Therapeutic Massage

bigstock-Young-attractive-woman-getting-39333676Therapeutic Massage can be a deeper firmer massage that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It facilitates the release of chronic patterns of tension and pain in the body. Alternatively, it can be relaxing and gentle, allowing the whole body to de-stress and rejuvenate.

The pressure and the style of massage is determined by the individual needs of each client. Among the types of therapeutic massage that Kate can offer are pre-natal massage, sports massage, deep tissue massage, and Swedish massage.

The Science Behind the Benefits

Researcher Simon Melov, a molecular biologist at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging says that “What massage seems to do is … it reduces the inflammatory response as a function of the damage you incurred while you’re exercising.”

Other researchers have found that massage can soothe anxiety and depression, reduce the stress hormone cortisol making you feel happier and often lowering blood pressure. Massage can boost the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, reducing a tendency toward depression.

A True Healer with Many Talents
