Winter warmness 20 Jun 2021

Winter definitely feels like it is here. Did you know that massage therapy can help fight off the negative effects of colder weather? 
Massage helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system that allows us to relax. The power of touch during massage can increase serotonin and dopamine production (those feel good hormones) to help reduce anxiety and depression. You always feel good after a massage!
It also helps give your immune system a boost by increasing the flow of lymph (which fights off infections and bacteria). 
Imagine slipping into a beautifully warmed massage bed, shutting your eyes in preparation to receive an amazing relaxing massage. 


Myofascial Release Therapy 20 Jun 2021

Myofascial release is a type of physical therapy that is effective in reducing pain. Myofascial pain can be caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. These tissues surround and support the muscles, blood vessels, organs and nerves throughout your body. This technique used by therapists at Serenity is effective in releasing adhesions, changing restrictive holding patterns in the soft tissue and restoring the body’s natural flow and glide-ability. It is highly effective at addressing pain, increasing range of movement and restoring overall function in the body.
