Injury, sminjury.

Have you been dealing with pain from an injury, or from a surgery for awhile, and are so over it?

What’s next?

Here is something you haven’t heard of to think of.

MPS Therapy which stands for Microcurrent Stimulation. It is a type of needleless acupunture to aid in Scar Tissue Release for surgical scars. Many people have no idea that lingering pain after surgury are from surgical scars themselves. The skin get so tight around the scar, creating a pulling from inside. MPS Therapy helps release these scars and return the skin back to its natural suppleness.

The Dolphin Neurostim is the world’s first device specifically designed for to reduce sympathetic stress for the reduction of soft tissue pain. Dolphin applies brief, concentrated DC micro-impulses to key neurological points (called MPS Therapy) that reduce nervous system stress to relax muscles and relieve pain. This natural but potent form of pain relief is now being applied in over 60,000 hospitals and pain clinics world-wide.

When combined with massage, the results are extaordinary.

If you haven’t tried it, you have nothing to lose, except that pain you’re feeling. Leave it behind, let’s get you on the table, and get rid of that lingering pain for good.

Are you angry, sad, nervous, worried?  Is your mind racing with thoughts about life when you’re trying to sleep?  Negative emotions can cause bad dreams and make it difficult to get a good nights sleep.

Maybe you don’t have negative emotions but you could also be too excited, anxious, and happy.  Over time, a lack of quality sleep will cause all types of problems for you. Reiki is great at calming and balancing your emotions so your mind can be still when your trying to sleep.

Stuck or stagnant energy in your body and aura prevent the flow of life force energy within you.  Reiki helps to dissolve that stuck energy by melting it away or breaking it into smaller pieces.  Clearing stuck energy in the chest area will help with your breathing at night.  When your energy is flowing freely, tension reduces and your mind relaxes allowing you to have a better night’s sleep.

The word translates, loosely, as ‘universal energy.’ It refers to the practice of laying hands on or over the person receiving treatment to transmit said energy through their body, thus removing ‘energy blockages’ – and so promoting wellbeing and feelings of deep relaxation.

Reiki helps to soothe and slow down the sympathetic nervous system. When the sympathetic nervous system (fright and flight) is switched off, anxiety and stress is decreased. When more relaxed, sleep quality is likely to improve.

A recent study published in Biological Research for Nursing explored the ability of Reiki to produce a relaxation response. In this study, subjects’ heart rate variability, body temperature and cortisol levels were measured at various intervals before and after Reiki treatment. The study found that, while cortisol levels remained the same, there was a positive effect on heart rate variability and body temperature. This indicated a statistically significant relaxation response.

In another recent study, 15 volunteers who reported frequent episodes of insomnia were taught to use Reiki techniques for self-healing. At the end of the study, researchers found that Reiki improved sleep patterns and decreased episodes of insomnia among the participants. The results of the study also indicated that Reiki promotes stability of the parasympathetic nervous system, as well as calmness.

If you’ve ever experienced a migraine you know how debilitating they can be, causing severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours to days, and the pain can be so severe that it interferes with your daily activities.

You might feel as though you’ve tried everything you can to relieve the pain you feel during your migraine episodes, but have you ever incorporated massages in between migraines to help alleviate some of the discomfort that comes with migraines?

Studies have shown that massage brings relief for both tension and vascular headaches. At Heal. in Altamonte Springs, we’re able to treat migraines through massage technique, essential oils, sound therapy and more. The most common treatment for migraines at Heal. would be through massage therapy.

Here’s a little bit of how a massage might help you when there’s no where to turn when the migraines hit:

Muscle Spasms or Tension:  Massage in the neck and shoulder regions can help to relax taught bands of tissue, loosening  the sub-occipitals (those muscles attached to the base of the skull),  which cause pain through tension that travels up through the back of the head and into the eye areas.

Hormone Regulation:  Hormonal chemical changes often trigger migraines. Cortisol, commonly known as the stress hormone, can be controlled by massage therapy, which also increases endorphin production as well as stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system.

Decrease Trigger Point Pain: Neuromuscular therapy, also known as trigger point therapy, targets hyper-irritable, tender, tissue areas that can refer pain to other parts of the body.

Improved Circulation: Massage has been shown to increase blood flow, which in turn improves oxygen levels and can help reduce pain over time.

Not only is a massage a great stress-relieving, pain-alleviating treatment, people find tremendous relief from headache problems even after one session. In fact, with focus on the muscles and points of the body connected to headaches, migraine sufferers who receive regular massage experience fewer migraines and sleep better during the week of their massages.

There are specific techniques that your massage therapist will incorporate into your session if the goal is to, over-time, reduce the pain/duration frequency of migraines.

Regularly scheduled massages might be what saves you from the isolating, painful and at times suffocating migraine periods that also play a big part in your overall mental and physical well-being.

If you are ready to feel lighter, calmer and reduce the impact headaches/migraines have on you, please do not hesitate to reach out to us!

All of our massage therapists can help you to find the relief you need.

If this sounds like you, feel free to give us a call at 407-300-5364 or email us at info@heal407.com with any questions you may have or to book your massage.

If allergy season is taking a toll on you, and you’re tired of reaching for allergy medication and feeling drowsy, you’re not alone!

Did you know that natural options exist that are much safer and effective?

Here are 3 natural ways to find relief from your allergy symptoms

Dry Salt therapy

Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is an all-natural, safe and drug-free remedy to take care of allergies and other respiratory conditions. Salt has natural antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory benefits that aids in loosening excessive mucus. All of the properties in dry salt therapy make it a gentle and effective modality to take care of all that comes with seasonal allergies: swelling, inflammation, excessive mucus and infection.

Naturally find relief from seasonal allergies, bronchitis, sinusitis, headaches, COPD, cystic fibrosis and more through dry salt therapy. The great part is, you can opt-in to use the dry salt booth on it’s own or as a complementary treatment if you are currently on any prescribed medications for any of the conditions mentioned above.

Facial Massage 

Allergies can often produce headaches and of course, sinus pressure and congestion. A facial massage uses gentle finger pressure on the head, cheekbones, and around the eyes to help stimulate the release of mucus.

Massage also generates a calming effect through the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing the body’s level of stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) that are often found responsible for an allergic response.

Essential oils

Essential oils can do more than just create a pleasant scent in your home; they can support your allergy symptoms as well! Many essential oils contain anti-inflammatory properties and work like antihistamines. They can be used in a diffuser or infused into your next massage!

Here are three of our favorites for relieving allergy symptoms

Peppermint essential oil is an excellent decongestant. Inhaling diffused peppermint oil can almost immediately unclog the sinuses and offer relief to scratchy throats by reducing inflammation. It can also act as an expectorant and provides allergy relief in addition to relieving symptoms from colds, coughs, sinusitis, asthma, and bronchitis.

Lemon essential oil works as a natural antihistamine, relieving excess mucus and cools down inflammatory reactions. It also helps with respiratory conditions. Lemon is also known for its antibacterial properties. It helps support the lymphatic system drainage, which can relieve a stuffy nose. It also helps people overcome respiratory conditions and helps relieve coughs. 

Eucalyptus essential oil is anti-inflammatory with a menthol-like feeling, making it an ideal oil to promote feelings of clear breathing and open airways and for creating a soothing massage experience. It’s been shown to break up mucus and phlegm, clearing out your sinuses to help you breathe better.

Goodbye, stuffy nose!

We hope this article has helped you out today in thinking about how you can manage your allergy symptoms through salt therapy, facial massage, and essential oils.

No one quite understands back pain unless they have experienced it.

It’s painful.

It’s debilitating.

You’re unable to find peace and ease in your everyday life. 

Your back pain is trying to tell you something. 

Chronic back pain might be caused by stuck emotions.

Finding relief from the pain is one thing, but finding a way to free yourself from the underlying cause is something else. 

In order to resolve any pain in the body, we must be willing to consider both physical, emotional, and energetic issues.

The lower back is our foundation on which everything is built. It’s the basis for emotional support, a sense of security, both physically and financially. When things go wrong there will be a feeling of being overburdened and under-supported. 

Lower back pain can be a sign of the lack of support, extreme emotional pressure due to feeling totally unsupported in life and lost in decision. The resulting lower back pain comes from a lack of support and feeling alone in the world. 

Energy work gets to the root of this pain. By releasing the weakening emotions and stagnant energy. 

By releasing these heavy emotions and energy, the body no longer needs to express the pain and discomfort physically.

This clearing can improve the body’s ability to heal and gives a sense of well-being.

A study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine in 2018 looked at 60 people with herniated spinal disks and found that Reiki reduced the severity of back pain and improved people’s ability to perform activities of daily living as well as a course of physical therapy.

Whatever your low back pain feels like, you don’t have to suffer. 

You no longer have to go throughout your day feeling the pain and agony erupting at the bottom of your spine. 

We’re here for you. 

Setting boundaries is a radical act of self-care. 

Healthy boundaries define who we are in relation to others. Having a sense of boundaries and limits also helps you to connect with your true self.

Setting boundaries is not selfish. 

Self-care is manifested as an act of self-love.

We all know that we need to secure our own oxygen mask before assisting other on an airplane in the case of an emergency. 

The same applies to taking care of ourselves.

Make self-care a priority.

Set aside time each day for yourself. Communicate with the people in your life that this is your uninterrupted time to care for you.

Creating a physical boundary, such as a having a designated quiet space in your home where you can just be, is a way of taking care of yourself.

Know your limits.

Identify what you can tolerate and accept, and what makes you feel uncomfortable or stressed. Know how you deserve to be treated and be clear about your expectations for the way other treat you. 

For example, asking the people in your life to not criticize, invade your personal space, or take their anger out on you.

Setting boundaries takes courage, practice, and support, and it’s a skill that YOU can master! <3

Pause for a moment and breathe.

Imagine what it might feel like to feel centered, calm, and aligned in every situation; to know you have a safe, peaceful place inside you that you can connect with anytime you need it; to feel secure and comfortable in your own body; to know that you can heal your mind, body, and spirit.

Within each one of us is the innate ability to heal ourselves.

To free ourselves from our obsessive thoughts, worries, and fears, and find peace and ease.

We weren’t put here on here to feel anxious and overwhelmed.

To feel unworthy and sad.

To feel not enough.

To constantly feel tense.

And we don’t have to stay feeling this way.

These are all symptoms of having an accumulation of energetic debris in your biofield. 

Overtime, this accumulation can really impact us and we may not even know where it is coming from, leading us to feeling stuck, lost, and confused.

All disease, whether physical or mental, has an imbalance at the energetic level that needs to be addressed as well. Since we are influenced by the world’s energy vibrations, our bodies are able to accept and connect with bioenergy healing.

Bioenergy shares information of health, not illness. So many things focus on the illness, when really, we want to focus on the healing.

Transmission of this information of health, adjusts and balances the biofield to restore health on all levels – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.

To me, Pure Bio allows us to stop living in the dark and turns the light switch on in your life.

Each session is 4 treatments that are done 4 consecutive days in a row.

Because of this, it is a subtle, gentle, non-invasive approach to energy work.

Ready to shift your vibe and start living healthy, happy, and pain free?

I’m here for you!

Let’s talk about self-care.

Self-care isn’t always about getting your nails done or getting a massage (although we’d love to get you on the table) 🙂

Self care should not be something we resort to because we are so absolutely exhausted that we need some reprieve from our own relentless internal pressure. 

It’s about making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from. 

It’s about parenting yourself and making choices for your long-term wellness. 

It’s about choosing a life that feels good over a life that just looks good. 

It’s about learning to stop trying to “fix yourself” and start trying to take care of yourself…

and maybe finding that taking care of yourself lovingly attends to a lot of the problems you were trying to fix in the first place.

Self care is radical feeling and radical honesty. 

It’s not always beautiful or easy. It may look like enforcing a morning routine, ending a toxic relationship, or simply sitting and feeling all your feelings. 

Self-care is a Divine responsibility. 

You don’t have to do this alone.

We are here for you!

Just like we need to take care of our physical body, we need to do the same for our energetic body. We are all made up of different energies, and when these energies become stagnant, unbalanced, or blocked, it can cause illness. 

Crystal healing helps unblock, balance, and direct energy where it is most needed, gently supporting the body to heal. 

Crystal Healing involves intuitive placement of stones along meridian lines and energy centers to assist in removing stuck energy to raise your vibration, improve your mood and improve your relationship with yourself.

You will leave feeling renewed, rejuvenated, lighter in mind, body, and soul, and further guided on your individual healing journey. Though the healing process is different for everyone, crystals can bring calmness and inner peace to all. 

It never ceases to amaze and humble me how profoundly cleansing and clearing stones can be.

There are different types of crystals, depending on the different type of mineral it’s made from and the conditions it forms in. 

The way crystals are formed imbues them with the ability to hold different energies.

Here are a few of our favorites!

Aragonite is a stabilizing stone that centers and grounds. It provides strength and support, helping to combat anger and emotional stress. 

Lepidolite is a soothing and peaceful stone, helpful in diffusing heavy energy to allow for a sense of balance and stability. It can bring a sense of calm and tranquility during times of stress and chaos. 

Peacock Ore is known as a stone of happiness.  It uplifts our self-esteem and helps us to let go of doubts, fears, and any self-limiting beliefs we may have. 

We’ve all been there. You’ve had a long day of battling traffic, reaching deadlines, feeling your feelings, running around like a chicken with its head cut off, forgetting to breathe through it all – ENOUGH! There’s no need for you to hold on to all of that excess energy that you may have picked up along the way throughout your day. You deserve to tuck yourself into bed at night, close your eyes and feel like you can truly let the day come to an end, without repeating scenarios in your mind to lull you to sleep.

Sometimes we might even just feel stuck, stagnant or OFF. Trust those vibes, my friend. All those “not so pleasant” feelings come to alert you that something within your own energy is off. So how do we take care of ourselves amidst the world we live in?

There are 3 tools/ways that you can incorporate into your daily routine at any time you feel spacey, anxious, worried, restless or not like yourself. Simple, quick and so effective.

  1. Pause, Breathe, Be.
    Something amazing takes place within our energy field when we allow ourselves the time to be still and quiet. This can be done on your break at work, sitting in your car or outside in nature, before bed or after you wake up, maybe before an important conversation or meeting, or at any time in your day that you can tune the world out for 3–5 minutes (if you have more time, that’s even better!) Simply focus on the subtle breeze at the tip of your nose with each inhale and each exhale. Or, focus on your belly muscles lifting and falling with every breath in, every breath out.
  2. Burn, baby, burn!
    We’re talking about energy clearing with sage and palo santo to banish negativity and really bring home the good vibes! The science behind it? When burned, sage smoke releases ions that have been linked to positive mood boosts. In addition to being an excellent stress-reliever, burning sage and palo santo can be a powerful self-care practice. Intention is everything with this ritual, so before you light up, ask yourself what you’re trying to purify and/or heal from or release — in your space and in yourself. Smudging is a great way to create a new, pure space, and infuse it with your own positive thoughts and intentions.
  3. Release with Reiki Energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness. Reiki works with the energy fields around the body to clear any blockages that may be occurring energetically as a result of stress, anxiety, mood issues, physical ailments. A reiki treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you, surrounding and enveloping you in an all-encompassing, universal energy that has the power to enhance your overall well-being.
