Michelle Wallace RMT
Halifax Swedish Massage
In Western society we are not taught to listen to our bodies. We are taught, instead, to trust pills and well- educated professionals who are, instead, the experts. To educate ourselves is to become empowered. For, then, can we be at the forefront of our own health, taking better control and responsibility for what our bodies are telling us. The benefits of massage are numerous. It can lessen depression and anxiety, relieve tension headaches, relieve low back pain and improve range of motion therefore easing medication dependence. Massage pumps oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation. It relaxes and softens injured,tired and overused muscles. Massage releases endorphins - amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller. Massage also promotes quality sleep, lowers blood pressure and relaxes the body.
Any muscular ailment, such as tension headaches, tendonitis, painful knots or the aftermath of a whiplash can be treated with massage therapy. Michelle is a graduate of the Canadian College of Massage & Hydrotherapy of which she is trained in the general Swedish massage method. Our bodies are trying to tell us something, if only we're willing to listen. She is part of the Massage Therapists’ & Holistic Practitioners’ Association of the Maritimes.
