Gentle touch therapies to promote optimal health

Therapeutic Value of Bodywork

Experts estimate that upwards of 90% of dis-ease is stress-related. Therapeutic bodywork is effective for reducing stress, which translates into:

  • Greater energy.
  • Better sleep quality.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Reduced fatigue.
  • Decreased anxiety.

Specific benefits of bodywork include:

  • Relieve migraine pain intensity and/or frequency.
  • Alleviate digestive discomforts including acid reflux, bloating and constipation.
  • Enhance post-operative healing.
  • Promote functional tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue.
  • Alleviate pain and improve mobility.
  • Release endorphins which are the body's natural painkiller.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers.
  • Provide post-partum care for mothers and infants.
  • Enhance immunity and detoxification by stimulating lymph flow, the body's natural defense system.
  • Improve circulation, which increases oxygen and nutrient flow to tissues and vital organs.

Many people experience an overall improved sense of body awareness and well-being through consistent and regular therapeutic bodywork. This increases an individual's ability to recognize sooner the signs and symptoms of illness or dis-ease (such as pain, inflammation, fatigue or digestive discomforts). This important part of self-care empowers and enables people to respond appropriately to the messages of the body and take action to move toward optimal health.
