Research shows that with massage:
Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain.
Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow.
Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety.
High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.
Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping.
Preterm infants have improved weight gain.Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat postsurgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.
Originally from New York, I am the single co-parent of an active and opinionated toddler boy. I have been interested in healing and helping others ever since I was very young. After the home birth of my son, and while growing into the role of single motherhood, I was able to reconnect with my calling. Currently I enjoy helping busy families, but especially mothers looking to reconnect with themselves. As well as clients dealing with chronic pain. Other activities I enjoy include making DIY home care products, and spending time with my son and our young german shepard training to be a therapy dog. Although I generally listen to mellow music, I can often be found enjoying live music along Sebago Lake in the summer with friends. I service clients in Windham, Maine and in there homes.
