Pain is no fun and can be so very frustrating when it limits your daily activities. There is no need to suffer through it, regular massage and acupuncture can help you become pain free or at the very least make you feel much better!
How can regular Massage and Acupuncture treatments help you feel your best?
let me count the ways…
Regular massage and acupuncture treatments will help you work through the many layers of tension and bound muscle tissue created by unbalanced movement patterns
An occasional one hour massage cannot possibly address the many places of restriction and pain you likely have built up over the years, having regular massage and acupuncture treatments will allow you and your therapist to make a treatment plan to help you become truly pain free.
Your therapist (or team of therapist’s) will get to know your body and can better address your specific needs.
You will most likely feel less stressed from taking better care of yourself and having something so wonderful to look forward to every week/month!
By committing to your health through regular massage and acupuncture treatments you will be taking a proactive approach in living a long, healthy and free from chronic pain existence.

3 ways to live a healthier and happier life in 2014
I always slack a little on most of my routines (outside of hammock laying and beach going) through the Summer, we get such a short visit from the sun here in Portland that I feel justified in my laziness. But It’s back to school time here in Oregon and I know that, like myself, many of you parents out there are ready to get back to the grind. When the kids go back to school it becomes easier for us to get back on top of work, exercise, healthy eating habits and in general taking care of ourselves. If you want to make a huge positive impact on your health and happiness you should try adding regular massage into your self care routine, you won’t believe what a difference it will make! Still not sure? Check out these great facts about the many ways regular massage can improve your overall well-being:
Find Relief from pain:
Millions of Americans suffer from pain and back pain seems to be the leader of the pack, in fact, low back pain is one of the most common reasons for missing work. In fact, back pain is one of the most listed reasons for visits to the doctor’s office. Treat low back pain with a combination of stretching, exercises and getting regular massage, acupuncture and/or chiropractic care. It is important to remember that surgery or pharmaceuticals are not the only option for finding freedom from pain. Many times with a little energy and regular self care you can live a happier and healthier life without the extra side effects that come with invasive surgery or drugs.
Free yourself from Stress and Anxiety:
The world is always changing, moving more quickly, raising it’s expectations-heaping more and more onto our plates. It is no wonder that many Americans are frequently suffering from bouts of depression, anxiety and insomnia. Stress is a killer and if left unregulated it can cause all sorts of issues in the body. Dr. Sheldon Cohen discovered in a 2012 study that “When under stress, cells of the immune system are unable to respond to hormonal control, and consequently, produce levels of inflammation that promote disease. Because inflammation plays a role in many diseases such as cardiovascular, asthma and autoimmune disorders, this model suggests why stress impacts them as well.” Help yourself regulate stress hormones with massage. Regular massage reduces the hormone cortisol in your body, and give the happiness inducing neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine a boost. Check out our buy 3 get 1 free massage packages and $55 monthly membership to get yourself on the path to freedom from stress today!
Look better, feel better and have more energy:
Speaking of stress, we all know it takes a toll on our energy levels as well as our appearance. Weight gain or loss, dark bags under our eyes, dull skin and exhaustion are all common side effects of stress. Massage can help these too by reducing stress levels and helping to boost your bodies natural healing abilities. Massage also improves circulation and skin tone to promote that beautiful healthy glow we are all striving to achieve.
