Massage therapy is a wonderful tool to release tension and stress.
Massage therapy is a wonderful tool to release the tension from stress that resides in our physical body. Massage therapy has been a practiced for thousands of years across many cultures as a way to improve health. Through a variety of techniques the body’s musculature begins to shift from a constant state of contraction to relaxation. This aids in the removal of toxins that congregate in tense areas. Once circulation is improved the muscles finally get the oxygen and nutrients that they have been lacking and the body returns to a state of balance (homeostasis). This strengthens the immune system and increases your energy levels while improving your overall existence. There are many types of massage available today. Each type has particular advantages and should be assessed accordingly.
Ayurveda is the Indian system of medicine & health care. It is the foundation or sister science of the Yoga tradition. Ayur – means life and Veda means science or knowledge. Ayurveda acknowledges that there is a unique relationship that each individual has with his or her environment. As long as we live in balance with that, our body has everything that it needs to be healthy & whole. Ayurveda is unique in that the diagnosis & treatments for imbalance consider the entire range of life from the macrocosm to the microcosm as well as the entire range of human experience from the physical/energetic/mental/emotional & spiritual aspects. Right diet, proper herbs and healthy lifestyle are encouraged as well as various bodywork treatments & various Yogic tools including meditation.
