Clinical Massage Therapy and Trigger Point Therapy
Massage and Trigger Point Therapy for PTSD
Many veterans returning from serving our country suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Most of these brave men and women are being treated with mental health procedures. However, research has demonstated that massage therapy can be a major asset in helping the veteran.
PTSD is heightened by the hormones cortisol and adrenaline.
This creates a "Fight or Flight" process keeping the veteran hyper alert, nervous, and always ready for some bad event. These factors interrupt sleep; cause depression, and creates pain in muscles throughout the body.
One of the major outcomes of massage therapy is improving mood hormones such as dopamine, melatonin and serotonin. These hormones help calm the mind.
Veterans who have experienced massage therapy with me indicate that they sleep better, are more focused, have less body pain, and feel relaxed and able to lead a more normal life. they are more apt to talk about their fears and nightmares. The vet stores these negative feelings and experiences in his or her body. Massage, with its relaxation and calming influence often helps the vet dump these feelings and he leaves feeling more relaxed and calm, ready to resume his or her normal life.
Veterans receive free services from me.
It is my way of saying thank you for keeping my family and community safe.
