Massage Therapy

What is Massage Therapy?

Massage Therapy helps the body to heal by positively affecting all the systems of the body at a cellular level.  It is especially helpful to the muscles and surrounding tissues, boosting tissue repair, lymphatic return and blood circulation, energy production and cell growth and greatly eases the stress response in our bodies.  When we become accustomed to tension and restriction this distorts the signals our body uses to communicate with us and limits our ability to feel.  Touch helps us to heal by regaining sensation and awareness, literally bringing us back into our bodies and promoting regeneration. 

Massage Therapy provides relief from:

  • Chronic pain

  • Anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue, digestive disorders

  • Injuries, surgery recovery, scarring

  • Soreness, stiffness, spasm, swelling 

  • Hypertension/High blood pressure

  • Tension headaches and migraines by lessening their frequency

  • Restrictions of movement

Massage Therapy helps us to connect to the stillness and simplicity of just being, while also providing an oxygen rich environment for healing.

Not to mention, Massage Therapy helps boost the immune system's response to illness and disease. Did you know our skin is the largest organ of the body?  The skin is the first line of defense in the body’s immunity and is part of the immune system. Healthy skin helps the whole body maintain health.  For this reason, Namaste Therapies only uses plant based oils that are unprocessed, without synthetic additives or oil dispersants, and organic.  These high quality, organic, nutritious Ayurvedic oils are tailored to dosha type, as well as pain management, tissue building, for promoting healthy hair, or soothing skin conditions.  These oils are herbal infused, free from parabens, petroleum, or synthetic fragrances of any kind.  If you have known skin sensitivities or allergies, please let me know in advance.
