Prenatal Massage Packages

The American Pregnancy Association recommends prenatal massage therapy as an emotional and physical health supplement proven to improve pregnancy outcome and maternal health.1At Vital Touch Wellness, we love moms-to-be!  Our licensed massage therapists at Vital Touch Wellness are nurturing, compassionate, and specially trained to work with pregnant women.  We ensure your comfort, safety and privacy as you take the very best care of you and your baby. Benefits of routine prenatal massage1 Hormone Regulation– Studies show massage significantly alters stress hormones during pregnancy, resulting in balanced mood levels and improved cardiovascular health, as well as fewer complications during birth and fewer instances of newborn complications, such as low birth weight. Reduction of Swelling– Massage significantly improves blood circulation and reduces the collection of fluids in swollen joints. Improves Sciatic Pain– The pressure of the uterus spreads tension to the muscles of the upper and lower leg, causing them to swell and put pressure on nearby nerves. Massage therapy addresses the inflamed nerves by releasing muscle tension in affected areas. Many women have experienced significant reduction in sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy through regular massage. More potential benefits Reduced back pain Reduced joint pain Improved circulation Reduced edema Reduced muscle tension and headaches Reduced stress and anxiety Improved oxygenation of all tissues Better sleep For optimal results, consider a pre– or postnatal massage therapy package.

Kellie Springer, RN Writes a Memoir

Kellie Springer, RN Writes a Memoir

That’s right!  We are absolutely thrilled to announce this brand new book by our very own Kellie Springer. In “Relentless, A Journey of Forgiveness,” Kellie shares her very human experience on the path to forgiveness for the abuses she suffered as a child. She explores the depth of trauma and the long journey to healing, self-awareness, and self-compassion. Readers will be captivated by her candid story, anxiously accompanying Kellie through her walk of personal growth, and finally celebrating her realization of compassion and forgiveness. In telling her story, Kellie seeks to inspire others to own their stories and the truths that lie within themselves, in order that they may live from a place of authenticity. We wish Kellie the most sincere congratulations on this culmination of a lifetime of perseverance and hope. About Kellie Kellie worked as a Psychiatric Nurse for 13 years and currently practices as a Reiki Master with a gift for intuitive insights. Kellie has been with Vital Touch Wellness for over 8 years, and considers herself fortunate to share both Reiki and her intuition with others as they explore themselves and their lives more deeply.  She joyfully shares her life with her husband, two children, and two dogs to hug. Kellie’s business is called Anam Cara, which translates to “soul friend.”  For more information about Kellie, and to read her ongoing blog on spiritual growth and authenticity, visit her website at www.anamcarakellie.com How Can You Get Your Copy? “Relentless, A Journey of Forgiveness” is full of wisdom on personal growth, self-awareness, and self-compassion.

What Is Cupping Therapy?

What Is Cupping Therapy?

What Is Cupping Therapy?  Part One: Soma Cupping Most of you have probably seen the recent coverage of Olympic athletes with the red spots on their backs and shoulders, revealed to be the results of the application of a therapy called “cupping.” While it is a relatively new treatment for modern athletes, the practice of cupping has been around the block for a long time.  Developed over 3000 years ago and documented in various ancient cultures such as China, Egypt, and Greece, cupping therapy was used to treat disease, resolve structural issues, and improve the flow of chi.  The technique uses cups and suction to create a vacuum next to the skin and thus stimulate blood, lymph, waste products, and other body fluid to flow through and out of the area. Before modern technology, cupping was typically practiced by heating the air inside glass, bamboo, or clay cups and turning them upside down on the skin to produce the desired vacuum effect. Today, we can minimize the risk of burning and enhance our control of the cups by using several very cool inventions.  We use two of these applications at Vital Touch Wellness:  hard, plastic cups that work with a vacuum pump; and soft silicone cups.  Each elicits a similar and yet somewhat different response in the body.  We’ll focus on the soft silicone cupping in Part One of this series. Soma Cupping Therapy Licensed massage therapist Gregory Gorey developed specific techniques for using the silicone cups that he named Soma Cupping. The way these soft, clear cups works is quite simple:  a trained massage therapist squeezes the cup, gently presses it onto the skin, and as she lets go, flesh gets drawn up into the cup as it “sticks” to the body.  It’s easy for the therapist to adjust the suction to get just the right amount.  Then the therapist may leave the cup in place for a few seconds to a few minutes, or she may apply massage lotion so that she can slide the cup around, stroking, angling, or even twisting the cup for best results.  Soma Cupping is quite gentle and rarely leaves marks on the skin.  What does Soma Cupping do for the body? The effects of these little cups is amazing. The negative pressure they produce gives them a unique advantage to traditional hands-on massage. Instead of pressing and rubbing, Soma Cupping lifts and separates tissues off of each other, creating space and bathing the tissues in fluid.  This has a similar effect to soaking a dry, brittle sponge in water – our rehydrated fascia (the tissue that wraps our muscles and organs and is full of sensory nerve endings) becomes pliable and supple, increasing our range of motion, improving lymphatic and blood circulation, and reducing pain and stiffness.  The added beauty of Soma Cupping is that it can produce the effects of deep tissue massage and myofascial release with less pain for the client. * We can use cupping in massage for various other benefits: Relieve trigger points Loosen scar tissue Improve lymphatic movement Soften tight fascia and muscles Stimulate weak tissue What issues can Soma Cupping help? So what does all this talk of fascia softening and lymphatic function mean for you?  Could you benefit from your therapist adding cupping to your massage?...
