Breathing is essential to life. It is the elixir of life. Every breath you take permeates the body with life-sustaining oxygen that fuels our minds and bodies. An adequate oxygen supply keeps our minds alert, our cells repair and rejuvenation, and our muscles working for longer periods of time, without tiring.
Asian and other cultures believe that the air is infused with a life-sustaining energy of its own. However we look at it, breathing is essential. We teach breathing techniques to be used in the massage and reflexology sessions when our clients want to add this extra dimension to their experience.
This jewel of health infuses the body with life-enriching oxygen and energy, lubricates the joints, and removes blockages to allow energy to flow evenly throughout the body.
Massage and Reflexology treatments often include gentle stretches to loosen tight muscles and improve flexibility and range of motion. This is an enjoyable and gentle way to regain mobility following periods of inactivity (long work periods, travel, illness, and more).
Each Stage of Life
Bodywork (massage, reflexology) is beneficial at each phase of life — pregnancy, infant, children, teens, adults, eldercare, and hospice.
