Massage for Pain Relief, Stress Reduction, Anxiety and Depression
Massage is a very effective technique for relieving pain. How does it work? There are number of ways massage may help in relieving pain.
Massage confuses the body’s pain signals.
Rubbing may interfere with pain signals’ pathways to your brain, a process called the “gate control theory,” according to experts. Pain impulses run toward the spinal cord and then up the cord and into the brain. It’s only when they reach the brain that these impulses, are perceived as pain. When you rub, it sends other impulses along the same nerves. When all these impulses try to reach the brain through nerves, the nerves get clogged like a highway during morning rush hour. The result? Most of them won’t reach the brain. And if the pain signals does not reach the brain, you won’t feel pain. Thus massage works by ‘closing the gate’ that pain impulses have to pass through.
Massage also calls up the body’s natural painkillers.
It stimulates the release of endorphins, the morphine-like substances that the body manufactures, into the brain and nervous system.
Massage provides deep relaxation
It relieves muscle tension, spasm, and stiffness. All of these contribute to pain. Experts suggest that tense muscles are usually deprived of oxygen, because the tightness reduces blood circulation to the area. Massage improves blood circulation, bringing with it what the muscle needs-oxygen and other forms of nourishment. The muscle then relaxes, and pain decreases.
Massage relieves mental stress, physical stress, anxiety…even depression.
Massage is providing the benefit by the therapeutic value of touching that helps a person in pain. Research shows that even touch lasting for less than 1 second has the ability to make people feel better. Obviously, an hour-long touch provided by massage has to make you feel good!
How is pregnancy massage different from regular massage?
The mother’s body must be properly positioned and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding. Proper positioning ensures comfort and safety for the mother and baby.
Also, some massage techniques, such as deep tissue work, cannot be used. Certain areas of the body should be avoided during pregnancy.
What are the benefits of pregnancy massage?
Pregnancy massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints.
It’s a popular complementary therapy during pregnancy for back pain, when choices for pain relief, such as medication, are often limited.
Not only can prenatal massage be physically beneficial, but the human touch can be comforting and provide emotional support during pregnancy.
Massage therapy has been found to reduce anxiety and depression.
What is Chinese Herbal Therapy?
Over the past 5,000 years, Chinese herbology has evolved into an art form of its own. Ancient herbal information was gathered, compiled, formulated, tested, and handed down from generation to generation. Today, practitioners of Chinese medicine continue to prescribe herbal formulas because they are a powerful therapeutic method.

What is Reiki? Pronounced “Ray-key”
Reiki is not a massage therapy. It is a “hands-on” healing, which is considered as one of the most ancient healing techniques in Asia. It is the tradition that the ancient Japanese treated injuries and illness with a touch of hands.
The Reiki practitioner applies gentle hand touch on a receiver’s clothed body. Reiki is a technique of transmitting the universal life energy to the receiver through the practitioner. The practitioner acts as a channel of the universal life energy to the receiver. The receiver will usually feel warmth and sensation over the area where the practitioner’s hands are laid.
Reiki is a pleasant, holistic method of healing and safe for any individuals.
The result of Reiki practice varies from person to person, depending on other internal and external factors, including receiver’s conditions, symptoms, openness and sensitivity to the universal energy. Receivers respond to Reiki differently, yet it is common that they often experience sensations (such as heat, cold, vibration, tingling or heaviness) and
experience the sense of peacefulness, joy and happiness. It is also common that hidden or suppressed emotions from the past come to let go. This is a completely normal, healthy response during the healing process.
What Reiki can do for you…
Reiki may be done alone or in combination with other healing modalities such as Acupuncture, and Massage Therapy. Reiki can also be done with multiple therapists during a session. This enhances the energetic flow and can aid in the healing process.
We use our skills and knowledge to facilitate healing for our clients. Our goal is to help you to return to a state of complete well-being. Many people experience deep relaxation, a sense of inner peace and joyfulness and rejuvenation after Reiki treatments. Our treatments are not focused only on your symptoms, but encompass the whole person. Healing occurs on many levels such as physically, emotionally as well as spiritually. The “receiver” of Reiki (or any of the healing arts) is always in complete control of the healing process and will only receive what he/she is open and willing to receive.
