HEALING HANDS YOU CAN TRUST
My passion for healing began in 2001, when I learned that God created the human body to possess an enormous, astonishing, and persistent capacity to heal itself in the absence of disease.
Disease generally occurs when we abuse our bodies or deprive them of basic requirements to keep us healthy over extended periods, allowing free radicals to increase. Excessive numbers of free radicals in the body's cells creates disease. Factors that increase production of free radicals in our cells include: inflammation, infection and extreme stress.
Massage Therapy works directly to alter the body's nervous system, calming the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight division) and stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system (craniosacral division).
" Ones body will heal itself unless one keeps injuring it."
HOT STONE MASSAGE
Hot stone massage therapy is a deeply soothing massage that melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem—such as a frozen shoulder. People tend to assume therapeutic massage means deep tissue massage, and that they will get a very strong massage. But this is not always the case. Deep tissue massage is great at breaking down scar tissue and getting your blood circulating, but it may not be what you need on a particular day. A good therapist will apply the specific techniques and the right amount of pressure to address your need, and sometimes that’s a lighter touch.
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomfort experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).
In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension -- which aids in better sleep -- and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
