When I set out my journey to become a massage therapist, I had a clear vision that I wanted to make massage available to people of all ages and conditions and to educate my clients in taking a proactive approach to healthcare. For the past 15+ years, I have worked to ensure that I keep my costs low so that I can pass along that savings to my clients, all the while continuing my studies so that I can educate and empower my clients. I’ve also taken my own personal injury experiences as opportunities, which I’ve translated into my work whenever possible.
Since 2001, I have been helping my clients experience relief from:
- Chronic pain
- Back and neck pain
- Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and Parkinsons
- Sports and other injuries
- Sciatica and tendonitis
- Good old fashioned stress, and more
In addition, I work with parents to teach pediatric and infant massage. Research has shown that massage improves weight gain in infants, improves digestion, and balances mood. Touch is essential in producing oxytocin—the hormone of attachment or bonding. Plus, it’s never too early to teach your child how to manage stress. Funds that I receive for this work goes directly to my other passion project—Project Inti. This is a small non-profit I co-created with my Peruvian partner to “spread a little sunshine” to children and families living in poverty.
Believe it or not, more than 80% of doctor’s visits relate to stress of some kind. The way the body is designed to respond to stress is through a “fight or flight” sympathetic mechanism. When a threat is perceived, the body automatically starts producing stress hormones, such as cortisol, to alert major muscles to fight off the stressor. Heart rates increase. Lungs and pupils dilate. The body starts shutting down its secondary functions, such as digestion, in order to protect vital organs for survival. All to help you either fight or run. The body doesn’t know the difference between a sabor-toothed tiger or your boss. It just knows this is how it’s supposed to respond to stress.
With massage, we are able to access the “rest and digest” parasympathetic system to produce a healthier state of equilibrium. Digestive enzymes are released, muscles relax, the heart rate and breathing stabilizes, and chemical neurotransmitters like serotonin (mood balancers) are released. Improving digestion is important in supporting your immune system. We want to make sure we absorb nutrients to support a healthy body and mind. Massage is one beneficial tool in proactively managing stress and keeping the body/mind/spirit in balance.
