Relaxation Bodywork

Relaxation Bodywork

Since Swedish massage is typically gentle and relaxing, it can be beneficial for most people. Everyone working in an office hunched over a computer or sitting in traffic on a daily basis can benefit from the healing elements of Swedish massage, if only to address stress, anxiety, and the pressures of our fast-paced society. You should consult with your massage therapist regarding any injuries or concerns you have, the depth of the pressure, skin sensitivities, or areas that may need more attention.
Multiple studies have found that Swedish massage is an effective way to help relieve anxiety. One study tracked the anxiety and vital sign levels of ICU patients before and after a 30-minute Swedish massage, and found that anxiety was reduced and vital signs improved immediately post-massage. Because Swedish massage can help reduce stress and anxiety, it can help improve your sleep. One study found that massage therapy improved the quality of sleep in breast cancer patients. Better sleep, in turn, reduces stress and anxiety. One of the biggest benefits of a Swedish massage is that it really helps to elevate your mood. Studies show that massage can increase serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin, which all help to elevate your mood and general well-being. It can also help reduce cortisol, the hormone that causes stress, which we could all should reduce at this time.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.

Reiki healing is paired with Chakra Balancing at Mind Your Body. We have found that completing the session using healing sounds and vibrational tunes we are better able to provide a longer lasting effect for our clients.
