Don’t let residual pain slow you down

Have you ever had an injury or surgery that left you with residual pain, even months afterwards? If so, I can provide relief.
When muscle is torn or cut, the body defends the injured tissue by attaching it to surrounding structures to limit the extent of the injury. However helpful and logical this response is, it doesn’t automatically heal the injury.
By nature, your body does a great job of repairing the original damage but there are often adhesions (stuck places) left behind. These adhesions can cause pain and limited range of movement not only in the immediate area of injury but also in other parts of the body that might not seem related to the injury.
Unfortunately, you can’t just stretch these places out and consider that all is well. The best way to release adhesions and start feeling better is by fairly deep, therapeutically focused massage.
I do this type of massage regularly, often with very good results. By communicating with your physician and/or physical therapist, I can create a massage designed specifically to relieve pain and improve range of movement. Once the muscles and adhesions are loosened, it’s up to you as my client to keep these areas moving properly with stretches and exercises I will provide.
Of course, not every injury can be resolved in this manner but I can make significant improvements in how your body responds and how you feel. I would love to help YOU feel better in 2017!

Massage, A Thoughtful Gift

Along with all your Winter Holiday preparations, make sure you allow time for regular massage for yourself during this busy season. Our bodies need caring and unconditional touch and massage gives us the chance to sink into that healthful place where we are relaxed yet aware, a place where time flies and the body can finally rest. What a gift to yourself! You are worth the gift of time and relaxation.

New for this year, I have gift cards so you can choose the dollar amount you wish to give! A gift card can be put towards a relaxing hot stones massage or a luxurious aromatic salt scrub to relieve dry skin, both perfect for winter weather. And, for the shy or reserved person, CranioSacral therapy is very gentle, profoundly relaxing and is given with the client fully clothed.

Small enough to keep in a wallet, gift cards are a convenient way to give a useful, indulgent and thoughtful gift for friends and family. And, since you can add to the balance on the card, they can be a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year.

The Holidays are a wonderful time to gift others who would not normally receive massage so don’t forget about your house cleaner or handyman, hairdresser or mechanic, volunteers whom you know, or others who you admire for their altruism. A gift card towards a massage is an ideal way to recognize and thank your service providers.

Since gift cards are a new medium for me, I am offering 15 extra minutes on your next massage when you purchase a Body Dialog Massage gift card before the end of 2016. Gift cards are available to purchase at my office on Jordan Road.
