“Ouch!” You reach for the pain, you hold the injury, you press right at the heart of where
the pain comes from, little did you know you were replicating a massage therapist’s humble beginnings. Did you know the definition of massage is to “rub?” When
something is painful our natural instinct is to grab it, squeeze it, or “rub” it.
Massage Therapy has become an evolved form and practice of our body’s natural instinct to heal itself or maintain
the healthy state in which it began.
Massage is Born…
The Diversity & History of Massage Therapy
conjures certain key phrases such as healing of the “mind, body & spirit.”
The history of massage defines this statement. Massage pioneers' backgrounds
vary from scientific, psychoanalytic and practical circumstances which indicate the richness and totality of Massage Therapy. Some of those pioneers include psychoanalyst, Wilhelm Reich, (a clinical assistant
to the famous Sigmund Freud for six years), who founded psychotherapeutic body techniques, Dr. Johann Mezger of Holland who
introduced massage to the scientific community as a form of medical treatment, and Per Henrik Ling, a fencing teacher who
is credited with the development of what we now know today as the Swedish Massage. Although
Ling’s system was borrowed from the Turks, Ling was Swedish, hence the name “Swedish Massage.”

Finding Peace Through Massage Therapy
peace and flow within our everyday life can sometimes feel challenging. Massage
addresses the connection between the emotional, mental and physical. In fact
the 5 strokes of Swedish Massage literally work on what is known as “connective” tissue. This tissue is most abundant in our bodies and serves to support many of the systems in our body which
fight off disease and/or help to maintain a healthy state – the Lymphatic System, the Endocrine System and the Nervous
System are some examples.
Draping & Client Safety
We provide you
with comfort and a safe environment for healing by using a technique called Draping.
Although a client is unclothed he/she lies under a sheet and blanket on a table so that as the technique takes place all private
body parts are unexposed. With soft lighting, lubrication (e.g., oils, cremes,
etc.) and music to enhance a relaxed state, and through the technique of proper draping, quality of touch and an intention
of healing the client is able to get the most out of their experience.
