Massage for Severe Stress, Anxiety, Insomnia and Depression
Some nights it seems impossible to fall asleep. Regardless of whether it's because of stress, pain, anxiety, hormones or schedule changes, there's nothing quite so frustrating as watching the clock tick away the minutes while you lie wide awake knowing you'll have to start the coming day severely lacking sleep.
Feeling sleepy or exhausted during your day is terrible, but in some women, insomnia can increase anxiety, depression and pain. Often, it's that depression, anxiety or pain that is keeping you up in the first place.
It's a downward spiral.
It's understandable why many women consider taking prescription sleep aids, anxiety medications or pain pills to help them cope, but let me encourage you to try a holistic approach first (with your doctor's permission). Prescription drugs can be addictive (especially for sleep, anxiety and pain) and are destructive to the stomach, kidneys and liver. There's a better way, I can help!
Research has shown that regular relaxation massage for insomnia, pain or anxiety increases your serotonin levels. Increased levels of serotonin help alleviate stress, anxiety, depression and pain. In turn, this improves your sleep pattern (and eventually restore it to a healthy state in combination with smart sleep practices).
It's an upward spiral!

You Should Know...
When you come in for your first appointment, I'll have you fill out a "New Client Intake Form" so I can learn about your health and lifestyle. We'll have a short chat before your massage so I can tailor your session specifically to your needs. I want you to get the most out of your treatment so you can experience the full benefit of receiving therapeutic massage.
During this short consultation, I'll ask you a few questions regarding your pressure preference, where you've been experiencing any pain or soreness and if you need me to focus on any areas (ie: more time on the neck and shoulders, deeper work on the feet, shooting pain in the lower back, etc). Please share any details about your day to day life (ie: frequently carrying a baby, sitting for hours at a time, arduous physical activity, etc) so I can provide the best possible massage treatment for you.
And of course, please let me know if you're uncomfortable during the massage in any way. I'll check in occasionally (more often for new clients) but if the music is too loud/quiet, the room is too warm/cold or the pressure of the massage is too light/deep, or anything else you can think of, let me know. This is your time, and your treatment should be tailored exactly to your preference.
