Nurture ... - Therapeutic Massage and Yoga

Please note that as of December, 2015, I was, out of the blue, offered a half-time position with Allegan County Community Mental Health, where I've been teaching Yoga for the past 2 years.  This work is most likely going to grow into a full-time position by Spring of 2016.  For this reason, I need to restrict my massage and Yoga teaching availability to Friday through Sunday, and I am not actively seeking new clients.  If you are a current massage client, or if you have a gift certificate you'd like to redeem, please feel free to call me to schedule a weekend appointment. 

i have recently (finally!!!), completed my 200-hour Yoga Alliance registration. I *may* make myself available to teach a Yoga class or two, also on the weekends, if I can find a committed group of students to participate.  If you are interested in making a commitment to participating in an ongoing class, please call me!  I am moving much more in the direction of Yoga, and movement practices in my career at this point.

 The Benefits of Relaxation through Therapeutic Massage or Yoga
Research shows that both therapeutic massage and Yoga-practice create a relaxation response which enhances the way your immune system works.  When your body is stressed, it creates stress hormones which have an irritating effect on the immune system. The immune system will automatically mobilize to fight the chronic irritation caused by these elevated stress hormone levels; this weakens you body's overall ability to fight disease. When your body is more relaxed, you have lower levels of stress hormones and your immune system doesn't have to put so much energy into fighting that irritation. Both therapeutic massage and Yoga practice increase chemicals in the brain that create feelings of well-being, and reduce the production of stress hormones.This lightens the workload on the immune system, freeing it to deal more efficiently and rapidly with factors outside yourself (bacteria or viruses you might come into contact with, for example) that might cause your body to break down or get sick.
In addition, both therapeutic massage and Yoga-practice:
  •  Increase circulation in the muscles
  •  Give you greater ease of motion
  •  Diminish chronic pain
  •  Help balance your nervous system
  •  Increase your ability to concentrate
  •  Make you feel GREAT!
