Massage and Other Therapies
studies have shown massage to reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure,
increase circulation and lymph flow, relax muscles and increase
endorphins (enhancing medical treatments). It is estimated that up to
ninety percent of disease is stress related. Massage can, without a
doubt, help manage stress and increase overall health and well being.
a massage can do you a world of good, and frequent massage can do even
more. This is the beauty of bodywork. Taking advantage of regularly scheduled self-care, can play a huge part in how healthy and
youthful you feel. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent
intervals is truly an investment in your health.
Reiki, a specific type of subtle energy work, is performed by the touch of the hands, allowing the flow of the energy from a limitless source (God Force) to the client via the Reiki practitioner.
Reiki practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to relax and harmonize.
Unlike other therapies based on the premise of a human energy field, Reiki seeks to restore order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced.
Reiki energy can have several basic effects: it can bring about deep relaxation, destroy energy blockages, detoxify the system, provide new vitality in the form of universal like energy, and increase the vibrational frequency of the body.
Reflexology treatments are based on the principal the certain parts of the body reflect the whole. Points, which correspond to all parts of the body, can be found in the feet, hands and ears. When gentle, massaging pressure is applied, the body's own healing processes are stimulated. The body progressively clears blockages, and refines balance and energy flow. This is a subtle yet powerful technique.
