The Power Of Massage

The Power of Massage Therapy.

Regardless of what brings you to the table, when you take an hour to release some pain, stress, anxiety or to treat an injury you are making your health and happiness a priority, and there is a powerful trickle down effect.

Massage therapy has well-documented effects on stress, decreasing cortisol and increasing serotonin production. When you are happier, that is a positive force on the people around you, whether it is co-workers or your family. On days that your stress is lower you will make better decisions, spend more time enjoying the little things, and smile more. All of which send positive ripples out to the universe around you.

But there is more than that, by taking time out of your day, especially out of your working day, when you mind is engaged is solving the problems of your job, whether you manage people, create things, calculate things or input information into a computer, by disengaging your active mind, you allow your super powerful subconscious access to those problems.

I have been practicing massage for nearly 25 years, in all sorts of settings, and over and over again, I have been told that during a massage an answer to a problem appeared fully formed in a client’s mind.

That is the power of walking away from things for an hour, finding peace and letting the universe into your consciousness to help you solve a problem.

So next time work seems overwhelming, and there doesn’t seem like there is enough time to get everything done, I challenge you to disengage and try the miracle of massage.

Massage Therapy and Show Jumping

As we enter our final week at Spruce Meadows for 2016, and we look back over the last month, we feel grateful as always for this opportunity.

On top of being a majestic place to work, and the chance to work with some of the world’s finest athletes in this sport, it is always humbling to see how hard these athletes work in order to achieve success.

So often the horses don’t just come first, but they push all human needs into the far, far back ground.

But back injuries, in particular plague the human half of this sport, and we know that by keeping these muscles limber, and by taking even a 1/2 hour a couple times a week, riders can better control their horses, both by being in a better mental space, as well as maintaining the strength and flexibility to control their bodies and how the horses respond.

Watching the champions ring is often very reflective of who has been in our treatment rooms over the week proceeding the big competition and it makes working here even more fun.
