PUT YOUR BODY
IN GOOD HANDS
Release, Relax, Unwind
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
I have been a licensed Massage Therapist at leading wellness facilities since 2017. When I touch a body, it speaks to me. The healing process becomes a conversation of sorts. An innate sense helps me find where the root of the issue is and address it specifically to alleviate the issue, not just the symptoms. Soft tissues are anything in the body that aren't bones or joints, not just muscles. SoTiMa is Soft Tissue Manipulation.
Swedish massage employs long gliding strokes with lighter pressure to relax the entire body. However, there is more to it than just relaxation. Blood oxygen levels go up, muscle toxins go down, circulation and flexibility increase as tension melts away.
Fascia is a thin layer of connective tissue that runs throughout our entire bodies and essentially keeps us together. When fascia becomes rigid, it can compress and stick to muscles, making it difficult for us to move or maintain proper posture. By using light, sustained pressure, we can "unstick" the fascia from the muscle and get back to a state of balance.
The deeper pressure of this technique allows us to target chronic muscle tension as well as muscles that are deep or located underneath superficial ones. It can reduce blood pressure, stress and heart rate, while releasing Oxytocin and Serotonin, effectively promoting mood and relaxation.
