Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Our expert therapists provide therapeutic, deep tissue and swedish massage 7 days a week.  Great for low back pain and sprain strain injuries.

The benefits of massage therapy are well known in the medical community.

Improved Circulation

The squeezing and pulling of the tissues detoxes by flushing lactic acid from the muscles into the lymph system to be carried away as waste,  resulting in lower blood pressure and improved circulation and body function.

Relaxed Muscles

If you’re an active person you  need a massage. Lactic acid builds up from sugar combustion in muscles and causes soreness. Simple chores like gardening and other activities  can cause muscle stiffness which limits the joint range of motion over time. Massage benefits are accelerated muscle recovery and increased stamina.

Our therapists will help loosen your muscles and flush out the lactic acid.

Improves Range of Motion

Tight muscles can cause injuries and cause over exertion.  As your muscles tighten up, your range of motion diminishes, which in turn makes other muscles tighten and compensate.

Our massage experts will work your  muscles and joints to make them more flexible, loosen your tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue, plus give your aching muscles relaxing deep-tissue massage.

Always mention to the therapist any history or issues they should know about in order to tailor the massage specifically to your needs.

Headache Relief

Headaches and migraines are among the most common disorders of the human nervous system worldwide. That’s due to an increase in stress and toxins in the body. A steady build-up in anxiety and tension in the back, neck, shoulders, and head can lead to blinding headaches.

Massage therapy releases tension with a series of techniques designed to decrease immediate pain while loosening up the underlying musculature. This releases pain well past the massage therapy session.

Improved Sleep

Tension can cause sleep disorders. Tense muscles make it impossible to lie comfortably in bed, disturbing sleep patterns further. A lack of proper sleep  increases stress levels during the day. This creates a self-supporting cycle of discomfort.

Massage therapy improves the restorative properties of your sleep by increasing the levels of serotonin in the bloodstream. These naturally released compounds are believed to contribute to proper regulation of important body functions like appetite, mood, and sleeping patterns.

Improved Posture

Poor posture and Tech-neck happens without thinking about it. Hunching over a computer terminal or craning your neck to look at your mobile phone puts a lot of strain on your muscles. This forward head carriage increases tension, which accelerates the effects of poor posture which can cause permanent damage if not handled.

Massage therapy loosens up tight muscles that your body may of adapted to with bad posture. Patients report after the massage to have increased range of motion and improved posture.

Speeds Rehabilitation

Athletes use Massage therapy to speed healing and as a result, recover quickly from training. The techniques that were once only understood only by professional trainers are now available to anyone that could benefit from therapeutic massage. Massage activates molecules that reduce inflammation and promote mitochondrial growth and flushed acid out of the muscle to reduce achiness.

Rapid Release Takes Healing Further

Relax Holistic uses Rapid Release technology to speed healing of scar tissue and muscle adhesions. This therapy uses high-speed, targeted vibration to focus directly on the muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves that are causing you discomfort or diminishing your quality of life.

Western medicine concentrates on getting injuries to heal over as quickly as possible, which leads to problems with scar tissue. This scar tissue can be visible or internal, usually called an adhesion. When scar tissue forms as the site of an injury, it’s produced by a buildup of collagen, just like skin. However, this scar tissue doesn’t have the proper blood supply, and it dries out. These scar adhesions can spread and can cause pain, numbness, diminished range of motion, and other chronic problems.

Rapid Release technology relies on the fact that the vibration frequency of the treatment passes harmlessly and painlessly through the outer layer of your skin. But it is perfect for breaking up the more brittle adhesions beneath the surface. If you’ve been suffering from discomfort at the site of an old injury, Rapid Release is the perfect way to get some relief — naturally finally.

Acupuncture  for pain relief, weight loss, anxiety and stress, hormones, fertility and more….

Acupuncture for pain relief, weight loss, anxiety and stress, hormones, fertility and more….

Relax Holistic has solutions for pain relief, weight loss, anxiety, stress, depression, fibromyalgia, infertility, headaches, joint pains, erectile dysfunction and all other ailments. Acupuncture is also an adjunct to medical treatments including cancer and chemotherapy.

Chronic pain may cause anxiety, weight gain and stress.

To make a diagnosis, the 12 pulse points on your wrists are evaluated , one for each organ in your body as well as your tongue.  The Acupuncturist will evaluate these findings as well as any other labs and a treatment plan is made. It may include herbal remedies and other modalities such as moxibustion or cupping or physical terapy.  The result of acupuncture is to achieve balance in the meridian organ systems. In other words, the body chemistry will become more balanced and symptoms will disappear.

The treatment session involves lying still while about five to twenty needles are inserted and left in place for 25 minutes. Most patients fall into  deep relaxation and wake up refreshed. Other recommended modalities may be infra-red light therapy, moxabustion, cupping, gua-sha, tui-na massage, ear seeds, muscle stim.

Acupuncture needles generally are so fine that they do not cause pain as associated with traditional western medicine.

Anxiety, Stress and Fibromyalgia

Pain, fatigue, tingling, and other fibromyalgia symptoms commonly trigger  panic attacks. The anxiety creates stress which has a powerful effect on the hormones in your body. This affects the immune system and triggers an inflammatory response to many allergens. Anxiety and stress cause more pain which creates more anxiety and the cycle continues. Acupuncture can break this cycle.

Treatments may help treat side effects of  medications, balance hormones and release endorphins to make you feel better.

 

NO Needle Acupuncture

For those who are afraid of the needles yet want the effects of acupuncture treatments, our Acupuncturists offer a no needle treatment. This consists of a traditional tongue and pulse diagnosis, an acupressure massage coupled with tuning fork meridian therapy, laser stim, cupping, tui-na or gua-sha muscle therapy.  Stimulation of the points in this way is just as effective as using  needles.

 

Arthritis

Acupuncture effectively  controls arthritis and joint inflammation when coupled with dietary improvements and massage therapy. With consistent treatment the immune system and circulation improves. Pain is reduced and flair ups are controlled.

 

Weight Loss

Acupuncture stimulates your body’s circulation and in turn, improves several factors known to contribute to obesity.  Studies show it can affect the part of your brain that feels hunger. Acupuncture reduces stress, releases endorphins and balances your body chemistry. The Acupuncturist will give at least 10 treatments to balance the systems of your body. The mind becomes more in sync with the body and abnormal food cravings are lessened. The Acupuncturist will make dietary and lifestyle suggestions and in many cases the weight starts to fall off.
