With the fast pace of daily life stress is becoming one of the fastest growing medical complaints in the modern world. Pain causes muscles to contract which inhibits circulation, prevents cells from receiving adequate nourishment, and limits movement.

“Stress related disorders make up between 80-and-90 percent of the ailments that bring people to family-practice physicians. What they require is someone to listen, someone to touch them, someone to care. That does not exist in modern medicine. One of the complaints heard frequently is that physicians don't touch their patients any more. Touch just isn't there.

Years ago massage was a big part of nursing. There was so much care, so much touch, so much goodness conveyed through massage. Now nurses for the most part are as busy as physicians. They're writing charts, dealing with insurance notes, they're doing procedures and often there is no room for massage any more. I believe massage therapy is absolutely key in the healing process not only in the hospital environment but because it relieves stress, it is obviously foundational in the healing process any time and anywhere."

Joan Borysenko - Massage Journal Interview, Fall 1999.

Taking time for your body to recover from the stresses and anxiety of daily life is paramount to well being. Worries, tight deadlines and “keeping up the pace” can lead to stress which will eventually make you ineffective.

Massage is one way to relieve these stresses that cause your back, head, neck and shoulders to tense and if left untreated will lead to recurring pain.

My aim is to help you help your body to heal itself through my expert, caring touch which will give you a pain-free life, so you can do the things you enjoy, with freedom, comfort and ease.

Every body is different and each treatment is individually designed just for you.
