WHO CAN BENEFIT?
Intuitive Therapeutic Massage helps people of all ages navigate through their journey toward wellness. Many symptoms of disease and conditions benefit from this therapy, the most common include:
Acute Pain – pain lasting less than 3 to 6 months or pain that is directly related to tissue damage.
Anxiety - A chronic condition characterized by an excessive and persistent sense of apprehension with physical symptoms such as sweating, palpitations or feelings of stress. Anxiety disorders have biological and environmental causes. Anxiety disorders often result in depression, social isolation, shame, loss of esteem and substance abuse.
Behavioral Disorders - Behavior disorders go beyond mischief and rebellion. With behavior disorders, your child or teen has a pattern of hostile, aggressive or disruptive behavior for more than 6 months.
Betrayal Trauma - occurs when the people or institutions we depend on for
survival violate us in some way. An example of betrayal trust is childhood
physical, emotional, or sexual abuse.
Chronic Pain – Pain that last more than 3 to 6 months or beyond the point of tissue healing.
Conduct Disorders (CD) - A behavioral and emotional disorder of childhood and adolescence. Children with conduct disorder act inappropriately, infringe on the rights of others and violate the behavioral expectations of others.
Digestive Disorders - Digestive disorders are the pathologic conditions interfering with proper digestion.
Fibromyalgia - A disorder classified by the presence of chronic widespread pain and a heightened and painful response to gentle touch.
Multiple Sclerosis - A chronic, progressive disease marked by gradual degeneration of the nerve cells in the central nervous system that control voluntary muscle movement. The disorder causes muscle weakness and atrophy.
Restless Leg Syndrome - An uncomfortable creeping, crawling, tingling, pulling, twitching, tearing, aching, throbbing, prickling or grabbing sensation in the calves that occur while sitting or lying down. Whatever the nature of the sensation, the result is an uncontrollable urge to relieve it by moving the legs.
Sports Injuries - Sports injuries result from acute trauma or repetitive stress associated with athletic activities. Sports injuries can affect bones or soft tissue (ligaments, muscles, tendons). It is also important to remember that many types of injuries that affect athletes may also occur in workers in certain occupations; for example, many people in the building trades develop tennis elbow or golfer's elbow.
Stress - Forces from the outside world impinging on the individual. Stress is a normal part of life that can help us learn and grow. Conversely, stress can cause us significant problems.
TMJ - Disorder of the Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) causing pain usually in front of the ear. Pain in the TMJ can be due to trauma (such as a blow to the face), inflammatory or degenerative arthritis or by the mandible being pushed back towards the ears whenever the patient chews or swallows. Sometimes, muscles around the TMJ used for chewing can go into spasm, causing head and neck pain and difficulty opening the mouth normally.
Trauma - Trauma involves exposure to a catastrophic event usually of a life
threatening or seriously physically threatening nature. Traumatic events
include experiences such as having witnessed violence, having been a victim
of crime or violence, having lived through a natural disaster, having been a
combatant or civilian in a war zone, having witnessed or having been a
victim of a severe accident.
