Are you looking for a professional Massage Therapist?
Are fed up with nagging muscle pain? 
We all know we need to take better care of ourselves and lead healthier lives. Why not start today with a massage?

Along with a host of other benefits, massage therapy can help you sleep better, combat stress, reduce muscle pain and tension, increase athletic performance, and generally enhance feelings of well-being. In other words, massage therapy makes you feel good and keeps you happy! Our massages not only benefit the body, they benefit the mind as well. Experience mental and spiritual healing as your mind releases stress and worry, and allows a renewed sense to energy and emotional well-being to enter your spirit

The ancient art of massage has been used throughout the centuries to soothe aches and pains and facilitate the body’s own healing powers. With today’s busy, stressful lifestyles, there’s never been a better time to take advantage of the benefits of massage therapy.

  Massage benefits include:

  • Emotional Balance
  • Relaxation
  • Physical Healing
  • Improved Digestion
  • Improved Mobility
  • Pain Relief
  • Detoxification
  • Increased Energy
  • Improved Circulation
  • Improved Sleeping Patterns
  • Stress Reduction
  • Increased Productivity
  • Emotional Balance
  • Increases endorphins (the body's natural painkillers)
  • May enhance medical treatment
  • Relieves muscle tension and stiffness
  • Enhances athletic performance
  • Provides asthma relief


Therapeutic massage can help with a wide range of medical conditions, including: • Anxiety • Arthritis (osteoarthritis and rheumatoid) • Asthma and bronchitis • Carpal tunnel syndrome • Chronic and temporary pain • Circulatory problems • Depression • Digestive disorders, including spastic colon, constipation and diarrhea • Headache, especially when due to muscle tension • Insomnia • Myofascial pain (a condition of the tissue connecting the muscles) • Reduced range of motion • Sinusitis • Sports injuries, including pulled or strained muscles and sprained ligaments • Stress • Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)

 A Powerful Ally


There’s no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your health care regimen.

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.




                                                         
                                                                                                                                   

                                       
                                                     Let me dedicate my life today
                                                 to the care of those
                                                 who come my way


                                             
Let me touch each one
                                                 with healing hands,
                                                   and the gentle art
                                                    for which I stand.

                                                 
Let the divine force
                                                   flow from me to you,
                                                       let our energy
                                                       and spirit renew.


                                                  
And when tonight
                                                    when day is done,
                                                    let me rest in peace
                                                     if I helped just one.
