The holidays are coming...

Holiday time is just around the corner!  I don't know about you, but there are quite a few people on my gift list that are soooo hard to buy for.  If you have someone who is hard to buy for, a gift certificate for a massage might be just the thing.  Everyone loves to feel pampered and taken care of.  A gift of massage can offer some much-needed R&R, pain relief, and stress reduction.

Contact me today to get your gift certificate!

Benefits of Massage

Massage is not just about fancy spas and fluffy robes.  Medical doctors and clinicians have agreed that the physiological, psychological, and therapeutic benefits of massage are many.

Massage can be utilized for pain management, sports-related injuries, reducing chronic neck and back pain, controlling depression and anxiety, reducing stress, and can increase an overall feeling of well-being.  If you receive chiropractic adjustments, it can be used in conjunction with your treatment to optimize results.
Some other benefits of massage:*

- Increases circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.

- Stimulates the flow of lymph, the body's natural defense system, against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.

- Increased circulation of blood and lymph systems improves the condition of the body's largest organ - the skin.

- Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles

- Reduces spasms and cramping

- Increases joint flexibility

- Reduces recovery time, helps prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pains of the athlete at any level

- Releases endorphins - the body's natural painkiller - and is being used in chronic illness, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain

- Reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema and can be used to reduce and realign scar tissue after healing has occurred

- Improves range-of-motion and decreases discomfort for patients with low back pain

- Relieves pain for migraine sufferers and decreases the need for medication

- Provides exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reduces shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion

- Assists with shorter labor for expectant mothers, as well as less need for medication, less depression and anxiety, and shorter hospital stays

$5 off~Wellness Special

For those of you who haven't heard about my newest special....

If you come in and see me for a massage, then you re-book an appointment, I'll knock off $5 for that appointment.  There is no limit to this.  The only catch is you have to actually make the pre-booked appointment in order to get the discount.  

That's just $40 for an hour of bodywork, and all that's required is some forethought and a glance at your future schedule.  Can't really beat it. :) 

Schedule an appointment today!

Sacred Cove's New Blog

Greetings!  I thought I would get on the band-wagon and create a blog for Sacred Cove Massage & Bodywork.  I've done my own blog for some time now, and many of my clients have indicated an interest in having a separate location where they can come and read about the latest goings-on of Sacred Cove.  I listened, and VIOLA!  Here I am!

I will be posting specials, general information about the benefits of massage, and any other interesting tidbits my clients might want to know about.

Thank you for stopping by, and I look forward to soon giving you a much-needed massage!
