Benefits of Massage

Therapeutic massage is an age-old remedy and health practice.  The healing systems of many cultures, including our own, use hands-on therapy to sooth aches and pains and facilitate the body’s own healing powers.  Many people are taking back the responsibility for their health and well being.  As a result, massage is becoming even more popular as a way of maintaining ones’ health.  Massage has the ability to affect every system of your body- general muscular tension, headaches,  muscular back pain, poor circulation, stress and anxiety are just a few.

Therapeutic massage can also help balance the effects of stress in our lives by triggering the “relaxation response” – relaxing these muscles, reducing anxiety levels, normalizing blocked energy  flow, improving immune system functioning and resorting a calm mind and feeling of well being.

During these economic times you may need to cut back on massage; but more than a luxury, a massage is a vital part of self-care that has a positive ripple effect on your body.  Arriving five (5) minutes before your scheduled time, allows us to tailor your session.   My intention is to resolve the pain or problem in as few sessions as possible.  My clients commonly experience significant improvement in the very first session. However, it is important to have realistic expectations when initiating any type of therapy.  Although, I have many times helped people find relief in one session. Every person is an individual and depending on the severity and complexity of the condition, more sessions may be needed accordingly.

Whether looking for relaxing massage to recover from an old or new injury, allow Caring Hands Massage Therapy to choose from a combination of modalities offered, i.e. hot stones, bamboo, deep tissue, etc.  Each one offers a different technique.  After a brief conversation concerning your specific needs, work with your therapist to compose a treatment plan. Allow each session to be individually tailored to your needs, providing you with the result you desire.
