Elizabeth Stone Wellness
Massage Therapy
Dating back to the fifth century B.C., the Greek physician Hippocrates, considered the father of western medicine, described the medical benefits of anointing and massage.  The Greek term Anatripis meaning friction or rubbing, brought about a physiological understanding of massage and wellness, introducing the idea of massaging towards the heart to help regulate the circulatory system.  Previously massage was conducted stroking away from the body by Shamans intending to ward off illness in the form of bad spirits.  Whether you are seeking massage for physical, psychological or spiritual reasons the body-mind connection in undeniable.
       

Our nervous system includes the sympathetic and parasympathetic.  Our sympathetic nervous system is caught in the fight or flight pattern due to stress and excess cortisol levels.  Massage Therapy induces the parasympathetic nervous system to restore balance by increasing dopamine, serotonin, nonadrenaline, oxytocin and endorphins.  Massage balances the chemical soup of our Endocrine system helping to not only reduce stress and pain, but it aids in the reduction of symptoms associated with depression, ADD, hyperactivity, and addiction.
