Massage Therapy Blue Updated 8012011

  1. 1. Massage Therapy<br />Presented by <br />Healing Touch Massage Therapy Clinic<br />"Empowering People to Take Control of Their Own Health." Through Healthy Touch.<br />
  2. 2. Wellness and Massage<br />The idea of wellness simply puts the responsibility of your health back into your hands - where it belongs. You are responsible for making very basic decisions for your long-term health care. <br />
  3. 3. The good thing about massage is it’s simplicity - you don't have to do anything and you still get a wonderful benefit. <br />Well ok, you do have to make the appointment and show up - but I do the work - you reap the benefits. <br />What better way to help you stay healthy?<br />
  4. 4. Who Can Benefit From Massage Therapy?<br />Everyone can! People from all walks of life.<br />That is the beauty of massage, it can be tailored to each individuals needs.<br />
  5. 5. Benefits of Massage Therapy <br />Muscular system<br />Circulatory system<br />Digestive system<br />Lymphatic system<br />Integumentary system<br />Nervous system<br />
  6. 6. Muscular System<br />Relaxes tight, contracted muscles. <br />Helps remove toxins from muscles.<br />Restores memory to over worked, shortened muscles.<br />
  7. 7. Circulatory System<br /> Massage therapy releases contracted muscles and pushes venous blood towards the heart, easing the strain on the heart. This also helps bring nutrients to the cells and carries away metabolic waste products that can make you feel listless and drained. And regular massage can help to normalize your blood pressure.<br />
  8. 8. Digestive System<br /> Increases peristalsis (abdominal massage).<br /> Enabling your digestive system to work more efficiently.<br />
  9. 9. Lymphatic System <br />Increases blood circulation.<br />Increases lymph flow, the metabolic waste from your cells to cleanse your muscles and organs of the natural by-product of daily living. This helps to ward off infection and heal injuries.<br />
  10. 10. Integumentary System (Skin)<br />Improves skin tone.<br />Reduces scarring.<br />Reduces swelling of injured tissues.<br /> Skin is the largest organ in the body and the most abused.<br />
  11. 11. Nervous System<br /> Contracted muscles can press on or pinch your nerves causing tingling, numbness, or pain. Massage therapy relaxes these contracted muscles to relieve the compression on your nerves. Sensory receptors in the skin and muscles "wake up" bringing new awareness to areas that have felt "cut off" by chronic tension patterns.<br />
  12. 12. Regular massage will help you to maintain a more healthy body, and reduces the stress that most people have in their lives, and that is what wellness is all about.<br />
  13. 13. Massage reduces stress, just ask anyone who has enjoyed a massage. They will tell you that they left feeling relaxed and refreshed. To get the most benefit from massage you should have one on a regular basis. For those of you who are regular with massage (at least once per month) I congratulate you, for those who aren't - I encourage you to take an active role in you health and start now by signing up to get your next massage today.<br />
  14. 14. “When health is absent,<br /> Wisdom cannot reveal itself;<br /> Art cannot become manifest;<br /> Strength cannot be exerted;<br /> Wealth is useless,<br /> And reason is powerless.<br /> -----Herophiles.<br />
  15. 15. How Often Should I Get a Massage?<br />I recommend at least once a month for general health benefits. If you wait much longer than that you will not get as much accumulative benefit from it: each visit builds on the one before. For injuries I will recommend more frequent visits tailored to your individual situation.<br />You can come as often as you want – weekly, bi-weekly, monthly.<br />
