Chronic fight-or-flight stress can create inflammatory and other chemicals that can interfere with a balanced mental health experience. With therapeutic massage, as the body relaxes, the potential for healing and balance increases. Therapeutic massage is increasingly viewed within the scientific and medical communities as a reliable way to increase endorphin production (natural opiates); promoting a relaxation response and increasing blood flow, cellular nutrient exchange and detoxification. The natural physiologic responses to therapeutic massage last beyond the massage session itself and can help to re-calibrate the stress response and the central nervous system to a calmer resting point.
Our massage therapists utilize several different techniques to facilitate a profound change not only in the physical body, but also in the energetic, spiritual body.
