Integrative Massage, Structural Bodywork & Yoga Therapy
Whole Body Health Care
Relaxation is not a luxury... it is effective preventative healthcare. Stress engages our sympathetic nervous system, better know as "fight or flight" response. The body needs to be in a parasympathetic state or "rest and digest" in order to perform many vital funtions. Massage is an excellent way to engage this relaxation response to allow the body to heal and repair itself by stimulating circulation, flushing toxins, and releasing muscular tension.

Relief from Chronic Pain
As we use our bodies, we develop neuromuscular patterns that compensate for an injury or weakness in the body. Often, this pattern become a engrained in us long after it is necessary. Over time, this can cause overuse, structural misalignments, and chronic pain. The good news is, through bodywork combined with increased body awareness and customized stretches, these patterns can be replaced with proper alignment and healthy movements.
