When a person encounters stress, the body immediately goes into a ‘fight or flight’ mode. The heart rate increases, breathing becomes shallow and adrenaline begins to flow. People respond to stress in many different ways. Some people hold tension in their muscles others may get depressed or feel anxious. Staring at a computer screen for hours at a time can cause migraine headaches coupled with back and leg pain from sitting for too long with poor posture. Carpal tunnel syndrome is common in our keyboard society.

A common remedy is usually to take an over-the-counter painkiller, particularly those with acetaminophen as the active agent. Overuse of these drugs can lead to liver damage and kidney disease without ever addressing the root problem.

My job is to connect with a person’s central nervous system and help to calm the effects of the ‘fight or flight’ reaction and turn on the body’s natural relaxation response. Numerous research studies that have been conducted throughout the world have consistently found that massage therapy goes well above and beyond simply “feeling” good. Professional massage therapy has an impressive number and range of physical and emotional benefits just to name a few: 

Decreasing chronic pain by reducing nerve irritation and increasing mobility

Relaxes tense muscles by mechanically stretching the tissues to where they belong

Increases blood circulation and stimulates blood flow to swollen tissue from various sports injuries 

Promotes better sleep and reduces the effects of stress by promoting production of endorphins 

Relaxes irritated muscles and nerves after auto accidents or other injuries 

Common ailments I treat are: muscle pain, soft tissue injuries, neck pain, TMJ pain, headaches, tendonitis, shoulder pain, limited range of motion, upper and lower back pain, cervical injuries, tennis and golfer’s elbow, sciatica, sports injuries, whiplash from auto accidents and falls, and many more…
