Touch is one of our earliest forms of healing.  It is a basic life necessity – a basic knead, so to speak.  Touch is the first sense to develop in humans and usually the last to fade – an indicator of how important touch is to sustaining life.  Our skin is sensory mapped to our brains to deliver healing hormones+ upon receiving directed, healing touch.

I use all organic oils and lotions, as well as, organic CBD balms and salves infused with healing essential oils and herbals. Also, low level light therapy (red and yellow infrared spectrums) to aid and facilitate healing from the inside as well.

Healing touch therapies can increase feelings of well-being and reduce pain, lift depression, bolster immune function, reduce job stress.  We instinctively touch those in need of care.  A player puts their arm around their teammate after a goal or a parent instinctively holds, blows on or kisses their child’s injured knee.

Massage studies suggest that therapeutic touch can do a lot….re-establish correct nerve flow in damaged, fatigued or injured areas, return muscle fibers to their normal resting length for recovery, eliminate adhesions, improve range of motion (joint function),  promote deeper breathing, aid digestion, decrease edema, decrease anxiety, aid insomnia, decrease migraine frequency & duration, decrease fibromyalgia pain and lessen arthritis pain.

But life and our bodies don’t fit neatly into clinical studies…they can, however, fit neatly into the hands of an informed, educated and skilled therapist with a deeply healing intent.
