Massage: It Does the Body Good!

What’s not to like about getting a massage at Nature’s Touch? A quiet room offering calm, peace and privacy. Your eyes are closed, your body is lying relaxed and comfortable on a heated table under warm sheets and blankets. Your sore muscles are being kneaded and soothed by trained, caring hands. For thousands of years some form of massage or laying on of hands has been used to heal the sick and relieve pain. Its benefits are countless and scientific research has proven that massage is medicine.

The skilled staff at Nature’s Touch offers Massage sessions designed to your specific needs and goals. If you are having pain in certain areas, you will receive a massage with medium to deep pressure giving extra attention to problem areas, with various types of learned techniques specific to your needs. Perhaps you just need to be relaxed. Your massage will be given with light to medium pressure for general relaxation to improve circulation and release the tension from your body. If you’re an athlete or a weekend warrior, strenuous exercise can leave muscles feeling fatigued, stiff and sore. Sports Massage stretches and lengthens shortened muscles, and reduces spasms. A pre-event massage is brief and invigorating with strokes used to warm and energize only the muscles used in that particular sport. Post-event massage after you’ve cooled down will reduce pain and soreness felt in the muscle groups used, as well as flush out metabolic waste products that build up during heavy muscle use.

We also offer Steam Therapy treatments right on the massage table. Lying prone while steaming allows the heart to work most efficiently by keeping the blood flow even throughout the body. The combination of massage and steam is simply unbeatable. Muscle soreness and tension just melt away.

Another holistic treatment offered at Nature’s Touch is Reflexology, a non-invasive treatment performed on the feet and hands. This treatment uses thumb and finger pressure of varying degrees, focusing on areas of the feet that correspond with all body parts. The pressure applied during reflexology stimulates the movement of energy along the pathways. Reflexology will benefit clients by promoting natural healing of body, mind and spirit. It can ease pain, reduce stress, improve circulation, stimulate the nervous system, uplift your spirit, balance and energize you.

Several therapists at Nature’s Touch are trained and attuned to Reiki. Reiki is an ancient Tibetan form of natural healing which is administered by the “laying on of hands” to help restore imbalances of energy in our bodies due to physical or emotional blockages. Reiki increases energy, accelerates healing, calms the mind and stimulates spiritual awareness. You will feel a warmth from the Reiki practitioner’s hands, and a general feeling of well-being.

From infants to teenagers, athletes to grandparents, Massage, Reflexology and Reiki offer a natural way to heal from stress and injury. Unlock your body’s natural healing capabilities by including regular treatments as part of your personal health and fitness plan.
