In an attempt to satisfy my overwhelming maternal nature, I have found that massage is the perfect outlet for that energy. I truly enjoy the happiness in my day, and relate to the quote: “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” To me, that is massage, an opportunity to bring, joy, relief, relaxation, a moment of peace, a feeling of happiness in a day, or life, where it may not otherwise feel so.

We all know that stress is bad for us, it triggers cortisol, and a myriad of other issues. How do we combat stress/cortisol?

“Forget the cheap, generic Thai massage and the meaningless tease of the chiropractic “freebie.” Put your money where Alice’s fingers are. Alice spotted my pain points as soon as I walked in the door. My shoulders and neck were seized with tension, and she knew just what to do. With her strong – okay, amazing! – fingers and anatomical knowledge, she went after the causes of my distress.”
Very different from deep tissue, but exactly what I needed. Muscles that have been tight for so long they’d forgotten what normal is. Stress releases in places I hadn’t realized I was holding stress. James is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, but communicate well because myofacial requires you to relax. I have discovered that fully relaxing takes a lot of my concentration. tmi, but this may be true for others. I recommend at least three visits to fully appreciate this type of massage.
