Deep Tissue Massage

Understanding Deep Tissue Massage!
Deep Tissue Massage targets the deep tissue structure of the fascia and muscles, referred to as connective tissue. Of the many types of massage, deep tissue focuses on the release of muscle tension and chronic knots (aka adhesions).

Deep tissue massage can break up and eliminate scar tissue from previous injuries. A common problem is that stressed muscles can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go, and this will cause inflammation that allows toxins to build up in your muscle tissue. The inflammation and toxins contribute to pain and stress. Deep Tissue Massage breaks up and releases the built-up toxins by loosening the muscles. With the toxins released, blood and oxygen can circulate as they should through one’s body. Being properly hydrated before you go to your massage appointment and drinking plenty of water after one of these massages is highly recommended.

Suffering from Allergies or Asthma?

Suffering from Allergies or Asthma? Many people turn to alternative therapies and complementary medicine for allergies/asthma relief. I was diagnosed with asthma when I was 16yr old and every since then I have taken steroids and inhalers. About 5 years ago I decided to make a change in my lifestyle by eating healthier and excerising. Three years ago I added Therapuetic Massage Therapy to my lifestyle to help relieve stress which therefore relieve tensed muscles to help me breathe. Those that suffer from allergies/asthma know they have to manage their asthma for the rest of their lives, they would like to reduce their reliance on the medications traditionally prescribed for asthma, particularly steroids… including me, not finding the relieve they want from traditional medicine. I recently added daily supplements that is helping with my allergies and the inflammation caused by Asthma. Coconut oil, Vitamin C, and Magnesium.

Massage therapy for Asthma, another mind-body technique, brings relief to some people with asthma. As a Massage therapist I will work on your neck and ribcage to release tension in the muscles that facilitate breathing. “Studies have shown massage therapy can help some asthma sufferers in terms of balancing muscles and improving lung function,” says Amanda Lien, ND, a naturopathic physician. Additionally, massage therapy may alleviate some of the anxiety you feel about having breathing problems.

Chair Massage On-Site Niederst Management

photo 1

Today at Niederst Management, I had the opportunity to come out to relieve some stress and tension for several employees with chair massages. In today’s business environment we all know stress in the workplace can lead to mental and physical strain that can ultimately impair employee’s productivity. They took time to de-stress by stepping away from their cubicles. Sitting in a chair, staying fully clothed, 10-15 minutes the length of a typical work break. It’s a very comfortable ergonomic chair for them to unwind while the stress melts away.  During the massage, the employee stays fully clothed and no oil is used. No need to change clothes. The techniques used are to focus on the upper part of the body and release tension from their neck, back, shoulders and arms ready to leave refreshed.

On-site chair massage is becoming one of the fastest growing employee’s wellness benefits that companies are offering. It is convenient, safe and very cost-effective. It boots employee’s morale and also provides valuable health benefits. Not only does massage feel good but it makes your employee’s feel good about the work they do. Employee’s often times deserve more than praise and should be recognized and appreciated for the hard work conducted on a daily basis. It will let them know you notice their dedication and commitment to doing a great job. So remember for special events, milestone celebrations, parties, or just because you care about your employee’s 10-15  chair massage will go a long way to say Thank You.
