure while freeing up movement patterns and is profoundly relaxing.
Craniosacral therapy releases and removes restrictions in the fascial layer of tissue surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This process allows for the restoration of the free flow of craniosacral fluid which bathes and nourishes the central nervous system tissues. Free flow of craniosacral fluid is necessary for the optimal functioning of the nervous system. The therapy is extremely relaxing, gentle and powerfully beneficial.
It's like cleansing our inner ocean. Lymph drainage encourages the exchange of interstitial fluids which bathes the cells. When we cleanse the interstitial fluid by enhancing lymph flow, we wash away the metabolic waste that accumulates around the cells. Increasing fluid exchange, we give the cells a big boost of nutrients and oxygen. This creates an effect of reversing aging, simply by keeping the internal environment of our cells clean and fresh.
We all need to let go of tension and relax more, but sometimes it isn’t easy to do. Massage is so wonderfully relaxing, healing and rejuvenating! It can be the best medicine our money can buy, and is so enjoyable too! It may come as a surprise to some, but our body requires maintenance just like any equipment does. It's best not to wait until you have problems to take care of yourself : make massage therapy your new healthy habit!
