Complementary medicine is an invaluable piece of your overall healthcare plan. While other types of healthcare cover you once you are sick or injured, complementary medicine, such as massage therapy and acupuncture, have the distinct benefit of being both preventive and reactive.
To take full advantage of these benefits, it is important to know that bodywork offers cumulative results. While short terms gains can be obtained after a single treatment, it is a consistent commitment that allows you to reach the peak of your physical and mental well being. After one treatment you feel relaxed, stress-free, and symptom-free and then the work week sets in, stress builds, and soon your shoulders are back to their painful, “usual” place up by your ears. However, after multiple treatments over time, you will start to notice that your shoulders actually prefer to be as far away from your ears as possible!
Whether your goal is to relieve chronic back pain, rehab an injury, nurture a pregnancy or quit smoking, building on consecutive treatments, in a planned series, allows you to reach and maintain that peak of wellness. The human body has an amazing capacity to adapt and change when it is given consistent and positive direction.
