Where do you go to find the stillness of the universe? When do we allow ourselves time to relax and unwind? Recapturing the silence within is essential in regaining the mind/body connection. Massage is one of the few things in this world that truly nourishes both body and soul and requires nothing but a willingness to give and receive.

A life out of balance will catch up with us eventually, and everyone is out of balance. We do generate illness and wellness in our lives. Medical science now knows that the immune system and the nervous system are inexplicably linked. When you experience anger, sadness or fear all your cells feel these emotions, neuropeptides guarantee it. So when you experience stress, your entire system is affected. Massage strips away the stressors of the outer world and puts you in touch with who you really are and helps direct you back in the direction of balance.

A regularly scheduled massage allows you to reset your system, to train your mind and body to return to that sense of balance with greater ease. Massage is not just a luxury but essential in maintaining health of the mind, body and soul. There are many modalities of massage, bodywork and energywork to choose from to help you regain your sense of peace and calm.

Allow your true self to emerge, step into the world as the beautiful creation you were meant to be. Find yourself, get a massage today.
