  8. Wellness | Massage

    Wellness | Massage Most of us associate massage with pure relaxation and the release of tension in the muscles. But massage is so much more... When muscles and surrounding tissue get stuck, the body is actually laying additional tissue down and forming a scar. We are probably aware of the scar that forms on the outside but a very similar response occurs on the inside. Therefore, during a deep tissue massage the therapist is actually breaking the bond of the scar tissue. According to a 2011 study in the “Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine,” in deep-tissue massage, the manipulation of muscle tissue causes an immediate reduction by about 18 percent of the hormone arginine vasopressin, a hormone that restricts blood vessels and raises blood pressure. This reduction initiates what is known as the "relaxation response," a mechanical response that encourages circulation, enhances the delivery of oxygen and lowers blood pressure. Additionally, massage initiates a reduction of the stress hormone cortisol, thus creating feelings of relaxation. Read more...
  9. Body Awareness | Fascia

    Body Awareness | Fascia What Is Fascia And Why Is It Important? Fascia is connective tissue fibers - primarily collagen - that form sheaths or bands beneath the skin to attach, stabilize, enclose, and separate muscles and internal organs. Fasciae are similar to ligaments and tendons as they are largely made up of collagen. They differ in their location and function, though. Ligaments join one bone to another bone, while tendons join muscle to bone and fasciae surrounds muscles and other structures. Fascia forms a whole-body, continuous three-dimensional matrix of structural support around our organs, muscles, joints, bones and nerve fibers. Fascia is directly related to movement, as it helps to support the muscles by transmitting force throughout the body. The fascial arrangement, similar to a spider web, also allows us to move in multiple directions. Read more...
  10. Body Awareness | Anatomy

    Body Awareness | Anatomy It's Your Body - Let's Understand It. The first step in taking care of your body, so that it functions, performs and feels the way you want, is to understand it. The human body has 206 bones, more than 300 joints and approximately 650 muscles, all of which are designed to work interdependently in order to function and move efficiently as a whole. If any one thing is not operating properly, the entire body can be affected. If the skeletal structure is out of alignment, or the soft tissue is unable to obtain a continuous supply of fresh oxygen, blood and fluids, a host of health issues, including pain, can result. The good news is, the body can heal. It can be restored. The body can sustain, adapt, and rebuild. It can also be maintained and conditioned in order to avoid dysfunction that causes pain.
