stress reduction is key to health

energy healing

All relaxation therapies can put the body into a state of homeostasis and trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, which can put the body back into a state of balance.  For the body to be healthy and avoid 'dis-ease' all the body's systems, organs and glands need to work together harmoniously. 

Ancient Eastern medical systems have long upheld that emotional states can reside in specific areas of the body.  Problems with these emotions manifest along the meridians (energy channels) that run throughout the body to all major organs and glands in the body and 'get stuck'. All forms of therapy can help to unblock these congested areas to help the body and mind back to a balanced state.


Feeling stressed, anxious or out of kilter? Try one hour of therapy and see for yourself how much better you will feel.

The body seeks this state of homeostasis where healing can take place. All forms of massage induce deep relaxation, allowing the nervous system to calm down, blood flow to improve and aid the removal of toxins.

Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard’s Mind Body Institute, has studied stress reduction for 35 years. He found that stress causes physical or emotional blockages and that stress reduction was essential to the creation of health. He coined the phrase “relaxation response”. He defines this as “a physical state of deep rest that changes the physical and emotional responses to stress – for example: decrease in heart rate, blood pressure and muscle tension.” He also found that regular elicitation of the relaxation response has been scientifically proven to be an effective treatment for a wide range of stress-related disorders. In fact, to the extent that any disease is caused or made worse by stress, the relaxation response is essential to healing it.
