Therapeutic Massage and the Stress Response:
Frequent or unrelenting stress can damage your body, ultimately leading to discomfort and pain. Stress is a contributing factor in most disease processes.
Massage therapy provides an immediate and natural remedy to the stress response (fight or flight) by helping to:
lower your heart rate and blood pressure
improve your circulation of blood and lymph fluid (thereby improving immunity and detoxification)
increase metabolism and enhance digestion
heighten you sense of well-being
cause anxiety levels to drop by encouraging deeper, fuller breathing and release of endorphins
relieve chronic or acute pain to accelerate the healing process and prevent re-injury
In addition, massage therapy is a necessary component for Sports Performance at any level. Currently working with various professional and Olympic athletes, Roberto knows that Professional Trainers insist their athletes receive massage REGULARLY. If you or anyone you know are attempting to enhance their wellness and fitness through time at the gym and/or competition, massage is key. Therapeutic massage will reduce recovery time and increase the benefit of each workout and/or training session.
Touch for Health Kinesiology:
Touch For Health (TFH) combines sports muscle kinesiology and Chinese Five Elements acupuncture/ touch to bring the body into harmonious balance.
Using gentle and highly effective techniques, Touch For Health allows us to balance the acupuncture meridians, test for food allergies and nutritional deficiencies. We restore muscular and structural balance (alleviating pain and discomfort), decrease emotional stress, neurological disorders, clear mental/emotional blocks and more.
TFH having been extremely effective in his own healing process, Roberto went on to complete the Touch For Health Synthesis training through the Touch For Health Kinesiology Association of America so that he would have these skills available to his clients and students.
