Chances are if you are reading this there are areas in your body in which feel like they could use a massage. Poor posture from sitting in chairs at work all week, long commutes on I-4, sleeping incorrectly, slouching while walking around in the hot Florida sun and even hooking your purse or backpack on your shoulder improperly can all cause the muscles to become tense and sore. Not to mention the effects stress has on the body too!

One study found that people who received massage every other week, and especially weekly, all had less stiffness and increased mobility! Bi-weekly massage can help with releasing tension that can make your body ache and it allows better freedom of movement throughout daily tasks and function.

Although massage can sometimes be seen as a luxury, the matter of fact is that massage is actually a powerful form of bodywork therapy that releases toxicity from the body. Think about it, on a daily basis your body comes into contact with so many different chemicals, toxins and stressors that all play a part in seeping into your muscles that result in cramping and stiffness.

Seeing a massage therapist bi-weekly can help to remove these impurities from the muscles to flush them out through bodily waste! TMI… I know, but it’s the truth. The key is to hydrate properly before and after massages.

Another great benefit to bi-weekly massages is that long after stressful situations have passed, our bodies will still hold on to the emotions and trauma. Specific massage techniques can help to relieve these heavier and denser energies, especially paired with aromatherapy or energy work.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs all of our massage therapists can provide you with the specified massage session for you, tailored to what your body AND mind need for that specific day.

Not to mention, when the body is relaxed the mind can therefore be still. Gaining clarity and calming the nervous system is another great benefit from bi-weekly massages. Massage therapy is a great way to maintain overall wellbeing and mental health!

You’ll notice at times during your massage that your mind drifts away into a gentle meditative state and this very sense of ease and relaxation that you are in during the massage can help usher in more peace and tranquility off “the table” in your day to day life.

Know that you can literally dump the garbage and debris of emotional, physical, mental and even spiritual clutter in the massage room and then leave it there… for good!

We are here to help you relax completely. The better we can treat ourselves… the better we can show up for the world around us.

What are you waiting for? Time to set up your bi-weekly massages that are not only stress and pain relieving but also affordable and can be easily maintained with a consistent schedule.

Life happens, we get it, but if you don’t put your health first… no one will.

Time to take the power back into your own hands.

Peace & Wellness.

In this day in age with the access we have to all platforms of Social Media, it’s easy to come across yoga influencers/students/teachers in vibrant yoga pants contouring their bodies in ways that aren’t necessary to receive the healing benefits of yoga.


Try this out, if you are on Instagram search “yoga” or “daily yoga” in the search bar and what do you see? People doing handstands, putting their feet behind their head, and more.

We aren’t here to say that that is wrong or incorrect, but more so that no matter what, it’s going to give off the vibe that in order to be a practitioner of yoga you must be able to meet these standards.

We are here to tell you, that is completely false.

You see, yoga in itself is derived from the Eastern world where the literal meaning behind yoga is “union”. Union of what? Of mind, body and soul.

The intention behind coming to your yoga mat is to shift. Whether you are coming to your yoga mat with previous stress or anxiousness from the day, perhaps you are looking to build strength and endurance not only physically but also mentally – you arrive to the mat with the expectation that you will shift… from one state of being to another.

Yoga is meant to be practiced by everyone. Every body type, every human has the right and ability to practice yoga safely.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we only offer accessible yoga to the students that walk through our doors. We won’t turn you away if you’ve never stepped foot into a yoga class, in fact, we will invite you with open arms.

We provide you a safe place to explore your body, tune in to your feelings and with the help and guidance of your yoga teacher – stress and pain relief will also follow.

So the next time that you come across a famous yoga teacher or influencer on social media, do not assume that that is all there is to yoga!

Let go of the expectations you might already have put on yourself… minimize the negative self talk or doubt that “yoga is too hard” “I’m not flexible enough” “my mind never stops working” “I don’t know if I am ready for yoga” so on and so forth, and begin to replace all of those internal sentences with the words “I am enough.”, “I am complete.”, “I am perfect as I am.” because this is the truth.

If you are ready to incorporate compassionate, accepting, accessible yoga into your life… you have come to the right place.

Check out our website to learn more about the different, gentle and restorative yoga options that we offer! We have everything ranging from Gentle Yoga to Yoga Basics for Beginners, Yin Yoga for Stress Relief and even Yoga Nidra (aka yogic sleep!).

You never regret taking a yoga class, for it is on your mat that you can learn how to integrate all of the lessons into your daily life through breathwork, meditation and mindfulness.

We hope to see you here at Heal. in Altamonte Springs for your first yoga class!

The light in us sees, loves and supports that light you have within you.

Namaste!
