What clients are saying:
Last weekend I had my first massage ever with Kristen at Relaxation Works. I am 28 years old and I was WAY overdue. Kristen spent time explaining her background and going into what my hour would entail. She did a great job of preparing me on what to expect and the massage was amazing. I felt totally relaxed and my entire body felt better after only one hour. My neck, my back, and my shoulders felt great and I work out every day for over an hour a day…she was great! — M.B.
I am always looking to create a better experience for each and every one of you, from the first time you visit relaxation-works.com to your 100th massage treatment. No matter how small or big the change evaluate, improve and innovate is my goal.
I’ve created a mobile app that will get you some great savings. It will always be changing so check in often.
88% of smart phone users are searching for local businesses (that’s you).
60% of you are browsing the internet using your mobile phone.
That’s a lot of you looking for a massage and frustrated that you can’t find one.
I’ve looked online using my computer, tablet and smartphone and I can’t locate any other massage therapy establishment in a 15 mile radius of Taunton, MA that offers mobile pages for their business (I am sure that will change after they read this blog post).
You can also scan this QR code with your phone to go to it directly.
So go and check it out, grab your Karma check-in deal and save.
As always, I am listening. Please email me with any questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stress can be mind boggling to understand. We know it’s real because we can feel it and we (I am raising my hand right now) know that de stressing and introducing relaxation techniques is the BEST way to relieve stress. But just what is happening underneath our skin, at the cellular level when we become stressed? If you are like me then you are curious too. As a licensed massage therapist for quite a few years now there is one thing I see time and time again. Massage therapy can help with reducing stress and improve mood. We are just now finding out what is going on with our bodies when we receive massage, Scientific research is showing us how stimulating the sympathetic nerve system effect lowering our blood pressure. The Massage Therapy Foundation is a pioneer who is making that possible.
A few more great stress relievers are practicing yoga and meditation as well as listening to soothing music. I have experienced this myself and have seen it in my own clients. Often times the music I play in my massage treatment room is composed to effect our brain waves and lower our heart beat. That’s why I enjoy playing Art Lindemanis’s music, he is also a massage therapist based in NY and creates amazing music for the healing arts.
There truly is something to be said about the mind body connection. Stress forms in our minds first. This can happen when we worry about things like taxes, our children, the economy, what others think of us, our safety and so on. Finding ways to shut off or tune out our worrisome thoughts is for some a learned art. For me massage therapy was the ticket, then yoga and then guided meditation. It didn’t all happen at one and it certainly didn’t happen over night. In a time span of two years I began to see my body heal itself.
I get very person in this audio and talk about a life changing moment in my life that has lead me on this journey of healing and really getting my message out about encouraging others to find stress relief for themselves.
