Bodywork for All

Updated: Jun 10

We offer bodywork and guidance for all people regardless of body type, size, shape, or ability. We've put a focus on ensuring that the standard setup for all of our tables and mats are so that they work 100% for whoever walks through our doorway seeking relaxation, reconnection, and recharging.

Obesity has become one of the largest chronic metabolic diseases in the world. In recent years, massage has been used more and more widely in the treatment of obesity diseases.

How do we do this and what does that mean for you? That means that our massage tables have arm rests that extend the overall width to the widest, and most comfortable setup that you're likely to find in Brevard. If you are concerned that they are not wide enough, then we can use the Thai mat or we have a 2-table setup that will allow any one to relax fully without the discomfort of having arms or legs sliding off the side. These are at no additional charge. It is just part of the experience.

We also listen to what a client says about their needs. We have all the creams, lotions, and oils needed to sooth the dry, tight, and uncomfortable skin, and we adjust our pressure and techniques to match your specific needs. Common feedback that we hear is that "people think that just because my arms are dense that I need extra pressure, and I don't really need that much." On the other end of the spectrum we have clients who have said that "I don't feel pressure when therapists try to work my back."

That's not an issue. I use the same "green, yellow, and red" pressure descriptions that I've discussed all along, and there is no limit to the amount of directed pressure I can safely apply to any given area. I always protect myself and my clients, so we may end up on a floor mat if that is what it takes to get you to the pressure and comfort preferences you request.

Why get a massage?

A common misconception about massage is that it's only part of a spa day and intended for pampering yourself. While this may be true for some people, it is most frequently a tool for stress reduction and pain relief.

Some specific conditions that massage can help include:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Digestive disorders

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Headache

  • Insomnia

  • Nerve pain

  • Postoperative care

  • Scar tissue

  • Soft tissue strains and injuries

  • Sports injuries

  • Temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders

Physical benefits of massage include:

  • Improved circulation

  • Decreased muscle stiffness

  • Decreased joint inflammation

  • Better quality of sleep

  • Quicker recovery between workouts

  • Improved flexibility

  • Less pain and soreness

  • Strengthened immune response

Mental benefits

Massage also has many mental health benefits. Even people who are focused on the physical benefits say they feel less stressed after getting a massage.

Other mental benefits include:
  • Lower stress levels

  • Improved relaxation

  • Improved mood

  • Decreased anxiety

  • More energy

  • Increase feeling of wellness

  • Improved sleep

Many of these benefits overlay the physiological and psychological variables that accompany obesity, and we are here to help with that.

Book an appointment and let your whole body relax. You'll be glad you did.
