Did you know that low back pain is one of the top reasons people seek medical attention in the U.S.? It is a tough to treat. Studies have shown that very few medical therapies ranging from medications to injections to surgeries can reliably relieve it… where as some can even aggravate the problem even worse.

Lower back pain can be described in two ways: a dull constant ache or severe and sudden sharp pain that can leave the individual incapacitated, unable to stand or sit. The lower back is the region where most individuals feel the most pain. There are several causes of lower back pain which include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Herniated or ruptured disks
  • Inter-vertebral disc degeneration
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Traumatic injury to the back
  • And more

Lower back pain is the leading cause of job disability in the world. About one in ten people have it, and for many who develop back pain, the condition becomes chronic.

According to the American Massage Therapy Association, research shows that massage therapy provides several important low back pain relieving benefits, including:

  • Improved blood circulation; massage allows energy to begin to flow freely throughout the body, in return aiding in blood circulation and getting nutrient-rich blood to any stagnant areas located in the lower back.
  • Relaxed low back muscles for an improved range of motion.
  • Increased endorphin levels. The increase of endorphin levels is actually one of the greatest benefits of massage therapy. Endorphins are the chemicals the body produces that make you feel good, which is very effective in managing chronic pain.

At Heal., we have highly trained and intuitive massage therapists that can help you to reduce low back pain. Our therapists all specialize in different forms of massage such as Swedish, deep tissue, therapeutic and even Thai massage and cranial-sacral.

Not sure which massage would suit you best? Give us a call and we can help you find the right fit!

Another powerful low back pain relieving remedy is… *drumroll please* CBD!

Kat’s Natural’s CBD cream and sublingual oils have been proven to help with chronic joint pain! At Heal. we are also able to infuse CBD cream into your massage for an anti-inflammatory response, ultimate relaxation and overall deeper healing.

CBD works directly with your own internal endocannabinoid system! This endocannabinoid system is responsible for your mood, appetite, memory, sleep function, pain, motor function and more. When your endocannabinoid system is out of balance, the rest of your body can experience far reaching negative effects!

It’s no surprise that with a regular dosing of CBD, your body begins to tap into a state of balance which in return promotes stress relief, chronic pain begins to subside, better sleep, quicker healing and so much more.

At Heal. in Altamonte Springs, we carry a wide variety of different ways to incorporate CBD into your daily life. Not only do we carry sublingual CBD tinctures that are easily taken underneath the tongue for optimum healing, we also carry CBD creams and even chocolates for you to begin to implement into your self-care routine.

Our bodies are made to receive the healing benefits that are derived from CBD, and that fussy low back pain can be relieved using CBD!

Give us a call to learn more about CBD and it’s wide assortment of pain relieving benefits today! 407-300-5364

Lastly, while we are on the topic of CBD oil, there are also a wide array of essential oils that can promote relief in the pain experienced in the low back (and really anywhere in the body!)

Essential oils are highly concentrated and potent substances and so they are advised to be used in small amounts and only after diluting them properly.

Analgesic properties make them excellent pain relievers. Essential oils such as peppermint and wintergreen provide cooling pain relief while ginger, thyme and black pepper give warming relief.


Essential oils are also powerful anti-inflammatory agents. Inflammation is a root cause of pain so reducing inflammation is a key treatment for relieving chronic pain.

Other essential oils carry stimulant properties that help increase blood circulation to the painful area, which enables nutrient-rich blood to flow to the area and nourish it. Like previously mentioned earlier, certain essential oils paired with massage can most certainly provide nourishment to any areas in the body suffering of chronic pain.

Essential oils also carry relieving properties! Stress can lead to body aches and pains including lower back pain. Inhaling essential oils and applying them topically have been proven to have therapeutic stress relieving properties.

These 6 essential oils all provide some type of soothing relief, numbing, warming or cooling that when combined in certain methods can provide relief during bouts of chronic back pain:

  1. Ginger
  2. Black Pepper
  3. Vetiver
  4. Sweet Marjoram
  5. Peppermint
  6. Thyme

Ask us at your next massage to incorporate any of these essential oils into your massage, especially if the goal is to relieve low back pain!

If you are interested in learning more about different ways to pair these pain relieving essential oils, send us an email over at info@heal407.com and we will send you a special recipe! This essential oil recipe can be used with self massage as well.

Until next time,

All the heals.

Needleless acupuncture is used to create balance within the patterns of energy in the human body.


When there is a disruption, certain vital organs and systems receive too much energy, while others do not get enough.


This imbalance can cause different health issues and conditions and that is why modern medicine is looking at acupuncture as a reliable form of treatment.
Acupuncture restores balance to the body, enabling it to heal itself and function as it should. It builds resistance to illness and diseases in the body, and provides a higher state of health and well-being.

MPS Therapy uses devices called the Dolphin that uses micro currents in the body to promote the nervous system to tap into the parasympathetic state, the state in which your body is able to rest and digest! This current is also recognizable by our body allowing the system to work at a cellular level helping to heal and repair scar tissue, nerve interference and stagnant Qi .


Here are some of the many benefits of MPS Therapy (Aka needless acupuncture which is a service provided at Heal. in Altamonte Springs):

  • Relief from insomnia or sleep disturbances caused by mental health issues or medication
  • Clearing of scar tissue aiding in better mobility throughout the body
  • Great for muscular and neurological disorders such as headaches, chest pain, facial tics, neck pain, frozen shoulder, tendinitis, tennis elbow, lower back pain, osteoarthritis, sciatica, and more
  • Relief from digestive disorders such as hyper-acidity, constipation, spastic colon, diarrhea, gastritis, etc.
  • Treatment for disorders of the respiratory system including sinusitis, bronchitis, asthma, sore throat, recurrent chest infections
  • Treatment for urinary, menstrual, and reproductive issues
  • Better concentration, short-term memory retention, and decisiveness
  • Reduced headaches and ringing in the ears
  • Reduced pain in the face, ears, and jaw when yawning or chewing

This therapy is safe to use on all ages, body types and provide relief to where you need it in the body. Excited to try this out for yourself? Give us a call at 407-300-5364 to get more information or to schedule your first MPS Therapy session with us at Heal. in Altamonte Springs!

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.

Do you toss and turn at night wondering why you can’t just turn off your restless mind and ease your restless body?

Do you wake up halfway through the night with anxious thoughts racing through your mind?

Are there days where although you slept 8+ hours, you feel like you only slept for 2?

If you answered “yes” to any or all of the questions above, we are here to let you know that your sleep does not have to suffer anymore.

Sleep is so important as it is where our body heals, restores and digests.

We are here to share with you 3 ways in which you can improve sleep naturally!

At Heal. we love to hear when people tell us that they had restful sleep after taking a yoga class or having a massage! It’s like music to our ears.

Our intention is simple – Heal.

Let’s start by talking about Yoga.

How can yoga correlate with better sleep?

In yoga, we work directly with our breath to facilitate energetic flow throughout our bodies, also known as Prana.

Pranayama, or the conscious awareness of breath, is what separates yoga from any other type of physical exercise.

This breath paired with gentle movements to allow energy to flow freely through the body is what will help dissolve stress or tension hidden in your body that you may not even know you had. Releasing excess energy in this healthy and mindful way is what can help alleviate insomnia, and aid in deeper sleep.

You’ll notice after performing even just a 10 to 15 minute yoga sequence that focuses on hips, low back and the upper chest and heart area – that your sleep will be much more sound, deep and restorative.

At Heal. we offer Yin Yoga classes as well as Yoga Nidra classes which help aid in grounding the nervous system to help flow into that “rest and digest” mode as opposed to being in “fight or flight” mode. These are gentle forms of yoga that bring true relaxation to the mind and body that can in return lead to plentiful sleep.

How does massage help with better sleep?

Aside from feeling your very best after a deep relaxation massage, you can also expect your night’s sleep to be sound and still.

Massage is an all-natural and soothing healing treatment that helps the body fall asleep and stay asleep for longer periods of time. If the reason in which you have trouble sleeping is pain related – massage is a great therapy to help relieve pain in the body.

Getting a massage booked in the evening is a great way to allow the relaxing and peaceful feelings to be carried over into bed time.

Massage therapy boosts serotonin levels which means that as the precursor to melatonin, this “happy hormone” increase will play a direct role in your sleep cycles. More serotonin, better sleepy!

Whats the hype about Essential Oils? Can they truly help with sleep?

Our answer is YES.

Essential oils are very powerful in helping to soothe and ground the central nervous system. Click here to read more about Essential Oils and emotions!

Lavender, clary sage, frankincense, roman chamomile and more are great essential oil’s to use at bedtime. These oils have been proven to slow down the heart rate, lower blood pressure and put the nervous system into a parasympathetic state aka “rest and digest” mode, where true healing from the inside out can occur.

At Heal. we have the ability to incorporate CBD Cream into your massage that helps to reduce inflammation in the body, soothing to the skin and pain relieving! Sustainably harvested Lavender, Frankincense and Lemongrass essential oils all play a part in this organic CBD cream.

This blend of oils accompanied by arnica oil and CBD… it’s a great excuse to rub yourself down with some oil before bedtime! You’ll be lulled into a deep restorative sleep, allowing the body and mind to become so still that you’re able to hit and stay in REM throughout the night.

If this seems like something you would be interested in, let us know for your next massage at Heal. that you would like to incorporate some CBD goodness!

There you have it folks, 3 ways to naturally improve sleep.

Yoga, massage and essential oils.

If you are interested in learning more about either healing therapy – please don’t hesitate to reach us at Heal. in Altamonte Springs.

We are located off of 436 close to Ronald Reagan.

Or give us a call at 407-300-5364 for any questions.

We wish you soothing sleep and restful days.

At one point or another in life we start to disconnect from ourselves and end up feeling lost or unsure of what our next steps in life are. Sometimes.. most times.. the best thing someone can do during these points in life is to completely press pause, slow down and go on a vacation or retreat as a way to reset life. Retreats are relaxing and rejuvenating not only to the mind but the body as well. You begin to come out of your day to day schedule and through a yoga retreat — begin to incorporate more self-care into your life.

Look, you can only go at 100 miles an hour/ 7 days a week/ with little to no rest in between your responsibilities for so long before coming to a complete stop and burn out. A soulful getaway is the perfect way to re-energize your body, mind and soul while connecting back to your inner self.

Yoga retreats take you away from the hustle and bustle of life and give you the opportunity to spend time with YOU! You never regret going on a yoga retreat – I can tell you that much… which is why we want to share with you FIVE reasons why you deserve to go on a yoga retreat as soon as possible!

1.You get to JUST BE.

When we are faced with having to put on different hats for prolonged periods of time we tend to lose who we are at our core. Taking care of yourself is so important in life as is the ability to love yourself unconditionally throughout highs and lows, ups and downs. As we get caught up in the life around us we often times forget to take out time for Self Care. With the help of a yoga retreat you can finally devote time to yourself, your needs, your mental and physical health. You can finally let go and be the You you always craved to be!

A nourishing escape from the outside world, a relaxing yoga retreat or getaway is a sure way to bring all of your attention towards self-discovery, self-acceptance, self-exploration and most importantly self-compassion!

No family obligations to tend to, no work, noTHING to do… nowhere to go… no one to be but just YOU.

2. You grow into your self-care practice.

Let’s face it, we were never taught how to take care of ourselves. We were never taught how to put ourselves first. We’ve always put others before us and in return we are left feeling empty, tired, maybe even resentful at times. You’ll notice right away that when you embark on a yoga retreat of any kind that the intention behind coming together for a weekend getaway is so that we can learn how to take care of ourselves! It’ll become such a routine and habit to wake up, move your body, eat nourishing meals throughout the day, rest as needed, meditate and breathe, that you’ll begin to wonder why you never implemented this into your daily life before!

3. You make new friends and enjoy new experiences.

A yoga retreat is packed with a lot of fun as well. It gives you a chance to meet new like-minded people and explore new places. We all have an inner wanderer within us and going on a yoga retreat adventure will be an all encompassing exploration of cultivating friendships, connection, serenity and bliss!

4. You adapt into a Healthier Lifestyle!

Yoga is a disciplinary practice and at a yoga retreat or at yoga teacher training, the practitioners learn to live a disciplined and a better quality life. At yoga retreat, you do all the work on time and as per schedule from eating meals to sleeping to exercising, to relaxing, or to doing other activities. These good habits we tend to indulge in our normal lives and make our lifestyle and living better and healthier.

In today’s time, most of the health issues we face are lifestyle-based. On a yoga retreat you change your lifestyle for those days or weeks you are on a goodness getaway as you learn to eat mindfully, while indulging in eating a vegetarian, vegan and overall high nutrition diet for better health. Not only that, but you’ll also detox from social media, your electronic devices and dive deeper into mindful living – day after day.

5. You can let go and start anew.

A yoga retreat is not only about rejuvenation, it is also the opportunity to have a soulful get away from your daily life, work, family, deadlines, and responsibilities. During yoga retreats you will notice a clearer mind, balanced emotions, and overall improved wellbeing!

You learn the art of living in the present moment. When you unwind and reset, by staying away from your home, you start appreciating and embracing your relationships. Not only this, yoga retreats give you a new perspective on life and new eyes to see the world. You gain a more positive outlook and start seeing the good in people and surroundings. With this awareness and realization, you develop the ability to let go of the past and kick-start your life!

Experience the inner-tranquility that you deserve. It’s time you take your wellbeing and health back into your own hands and we believe a yoga retreat can be that positive reset you have been looking for!

We would love to invite you to a Beach Relaxation Retreat at the healing beach of Siesta Key coming this July. From the 12th to the 15th experience all of the greatness touched on above and so much more.

Click here to learn more about this energetic reset retreat and for more information.

Never been on a retreat before? No problem, we are here for you with any questions you may have.

Just give us a call at 407-300-5364 and we will take care of you!

There are only a few spots available so don’t hesitate – don’t forget… you never regret going on a yoga retreat!

Namaste.

Ever struggled in choosing between chiropractic care and massage therapy? Well, you don’t have to choose just one anymore! Chiropractic care and massage can help speed up the recovery process from sore muscles to other, more drastic medical issues. There have been studies shown that people have found relief from insomnia, back pain, arthritis, anxiety, soreness, fatigue and more just from combining these two powerful treatments.

Chiropractors are a specialized medical professional that use hands-on therapy to align the musculoskeletal system of the body to promote pain relief, healing, and overall wellness.

Chiropractors pay particular attention to the proper alignment of the vertebrae of the spine, though the bones, muscles, and connective tissues of other areas are also important to their practice.

Massage therapy is one of the most popular therapies as it not only feels amazing, it works wonders!

Traditionally, massage has been used to treat muscular pain and injuries, strain or injury to the soft tissues, such as those that arise from repetitive strain or spending too much time sitting in an office.

However, the benefits of massage therapy have become increasingly recognized for a wide range of other conditions as well. Studies have shown that massage therapy has been able to treat health conditions such as anxiety, high blood pressure, insomnia, and digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome.

Both chiropractic care and massage therapy have excellent outcomes for wellness when it comes to both mental health and wellbeing as well as pain and stress relief.

However, the aims of the therapies are different. While chiropractic seeks to promote and maintain proper alignment of the bones of the spine and surrounding tissues as well as other areas of the body, massage therapy focuses on releasing tension from the muscles and encouraging deep relaxation. It really is the best of both worlds!

There are a couple of ways that massage therapy and chiropractic care can be used together.

Here in Altamonte Springs, we have two great places for you to receive both chiropractic care AND massage! At Heal. we have highly trained massage therapists that will cater to your specific and individual needs on a case by case basis. We refer many of our clients to Dr. Christina Cuellar over at Revival Chiropractic in Altamonte Springs as well!

Dr. Cuellar uses a gentle approach to chiropractic care where you won’t experience your neck being turned forcefully or any cracking of bones. She uses a specific approach that provides such great results to not only your physical health… but also your mental and emotional health.

The biggest reason in why we believe chiropractic care and massage therapy work so powerfully together is due to the effect it has on the nervous system. Studies have shown that your body must be in the right environment for healing, meaning that if you are constantly in “fight or flight” mode – your body cannot heal in this state.

Massage and chiropractic will help to ground your nervous system into the parasympathetic nervous system also known as the “rest and digest” mode.

This is where healing can take place.

If you’re ready to take your life back into your own hands and feel your best – because you deserve to live a healthy life – then don’t hesitate to call Heal. at 407-300-5364 or Revival Chiropractic at 407.403.5567 to start your healing journey.


We are here for you!

“Once you truly understand that you are just beautiful energy wrapped in human form, your fear and “otherness” will disappear and you will experience deep belonging and fellowship.” – Radha Agrawal

If you feel as though your energy has been muted or your fire is dimmed, know that you don’t have to feel this way forever.

You see, our energy defines us and the people we surround ourselves with help shape our energy! Yes, everyone and anyone who you spend a lot of time with shapes your energy. Think about it, when you’re around that one friend that constantly is complaining about her job, relationship or other melodrama, don’t you sometimes go home completely depleted and lacking any energy?

Now on the other side of this, think about a friend that completely lights you up! They ooze positivity amidst the chaos of life, always emitting radiance and happiness because they’ve found that within themselves. Your conversations with each other bring you life – literally! The cloud that was once over your head following you around is now replaced by the sun as it beams down on you.

This is the feeling and type of energy you should actively surround yourself with.

It’s either energizing or completely depleting – you choose!

Our bodies are incredible. How we choose to take care of them is so important. Your “diet” is not just the foods you eat but also how much you sleep, how often you move your body and also who you allow into your energetic bubble.

You can think of energy through these different words – maybe they resonate with you better, maybe they don’t!

Vibration. Spark. Spirit. Attitude. Presence.

All of this to say that ENERGY is the most potent human attribute available to us and we need to pay closer attention to it.

“Energy is a great equalizer in life. It doesn’t matter what you do for a living or how much money you have – the energy YOU put out is the energy YOU get back! Negative energy breeds negative community. Positive energy breeds positive community. It is that simple”

Energy is the invisible backbone of our lives. It controls the way in which we perceive the world and how others perceive us! It quietly shapes our daily existence and it also controls our physical health! When we are stressed, hurt, angry or sad, we often become physically rigid. Our breath isn’t as slow and fluid and our bodies don’t heal as rapidly as normal because we are in this suffocating fight or flight response.

In order for our bodies to heal – physical, mental and even emotional bodies – we must do our best to stay energy positive in order to maintain relaxed muscles, easy breath, and calmer, happier lives.

Take a moment right here to gently tune in to your “Energetic Meter”.

Are you feeling as though your energy gas tank is on E? When was the last time you filled up your tank with nourishing, positive, healthy energy? When was the last time you relaxed? Are you eating well? What are you doing right now to energize yourself?

If you’re mind had a difficult time answering these questions or you feel as though you’re constantly giving and giving without receiving anything in return – it could mean that you’re due for an energetic reset.

Here at Heal. in Altamonte Springs we believe that you, yes you, are so capable of living your best life – day in and day out. When the weight of the world is on your shoulders however, that statement seems a little far fetched.


Just as your car needs frequent maintenance to keep on going and running smoothly, as do you!
You can’t expect to be living your life walking around on Empty! Why would you want to?


On the other side of stress there is a luscious green patch of self-care and self-kindness grass that is waiting for you. This radiant, abundant, joyful, open and healthy YOU that deserves to shine in the spotlight will finally be able to bloom and blossom.


If you’re looking to dive head first into your Energetic Reset journey, we’re here for you.


Know that we are always just one call away. If your body and mind are tired – yoga, massage, light and sound therapy, salt booth, CBD and meditation are all great tools that will assist in peeling away the layers of stress.


We look forward to relaxing with you!407-300-5364or send us an email at info@heal407.com

You’ve had a busy day. Your neck is aching, your shoulders are hunched and you’re just tense all over. You’re in luck, though! Today, your office gets to enjoy an on-site massage!

Let’s face it, long days at work sitting at a desk with little to no mobility over time can lead to bigger health issues down the line. Not only is your body holding onto tension but if you’re not bringing adequate blood flow to your body, all you’re left with are aches and pains.

If you’ve yet to consider bringing massage to your workplace, we’re here to let you know it might be the best thing you could do for your employees and yourself!

So how does it all work? Well, an office chair/table massage set up is a tad bit different from your usual relaxation massage, but not to worry! Your employees will be feeling so great in no time.

Studies have shown that American’s have stated that work is a significant source of stress and a service like on-site massage is a sure way to lower employee stress.

When workers have fewer physical complaints and lowered stress, the workday flows much easier with a regular, possibly weekly, on-site chair or table massage for even just 5-15 minutes!

There is something to be said about the powerful benefits of creating a regularly schedule massage program at your workplace. Not only do the employees benefit from a relaxed body, calmer mind and overall boost in mood here are some additional benefits that can occur:

  • Increased productivity
  • Increased employee retention
  • Reduction in health care costs
  • Fewer repetitive strain injuries
  • Improved employee morale

An estimated 85 percent of all American adults will experience some form of back pain during their lifetime.

Do you fall into that 85% range of adults who experience back pain day in and day out?! Unfortunately, in our day in age with all the dumpin’ and slumpin’ we do, it’s hard to keep that back pain at bay. Unless there was some natural healing remedy that could take care that for you…

And there is!

Massage Therapy.

Some people may right away consider massage therapy a luxury, but that’s far from the truth. Massage therapy holds such powerful benefits that it should be taken into consideration as a monthly routine, or even more frequently depending on how severe your aches and pains are.

Let’s take a look at some benefits of a regular massage schedule:

1. Increased blood flow. Increased blood flow is a known proponent of muscle recovery and studies confirm that massage therapy helps improve general blood flow and reduces soreness.

2. Decreased tension. While muscle tension is needed by the body to maintain body posture and general movements, too much tension causes pain and muscle restriction, especially in the lower back and neck. Massage therapy is clinically proven to decrease muscle tension.

3. Increased endorphins. Endorphins are the feel good chemicals in the brain. Massage tactics including acupressure and trigger point therapy generate these endorphins, which are known to reduce pain and produce a sense of euphoria.

Research shows a mere 15 minutes of massage can spark endorphins, creating up to 48 hours of their feel-good effects.

Sounds amazing right?! The best part about regularly scheduled massages is that when you begin to build that relationship with your massage therapist, you can not only grow together but over time your massage therapist will know exactly what you need without you even having to mention it!

Here at Heal., we take our massage seriously. In the most light-hearted and friendly way of course. Maria, Lisa and Adriana are all able to take care of you as they are intuitively guided and listen to your bodies response to touch. Not every massage should feel the same. Every massage you experience should be catered to YOUR specific needs, during each individual session.

Give us a call or message us if you’re looking to begin your self-care journey with us at Heal. We’re here for you every step of the way.

Massage therapy offers a wide range of health benefits, from natural pain relief and improved mobility to improved sleep and drug-free anxiety relief, a more positive outlook on life, and better stress management. Although you’re likely to notice improvements from your first deep tissue massage or relaxation massage session, the biggest benefits come from regular sessions. Reputable medical research has established the health benefits of massage therapy and disproven the notion that massage is only a luxury treatment for the wealthy and pampered. Massage therapy offers real benefits for all kinds of people.

Deep Tissue Massage For Better Physical Health 

Deep tissue massage uses slow, forceful strokes to reach muscle and connective tissues that may have been injured, or might be strained due to another injury. Deep tissue massage provides overall relaxation. But its primary target is helping the body to heal itself in specific areas that need help, such as a back sprain or chronic muscle pain from tension. Because pain and muscle tension lead to other health problems like digestive issues, headaches, and jaw pain, providing natural pain relief through massage can also alleviate these and other physical health conditions.

Improved Sleep And Emotional Well-Being

Both relaxation massage and deep tissue massage leave the body more relaxed overall, which, in combination with reducing or eliminating physical pain, can allow you to sleep longer and more deeply, which helps your body repair itself and your mind and emotions reset themselves. Massage also promotes correction of chemistry in the body that can lead to depression and anxiety. Numerous peer-reviewed medical studies found that massage lowers cortisol, which triggers stress reactions, and raises serotonin. Low serotonin levels are linked to depression, while correct serotonin levels regulate mood, social behavior, sleep, memory, and sexual desire. Many regular massage clients find that they’re calmer and more even-tempered, that their memory and thinking are sharper, and that they feel more energized and less exhausted overall.

Lasting Benefits of Massage

With a regular schedule of massage therapy over time, you’re likely to discover that it’s easier to manage your stress. You may experience fewer symptoms of anxiety, and as your body is allowed proper relaxation and sleep, it will be able to keep repairing itself, working toward its best-possible health. When you’re more relaxed and not in pain, you’ll walk straighter and sit with better posture, which, in turn, minimizes the strain on your neck, wrists, hands, shoulders, and back. Less pain, stress, and sleeplessness allows you to see the world and the people in your life in more positive ways, and, ultimately, to live a happier life.

Experience The Benefits Of Massage First-Hand 

Many people are skeptical about the potential benefits they might gain from regular deep tissue massage or relaxation massage. It’s okay if you’re one of them! If you’re in the Orlando area, we invite you to give massage therapy a try and prove to yourself that the benefits are vast and far-reaching. Contact us at the HEAL Pain & Stress Relief Center for more information and to schedule an appointment.
