Its Nice To Be Kneaded - A Touching Experience
Do you feel like you're carrying the world's burdens on your shoulders? Enjoy a relaxing, touching experience. Place your trust and your body in the loving hands of a trained professional Massage Therapist.
Professional, Therapeutic Massage is a healing art, not a sexual technique.
Massage alleviates the effects of stress you often arent even aware of. Large muscle knots create pockets of tension throughout your body, blocking vital energy, reducing circulation and glandular function. Through massage, your body gets the healthy attention it deserves without pills or drugs.
Specific Scientific Physical Benefits Of Massage
Massage accelerates blood flow throughout your body, without straining your heat, bringing more nutrients and oxygen to organs and muscles. It helps your body restore itself, rebuild tissue, and you enjoy a more relaxed, comfortable feeling.
Massage soothes nerves to your organs, which causes related blood vessels to dilate increasing blood flow for healing or more efficient function. Most internal organs are supplied by nerves, which branch at the spinal cord. Also meridian lines have been mapped containing a non-cellular liquid not fully understood but Chinese have long recognized their importance as "energy" flow. Acupressure techniques were developed to open blockage to this energy flow. Your feet provide easy access to these meridians - thus Reflexolgy techniques are often used as part of massage.
PRESSURE OR TRIGGER POINTS
Acupuncture points along meridians trigger the nervous system to send messages to the brain, releasing pain feeling or relieving tension-causing pain.
Lactic and carbonic acids are waste products of muscle activity, which results in fatigue, muscle soreness and even cramps. Lactic acid, the prime irritant, is formed when glycogen is burned during exercise. Massage stimulates the metabolic process to speed flow of lactic acid through the body's complex lymph system to either be released or reconverted to sugar.
The very successful East German track team uses massage very effectively. A study shows after exercise, a 5 minute rest results in a muscle recovery rate of about 20%. But 5 minutes of massage using fluid release techniques increases the recovery rate to 75%-100% or more!
Oils used in massage can help the skin become more elastic and supple.
OUR AUTO BODIES
We often treat our autos better than our bodies with washing, wax, tune-ups and preventative maintenance. Yet our bodies can't be traded in every 3 years or 60,000 miles. Our bodies come with no written warranty and no replacement parts are available from the manufacturer!
HOW TO RECEIVE A MASSAGE
Because massage is not a common part of our contemporary cultural experience, many people do not get the most out of massage.
