Massage Therapy at the Vista Natural Wellness Center!
No longer considered a luxury, massage is therapy; it facilitates the body’s natural ability of self-healing and propensity for balance. Most clients seek massage therapy for pain and stress reduction. Sore, tight and aching muscles are usually a result of repetitive movement patterns, postural misalignments, injury, illness and emotional stress. Our massage therapist’s approach addresses these concerns by including a combination of therapeutic techniques to promote relaxation, pain reduction and soft tissue release tailoring every session to the needs of the client.
Other benefits include:
- Improved blood circulation
- More oxygen to the body
- Stress reduction
- Increased strength and flexibility
- Improved sleeping patterns
- Therapeutic Deep Tissue
- Lymphatic Drainage
- Special Massage for Oncology Patients
Oncology Massage can be a beneficial adjunctive therapy for people affected with cancer including those in active treatment. Multiple recent studies link gentle oncology massage with significant reductions in pain, fatigue, nausea, depression, and anxiety. Study after study reports improvements in some or all of these symptoms following massage.
Having cancer can be one of life’s most stressful experiences. For most people, massage is an immediate antidote to stress, pain and discomfort. The relaxing and rejuvenating effects of massage shift people away from the stress response which tenses muscles and inhibits digestion, to the relaxation response which enables the body’s self-healing resources to be fully available.
The National Cancer Institute recently uncovered that Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) is often one reason why cancer patients stop treatment early. Fortunately, researchers recently reported at an Oncology Symposium that massage therapy can ease symptoms of CIPN, as well as improve one’s quality of life.
Oncology massage is comfort based with a gentle touch tailored to each individual’s needs. It can be received fully clothed. It is relaxing, restorative and nourishing for the mind, body and spirit.
