Massage

Massage therapy is one of the best ways to achieve deep relaxation and allow the body to self rejuvenate. Besides the overall relief of stress, massage is a very effective treatment in many musculo-skeletal pain related injuries, and brings the body back into alignment and balance following labor. Because muscles react to surrounding bone injury, nerve compressions, or other injured muscles, it is important to assess muscular imbalances and address them with massage therapy.

Additional benefits of massage include:

  • Increasing lymph drainage and blood circulation
  • Improving posture and body alignment through proper muscle balance
    (very important for breastfeeding mothers)
  • Increasing awareness of habitual holding patterns that may be creating
    muscular imbalances
  • Inhibiting and breaking up scar tissue formation
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Alleviating discomfort
