Fall E-newsletter

Healing Arts Massage Therapy - Plymouth Michigan Massage

Fall Greetings!

We hope the nice, cooler weather is a welcome relief, and that you are enjoying bountiful harvests from spring seeds planted! At Healing Arts, we have been growing as well, and have a new service to offer and some informative answers to questions on our various massage specialties.

Facials for Skin Health & Beauty

In my Esthetician practice, I am focusing on balancing the body and skin through relaxing facial skin care services along with massage techniques. By balancing the body and mind, and with the use of powerful and natural based skin care products, the skin can be more radiant than ever. The skin is our largest organ, and it's health depends on the state of our mental and physical well being, as well as the products we apply topically. A harsh approach is not needed to get results, and given time most skin care concerns can be helped. We can give your skin balance and help boost collagen production by taking a gentle natural approach. The natural based and organic products used can target acne, oily skin, dry skin, aging skin, acne scars and more.

In a 60 or 90 minute facial at Healing Arts you will receive a cleansing, facial masques for both refinement and treatment, relaxing scalp/ foot/ hand and arm massage, and finally toning/ treating and moisturizing the skin. The scalp and feet are the universal stress points of the body -- by taking a full body approach to your facial service you will leave feeling refreshed and glowing, and your skin will thank you!
Facials can be customized to address your skin care needs. During consultation, together we can select the treatment and the home care you need to maintain beautiful skin.
Appointments are available Tuesday through Saturday.

Chronic Pain and Orthopedic Massage

If you are suffering with pain, Orthopedic Massage can be very effective in relieving and even eliminating most muscular aches and pains. Muscular pain can be caused from over-use, abuse, misuse or lack of use. With Orthopedic Massage, the focus is on providing muscular balance by relaxing overly tight muscles and strengthening opposing weak muscles – the muscles are addressed as groups.
Orthopedic massage resets dysfunctional muscular patterns that create painful trigger points with resistive exercise and stretch, then blends relaxing Swedish methods with Deep Tissue techniques. It is highly effective for even the most stubborn cases. Not only does this approach achieve muscular balance, it also provides long-term pain relief.
Appointments are available Tuesday through Saturday.

Craniosacral Therapy & Lymphatic Drainage

Craniosacral therapy uses very gentle pressure therapy which can be used integrated with either or both massage therapy and/or lymphatic drainage. It supports the tissues of the body in the release of 'held' tension, to allow the musculature to relax more fully. It can be useful to release structural trauma/damage in the head, neck & shoulder area, and, through the pathways from the spinal column, communication and connection can be made with other parts of the body to support multi-layered issues.
Lymphatic Drainage is again very gentle pressure therapy which focuses on flushing the lymphatic pathways and the lymph nodes. The lymph system clears the 'trash' from the body - the waste products, which are too big to gain access to the venous return, to be removed from the body. It is highly recommended that the client is very well hydrated both ahead of the appointment, as well as remaining so for a few days after, to better facilitate clearance of toxins.
Appointments available Monday, Friday and Sunday.

The Mystery of Body Energy Techniques

Our bodies have an electromagnetic energy flow that can not only be felt and palpated, but measured with mechanical devices as well. Kirlian photography makes these fields visible to the naked eye. It can take years to develop the fine art of practicing these methods, as they require a superb sensitivity to the subtle energy flows.
Some examples of energy techniques include Acupuncture, Polarity, and Therapeutic Touch, which is practiced in many hospitals throughout the country by trained nurses. It can be an effective alternative for people who are too sensitive for actual physical touch, and is often used post-surgically. In Chinese Medicine, the thought is that if you first balance the body energy, the physical body will follow.
Energy work is done with very light touch or no touch at all. After receiving energy work you may feel a sense of well being, calmness, or more positive about daily struggles. It can also be combined with massage for a double dose of goodness.
Appointments available Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Shiatsu/Thai Massage

Based on Asian philosophies, the focus is on enhancing the body’s energy flow through many yoga-type stretches and acupressure along the body’s energy meridian pathways. It is a very relaxing and energizing treatment which is done on a mat on the floor, over the clothing. It provides pain relief and is health-promoting, healing from the inside out.
Appointments available two Thursdays each month.
