Massage therapy is a necessary part of keeping your body in balance. It releases muscular tension and allows your body to move freely, countering the effects of stress, anxiety, or lack of rest. I offer a range of BodyWork and Massage therapies, including:
Pressure Point Therapy
Pressure point therapy works through the body's meridian lines using the same points as acupuncture. Gentle pressure is applied to each point releasing tension and pain in the muscles and promoting circulation.
- Stress and tension relief
- Relaxation of the body and mind
- Increased blood circulation
- Aids in the removal of toxins
- Relief from headaches, neck, and shoulder pain
- Promotes the healing of injuries
- Increase in energy levels
- Increase in an overall feeling of well-being
Trigger Point Therapy
When a muscle is extremely tight or in spasm, a build-up of lactic acid forms small contractual knots causing fatigue, stress, and poor circulation. The pain caused by trigger points in the muscles is often misdiagnosed as arthritis, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, or several other conditions. They can also refer pain to other areas of the body along nerve pathways - often where the pain is felt isn't where the treatment is required. Trigger points in muscles can pull on tendons and ligaments associated with the muscles causing pain deep within a joint where there are no muscles.
By applying pressure to these points deep in the muscles, tension and pain can be relieved and improved freedom of movement to joints can be achieved.
