Notes from a conference at Longwood Research Center at Harvard Medical School
“Stress-related health problems are responsible for up to 80% of visits to the doctor and account for the third highest health care expenditures, behind only heart disease and cancer. But as few as 3% of doctors actually talk to patients about how to reduce stress. Mind-body practices like yoga and meditation have been shown to reduce your body’s stress response by strengthening your relaxation response and lowering stress hormones like cortisol. Yoga has been shown to have many health benefits, including improving heart health and helping relieve depression and anxiety.”

Neuromuscular & Swedish Massage

Massage is a variety of pressures applied to the superficial tissue of the body, by hands and arms in changing movements or strokes such as – effleurage, petrissage and tapotement. This is done by mild to deep pressure and movement, stretching of the muscles and underlying fascial tissue of the body, accompanied by oils or lotions – coconut, nut or essential oils and lotions that are unscented and hypoallergenic with a rich, luxurious glide to them, nourishing the skin and hydrating the muscles. Some methods may include using Hot Salt Stones, as we do, with a CBD oil – under .03%. The techniques are varied depending on the outcome desired from these sessions.

Nutrient & Vitamin Therapy

IV Therapy is valuable for a multitude of reasons. Vitamins, when taken orally, are only absorbed 10-20 percent and then excreted since they must go through the digestive system. By feeding vitamins, minerals and other natural substances straight into the bloodstream, the digestive system is avoided and 100% of the nutrients are absorbed. We can safely distribute larger doses into the bloodstream that would not otherwise be tolerated by the stomach or digaestive system. Our shots, or intramuscular medications are a quick and easy way to give you the boost you need, from energy to general health.
