My focus as a massage therapist and a physical therapist with over 24 years of experience
have led me to a style of bodywork that emphasizes balancing the nervous system
and activating the parasympathetic nervous system, taking a more holistic approach to healing.
The parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for the "rest and digest" response,
which counters the "fight or flight" response of the sympathetic nervous system.
Techniques used in this type of massage, such as gentle strokes, rhythmic breathing guidance, craniosacral
and myofascial techniques and soothing touch, work together to induce a state of deep relaxation.
By triggering the parasympathetic nervous system, this type of massage encourages the body
to release tension, reduce stress hormones like cortisol, promoting an overall sense of calm and tranquility.
Chronic stress can exacerbate pain by causing muscle tension and increasing the perception of discomfort.
Bodywork that focus on balancing the nervous system and activating the parasympathetic
response can directly impact pain by reducing stress and anxiety.
By promoting relaxation and reducing stress levels, these massages can create an environment
where the body's natural healing mechanisms can function optimally,
leading to pain reduction and improved overall well-being.
While my focus is on the nervous system, I do offer deeper work to sore areas and tight tissue to improve circulation and promote healing, it just isn't my primary focus nor will I provide deep tissue work to the entire body.
