The effects of massage therapy can be as specific as eliminating pain in the body or as general as an overall feeling of relaxation and well-being.

Massage can help reduce stress or calm anxiety which allows your body to recuperate and heal. For the physically active, it increases blood flow, performance and recovery of muscle fatigue. These benefits are a result of hands on manual manipulation of soft tissue.

Massage can help to reduce stress and anxiety, reduce blood pressure and heart rate, and improve well-being—-all together this promotes our own body’s healing process.

It is hard to live without stress in our busy, technology driven world. But we can find the tools to help reduce stress and its’ effects on us. The best way to do this is to provide time for the body to deeply relax. Our core being needs time to let go and just be.

Our massage is based on traditional Swedish massage techniques. We will also incorporate Shiatsu, Polarity, Reflexology, Hot Stones (full session available upon request), Essential Oils, Acupressure, and Core (working with the Cerebral Spinal Fluid) as your body calls for it. Each session is designed for your individual needs and request. Our education, from The New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics, provided each of us with a degree as a Natural Therapeutic Specialist and we have knowledge of Bach Flower Remedies, Herbalism, Raw Foods, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Homeopathy – please ask us for more information about options for you and your body.

Good Food for thought:

          Sometimes movement, experienced passively through the expert hands of a massage therapist can serve as the first stimulus towards healthy, self-motivated movement, both inwardly and outwardly.  There are few physical illnesses or symptoms of psychological deficiency that cannot be relived or cured by means of affectionate, gentle physical contact such as massage, bodywork, lymph drainage or reflex-zone massage.   (The degree of this physical touch can be very gentle or very deep – it all depends on your individual needs or desires.)

Most bodily processes are dependent on the unimpeded flow of fluids through the various systems of organs and massage & other forms of bodywork can be an effective support for these circulatory flows.  This ‘flow of fluids’ is never-ending and every individual cell in the body must incessantly receive nutrients, oxygen, hormones, antibodies and other immune substances; and a great deal of many harmful substances must be removed.   Through neglect or overuse, our muscles and connective tissue can often harden, become shorter or even become inflamed.  As a result, the posture of the body alters and restricts movement.

If we want to learn how to accept the body as a source of joy and to avoid whatever causes or increases pain, then massage and bodywork can be a valuable key.  They can give us information about ourselves at a depth that no instruction, perception or operation can provide – an inestimable gain!

massage_robRob Dorgan – Kentucky LMT #4717, NCTMB, Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork

I graduated from the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics as a Natural Therapeutics Specialist. I am a licensed and nationally certified Massage Therapist. I like to incorporate natural therapeutic techniques into my massages. I feel this combination promotes healing for the body on many levels—energetic and physical.

I also teach yoga with my partner Steve, (see robandsteveyoga.com for class schedule) and I am a Certified Personal Trainer. My goal is to offer my clients a great therapeutic massage and offer suggestions for improving their overall well- being. I like to use Bach Flower remedies, hot stone treatments, essential oils, passive stretching, reflexology and acupressure points along with Traditional Swedish Massage techniques to improve and maintain healthy bodies.
