What Your Tension Spots Are Trying To Tell You By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
Stress affects each of us differently. For some, it’s high blood pressure, chronic back pain, or migraines. For others, it’s neck and shoulder pain, stiffness, tightness, or adrenal fatigue.
Stress has so many faces that you may not instantly recognize your tension spot as a result of it. But here’s the interesting part. Researchers estimate that 80% of disease is stress-related.
The reason? We work too much and play too little. When we can’t experience a deep sense of contentment in life, the lack of it is going to show up elsewhere, usually as health problems.
That’s why massage is so beneficial. It works on many different levels to heal both physical and emotional pain. And that wobbly-let-me-just-space-out-for-about-an-hour feeling you get after a massage?
Well, that’s the therapy working on your Central Nervous System to re-program your response to stress and pain. In other words, it’s breaking the old cycle of pain and stress.
Massage lets you experience deep contentment—and that’s the one key ingredient for good health and business success. Yet, we experience it so little.
Those tension spots you keep rubbing and wishing would go away are asking for relief. Just like you are.
Massage gives you back your happy face, releases your body from old patterns of stress and pain, and puts more life in your life.

When Your Legs Hurt During Pregnancy (And What To Do About It) By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
In the later stages of pregnancy it’s not uncommon for women to experience leg pain, as well as swelling hands, feet, and ankles.
That’s because there is an enormous demand placed on a woman’s circulatory system. Blood volume can increase by as much as 50%! But blood flow to her legs becomes sluggish, putting her at risk for blood clots.
Legs can also hurt because of an expanded uterus and a growing baby resting on the sciatic nerve. Warm baths, swimming, and pelvic tilts ease the discomfort, but turn to pregnancy massage for greater relief.
As certified pregnancy massage therapists, we love impending motherhood so much we took advanced training beyond the national massage certification.
It’s our passion to safely ease the common discomforts of pregnancy, like hurting legs, an aching back, and swelled hands, feet, and ankles.
In our safe, loving hands, pregnancy massage reduces leg pain, and many other discomforts of pregnancy. It also increases oxygen in your blood, which delivers more nutrients to you and your baby.
Pregnancy massage also stimulates your body’s natural painkillers, endorphins. It helps relieve anxiety or depression, and tones muscles. There are so many benefits to pregnancy massage that we can’t list them all here.
You can be assured that under the experienced hands of one of our certified pregnancy massage therapists you and your baby are receiving nurturing, physical support for a healthy birth, while easing the discomforts of a dramatically changing body.

When You’re Too Tired To Sleep By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
It’s an awful feeling, isn’t it? Tossing and turning, wishing in vain that sleep would settle over you?
For millions, insomnia is a beast they just can’t tame. Sometimes it’s chronic pain that keeps sleep at bay, and sometimes it’s stress. Both are complex self-perpetuating pain cycles.
• Your thoughts race and you can’t turn them off
• Pain intensifies at night, which causes your body to tense in response
Sleeping pills help but they don’t get to the root of the cause, but massage therapy does!
That’s why so many doctors recommend massage on a regular basis. It actually re-programs your autonomic nervous system. But sometimes pain is so severe the massage therapist cannot work as deeply as needed.
When this happens, consider turbo-charging your massage with Hot Stone Therapy. Using essential oils and heated basalt stones, smooth river rocks are placed on areas causing the most pain.
Heat deeply penetrates gently releasing chronic stress knots. This single step is key to deeply working areas too tender to manage with skilled massage therapy hands.
Profoundly relaxing, Hot Stone Massage helps to decrease stress hormones and balance the central nervous system, breaking the pain cycle. Traditional massage does this as well, but Hot Stone Massage works more deeply because of the heat.
You might say your body is re-set after Hot Stone Massage allowing for quicker changes, interrupting the self-perpetuating cycle of insomnia. Get the restorative sleep you need.
Consider Hot Stone Massage for a good night’s rest every night!

The Weight Of The World Stops Here
It might seem like your boss controls everything you do, but it’s not really true. Actually, that would be your Central Nervous System, your body’s main computer.
Tight work deadlines, family responsibilities, not to mention the pressure you put on yourself, all add up to your body’s version of the caveman’s fight or flight response.
We might not have to worry about a saber tooth tiger, but your boss can sure feel like one. (Or maybe a very bad computer virus!)
The problem is this. The caveman fights the tiger and lives to see another day.
His stress is suddenly gone—poof! And he’s got dinner. Not a bad prize for a hard day’s work.
But today, it’s a different story. The stress never stops. You may think you learn to “live with it,” but your body spends every minute trying to balance out systems that are totally out of whack:
- Sleep—turns into insomnia
- Digestion—Heartburn, indigestion, constipation
- Immunity—More susceptibility to illness
Stress causes your heart to work harder. Breathing becomes more rapid and shallow; digestion slows. In fact, nearly every body process is degraded because of it.
You might not be able to turn off the stress—or run from it—like our ancestors, but you can do something about it. Take control of your health by including massage as part of your self-care plan.
Massage is the one therapy that actually gives you the stress release you need. That “limp as dishrag” feeling you get after a massage is working wonders to repair the damage that every day stress causes.
Massage has been clinically proven to:
• Reduce cortisol, the stress hormone responsible for that tummy you can’t get rid of.
• Reduce blood pressure
• Increase circulation and oxygen, which improves mental clarity
The National Institute Of Health and the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry both published studies demonstrating the positive effects of massage on stress and anxiety.
Get the weight of the world off of your shoulders. Massage feels good and it’s so good for you. Do it for yourself and your family.
