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!

  •  Headaches
  •  Cold hands and feet

  •  The blues or depression
  •  Back pain

Ooh-la-la! Just think of all the sore and stiff places on your body. Now imagine the healing benefit of essential oils and heated stones working their magic. The heat penetrates your muscles and opens your blood vessels.

The Weight Of The World Stops Here

The Weight Of The World Stops Here

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.

Successfully Breaking The Cycle Of Pain Without MORE Pills!

Successfully Breaking The Cycle Of Pain Without MORE Pills!

When your body is experiencing chronic pain, you can easily become exhausted emotionally. At the same time, your body is putting up a physical fight of its own.

To counteract the pain, your lymph system, the body’s trashcan, creates excess inflammation and fluid. That puts pressure on blood vessels, causing muscles to tighten and shorten.

As the pressure increases, it irritates the nerves. No wonder you feel so much pain!

Massage helps your body remove excess fluid and inflammation, allowing the blood to flow the way your body intended.

With regular massage sessions, your nervous system, the main computer of your body, is actually re-programmed. And this breaks the old cycle of pain.

So what kind of massage is best for pain? Turn to the Swedish method. The National Institute of Health found that Swedish massage greatly increased the contentment hormone, oxytocin, much more than deep tissue massage.

In addition, massage supports your adrenal glands, those hardworking stress fighters. Already overworked from managing pain, massage helps the adrenal glands to decrease the stress hormone, cortisol.

That means you experience much less pain or no pain at all. Many of our regular chronic pain massage clients tell us they have actually reduced their pain medications because of massage.

Take back control of your health and let your body help you! Include massage as part of your pain relief therapy.

When The Baby’s Fussy And You Are, Too

When The Baby’s Fussy And You Are, Too

The baby’s been fussy…sleep is a precious commodity…and you’re tired.

Welcoming a new baby is a joyful and trying time. Both of you are adjusting to a new life and to each other! You’re also trying to get used to your body, one that feels weak and sore.

As certified pregnancy massage therapists, we love motherhood so much we took advanced training beyond the national massage certification to give you the most qualified and compassionate care possible.

That’s why we recommend post-natal massage. It helps ease the stresses that come from a new mother’s rapid transition from pregnancy to post-birth.

Post-natal massage improves circulation throughout your body, reducing post-partum swelling. And that aching back? It alleviates tension that comes from the body adjusting to a new set of daily tasks such as bending, lifting, and carrying a baby.

Post-natal massage also calms hormones, helps you regain lost energy, return the uterus to its original size, and help your body to return to its pre-pregnancy condition.

Massage helps to replace exhaustion with deep relaxation. Mother Nature’s helping hand also assists you with losing weight by giving new tone to your muscles, reducing cellulite, and alleviating neck and shoulder pain.

We can’t help with the middle of the night feedings, but we can certainly help you recuperate from childbirth and ease into motherhood with post-natal massage.

When Your Shoulders Feel “Pinched”

When Your Shoulders Feel “Pinched”

It happens.

When the stress of life gets in the way, your shoulders feel pinched and tight. Even your upper back will join the chorus of a body pushed too far. These high stress areas love to make their presence known.

Hot compresses help, but when your body is shouting at you like this, it’s time to call in some deep relief. With a pink Himalayan Salt Massage, you can do exactly that and more.

Matured for over 250 million years and preserved under intense tectonic pressure, Himalayan salt has had zero exposure to toxins and impurities. Its minerals exist in a colloidal form, which means they are tiny enough for your cells to easily absorb.

Used warm or cold, these hand carved healing salt stones relieve tissue congestion and irritation. They ground and balance your body’s electromagnetic field and your nervous system. That’s why you become deeply relaxed and healing can take place.

For your neck, shoulder and upper back, we use the smooth edge of the stone. This penetrates deeply and comfortably, loosening tight joints and muscles. The result?

You sleep better, reduce blood pressure, and detoxify your body. The even better news is that the benefits extend further:

• Strengthen your immune system
• Reinforce collagen
• Improve metabolism
• Heal sports injuries
• Neutralize pollutants
• Helps you recover from Adrenal Fatigue
• Calms hot flashes

There are so many good health reasons to make a pink Himalayan Salt Massage a regular part of health regimen, but here’s the best reason of all.

You’re worth it!

These Two Cause Weight Gain And Make Stress Worse! By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

We all know that sugar causes weight gain, premature aging, and inflammation. That’s bad enough, isn’t it? But did you know that mental tensions, frustrations, and insecurity are among the most damaging emotions you have?

The two usually travel together. When you’re feeling stressed, you usually crave sugar because your body is looking for quick energy. That’s a double whammy for weight gain and creating poor health!

So what does stress look like from inside your body? Hormones are released that cause blood vessels to shrink, which reduce circulation.

Cortisol, a stress hormone, is released by your adrenals, and that causes abdominal weight gain. Your heart works harder, breathing becomes more shallow and rapid; digestion slows.

In fact, nearly every body process is degraded.

Yep, stress is a real killer. Studies show that stress factors can cause migraines, hypertension, depression, and some peptic ulcers. Researchers estimate that 80% of disease is stress-related.

In this fast-paced, competitive world, it’s extremely important to have a self-care plan to break the destructive cycle of old stress patterns.

Massage makes you feel good and that’s good for you emotionally and physically. Chronically tight muscles are released so blood can flow normally. Tight neck, shoulders, and back practically sing with appreciation!

These overworked and extremely tight parts of your body can once again move easily, flexibility restored.

This invaluable therapy also gives you a sense of wholeness and balance within your body. That translates to greater mental clarity and calm for you in your everyday life.

Include monthly massage sessions as part of your wellness plan. It will give more life to your life!

Believe it or not, researchers estimate that 80% of disease is caused by stress. The very word itself suggests it, DIS-EASE, not at ease with the world. And you’re not alone.

The stress of work and every day living can trigger many health problems such as high blood pressure, migraines, back problems, poor circulation, susceptibility to illness, and many others.

Millions of people develop illnesses or chronic health conditions because of stress. How often have you said to yourself, “I wish I could handle this better!”

The good news is you can! To counteract stress, you must have a self-care plan in place. And while diet and exercise are critical to balancing the impact of stress, they are not always the most welcomed part of a self-care plan.

Massage, on the other hand, is the one lifestyle “correction” measure that people love. You show up with all your knots and tight muscles, and we work our magic.

But how does massage, typically called a “feel good” or “pampering” therapy help you to manage everyday stress?

Massage has been clinically proven to:

  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Increase circulation
  • Increases oxygen
  • Break the cycle of pain
  • Increase flexibility
  • Decrease stress hormones

Because massage removes toxins and inflammation from your body, it gives your body a chance to slow down and heal. That loosey-goosey sensation you have after a massage is actually working on a deeper level to break old stress and pain cycles.

For you, that means:

  1. Greater mental clarity and alertness
  2. Speedier recovery from fatigue
  3. Aching backs and migraines significantly diminish
  4. Much less susceptible to disease
  5. Significantly reducing stress

Tip the scales in your favor…and keep it that way! Include massage as part of your self-care plan.

When Your Get Up And Go Has Gone By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

It’s the little things that suddenly make you grit your teeth…you ran out of milk. The kids are fussy. Your spouse is crabby. You’re sure that jerk co-worker is trying to weasel in on your project…

And all you really want to do is take a nap, preferably one about the size that Rip Van Winkle took!

If you’re routinely feeling tired even though you sleep well, but struggle to get out of bed in the morning, feel overwhelmed and exhausted, depend on coffee and soda to get you going, you may have adrenal fatigue.

Perched on top of your kidneys, adrenals have a very tough job in today’s world. As your body’s stress combat soldiers, they release the stress hormone cortisol, as ammunition to fight off the attack.

The consequence of continuously releasing cortisol into your bloodstream causes abdominal weight gain and adrenal fatigue, to name only two health conditions.

In today’s world, your adrenals simply don’t have enough ammunition. They were designed for short periods of stress like running out of a burning building or fighting off a predator.

But in a world where you feel constant pressure with daily demands, the adrenals ability to protect you is limited. It’s like having a handsaw to cut down a tree!

Dealing with adrenal fatigue requires you to reset your lifestyle button. As part of your recovery, include the proven therapy of massage. Massage restores balance to an ailing system, reducing the production of cortisol.

Massage releases chronically tight muscles and lets blood flow normally. It tames mental tensions, frustrations, and insecurities, the most damaging emotions we have, and so often associated with adrenal fatigue.

And that really good feeling you have after a massage? It’s working on a deeper level to re-program how you respond to stress, which in turn gives you a sense of wholeness and balance.

The only side effects of massage are a stronger immune system, more balanced hormones, more energy and clarity, and better health. Ready?
