Massage and bodywork do so much more than make you feel good—they have many tremendous health benefits. They help increase blood flow and circulation of lymph (which is part of your body’s natural defense system), help relieve stress, encourage better sleep, potentially increase energy levels, and so much more! I apply massage and bodywork techniques to help my clients alleviate chronic pain, such as headaches, neck and shoulder pain, back pain, hip pain, knee and foot pain—just to name a few. I have also worked with clients who have chronic Irritable Bowel Syndrome (also known as IBS), migraines, whiplash, TMJ dysfunction, as well as active and off-season athletes. Massage and bodywork can also benefit those who have healed from a recent surgery, where scar tissue tends to form adhesions to the underlying muscles and tissues. In other words, I can help get your body on the road to recovery better and faster, be it from joint replacement, accident, injury, or some other condition. Massage and bodywork can help you heal! Our body innately knows how to mend itself — sometimes it just needs a little help.
