Bodywork

🌿

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.
