Massage & Bodywork

Massage therapy and bodywork has many known benefits, with the most common being overall stress reduction, increased circulation and decrease in blood pressure and adrenaline levels.81897075

When our stress-induced cortisone-levels are high for prolonged periods of time, the body is stuck in a pattern of “fight or flight” which means the body tissues are not getting the rejuvenative resources they need to create a state of optimal health.

When we experience chronic stress in our life, normal body functions start to shut down and we begin to operate from a constant state of frenzy and hightened alert.

In this environment, our health breaks down and our immune system is compromised, opening the door for illness and disease.

4900_104215138948_695153948_2822099_8070_sNatural remedies help you fight this unnatural state in your body, so you can return to your more normal, calm state of being. Naam Yoga, Meditation, Shakti Naam, Harmonyum, Massage Therapy and regular practice of TCM, Ayurveda, and other natural forms of health-giving wellness systems, awaken your parasympathetic nervous system by stimulating the vagus nerve and your entire glandular system so that your “fight or flight” alert patterns in your body quiet down. This is absolutely necessary for achieving optimal health in today’s society.

A necessary step in staying healthy is the ability to eliminate and get rid of the everyday substances that cause toxicity in the body. All of the practices above assist the body in everyday detoxification so necessary for our health.

Besides being an incredible stress-reducer, regular massage and bodywork maintain healthy body awareness so you can more readily recognize imbalances when they occur.

Keep your thoughts positive at all times. And remembering that your words have power. Use them to uplift and enrich.
