Clear Your Mind on Occasion

Studies have found that when we’re overloaded with information or thoughts our brains and bodies need a break. Regular deep breathing can help. Taking a walk or doing some yoga can help quiet the mind as well. Especially before bedtime, relaxing and letting your mind drift is better for sleep than ruminating over what has gone on during the day, or what will take place tomorrow.

You’ll be at Your Sharpest after a Full Night’s Sleep

You’ll be at your sharpest after a full night’s sleep. For most adults, that means 6 hours or more. If you’ve got a big event coming up or something important at work, schedule a neuromuscular massage the day before. A good massage leads to good sleep.

What is Neuromuscular Massage and Why is it Helpful?

Neuromuscular massage is also a deep tissue technique that focuses on restoring strength and range of motion to an area of overuse or injury. Neuromuscular massage is not always as comfortable or relaxing as a Swedish massage, but the after effects are.

Neuromuscular massage is a targeted therapy to treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, persistent neck or back pain, and issues of overuse such as carpel tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow or shoulder and rotator cuff pain from golf or baseball.

What is Deep Tissue Massage and Why is it Helpful?

Deep tissue massage uses greater pressure on the muscles to focus on the tissue, tendons and fascia which will help relieve chronic muscle tension. Deep tissue massage is beneficial in lowering blood pressure and by boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.

What is Trigger Point Therapy and Why is it Helpful?

Trigger point therapy is designed to ease tightness within a constricted muscle that may refer pain to another part of the body. Cycles of isolated, increasing pressure followed by release results in an easing of pain in vulnerable areas such as the head and neck.

What is Swedish Massage and Why is it Helpful?

Swedish massage is perhaps the most common type of massage therapy and involves long, gliding strokes over the entire body. This type of massage increases the blood flow and provides a generally, relaxing experience. Swedish massage reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and boosts the immune system because it stimulates the number of white blood cells that fight infection.
