Therapeutic massage incorporates a variety of advanced modalities that enhance the body’s natural restorative functioning. Light to firm touch is used to release tension, relax muscles, increase blood and lymph circulation, and impart a sense of calm. Therapeutic massage can be used as a collaborative, supportive addition to conventional medical treatment of illness and injury, alleviating pain and stress, aiding soft tissue healing, and revitalizing the body. Also, regular massage can enhance health, providing relaxation, release of muscle tightness, relief from anxiety and tensions, and balancing aspects of mind/body/spirit.
Reiki Energy Therapy
Reiki is one of the most common forms of vibrational (or energy) medicine. Vibrational medicine has been practiced throughout the world for thousands of years. While massage therapy focuses on the physical body, Reiki focuses on the subtle body (the energy system of the physical body). Reiki therapy strives to aid in healing the illness using these subtle energy fields. Reiki therapy is based on the biofield, or a type of energy field that “regulates everything from our cellular function to our nervous system.”
About Vibrational Medicine
We have all heard the phrase,”mind/body/spirit”. This acknowledges the reality that we are so much more than just skin and bone. In fact, we are multidimensional beings. Although we all do not question that we are made up of matter (body) and the physical reality of our existence, vibrational medicine recognizes other levels of reality. Western physics does not disagree, as Einstein stated that “all matter is energy” when he discovered that E = MC2 (energy equals mass times the square of the speed of light). Plato alludes to this same extension of energy beyond matter in his “theory of forms.” Most people have heard of the practice of Tai Chi, or Qi gong, which are ancient forms of Chinese exercise meant to stimulate proper energy flow and rejuvenate the body. Although we generally only focus on the 7 main chakra centers within our bodies, in reality we have over 350 chakras or energy centers within us. Sometimes the energy pattern (meridians) within our bodies become blocked at various points. These blocked areas of energy are generally associated with discomfort, disease and illness. Reiki and therapeutic massage are the natural complement to modern chiropractic medicine to align the physical and energy body and allow us to naturally thrive.
Massage and Reiki Energy Therapy are two common, natural, drug-free modalities that help to alleviate pain and discomfort while rejuvenating and energizing the body.
