Living with Challenges

I have been doing massage therapy now for 17 years and some of my most rewarding experiences have been working with people who have health challenges.


As a massage therapist I spend a lot of time thinking about the body holistically and about wellness, but what about illness?

Massage works with the mind, body and the systems that help us relax and work at our best. Often we need our strength and reserves to overcome illness and massage comes in handy.

It is a great help to people who are trying to cope with an illness such as breast cancer, or Crohn’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, etc.

Will massage fix a health condition? I don’t think so. There are other avenues for that. I think we do know that massage helps people cope with stress. It gives them a chance to meet many challenges in their lives - and achieve their best.
