Stimulate Healing and Regeneration by Adding the BioMat to Any Service

The BioMat is a high-quality infrared heating mat used in healing practices all over the world. 
The BioMat has been shown to:

  • treat chronic pain
  • support core body temperature
  • speed the healing of joints and tissue
  • improve circulation
  • detoxify
  • boost the immune system
  • promote deep relaxation
  • improve sleep and mood
  • reduce stress and anxiety

It is an excellent complement to any wellness treatment. FIR was discovered by NASA to be the safest, most beneficial wave of light. It is an electronic wave which, because of its length, can penetrate into our bodies 6-8 inches and generate frictional heat which, in turn, stimulates our cells to move.  This cellular movement stimulates healing and regeneration of body functions such as circulation, detoxification, and immune function. Ask about adding the BioMat to your next session when booking your appointment!

An addition to my practice in massage : Oncology Massage

The time for our continuing education courses has arrived!  I am really excited for my decision to take a course in Oncology Massage at The Pittsburgh School of Massage.
Oncology massage is an individualized massage created to support and  specifically care for someone who is currently in treatment for cancer or for someone who had a past experience with cancer treatments as well.  Presently I enjoy working with oncology clients by doing energy work and/or reflexology.  I have found this work to be so beneficial for my clients so far but I am eager to be able to provide yet another type of healing touch through their time of treatment. I know it can be very difficult to find a positive light in such a difficult time in their lives, but our work at the center gives these clients a haven to come to where touch is made with special attention and care according to their specific needs.

Here are some wonderful benefits of Oncology Massage: 

  • deep relaxation
  • restored hope
  • reduced post-treatment fatigue
  • improved appetite
  • decreased depression
  • less pain
  • positive distraction
  • a sense of peace and calm
  • decrease in nausea

Recently, I found a wonderful review for our work at The Pittsburgh Center for Complimentary Health and Healing with an oncology client on Yelp...it sums up the experience and benefits for clients with cancer so nicely. I thought I would share. 

"This place has been a god-send for my mom. She is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer and their special treatments for oncology and chemo patients are incredible.  Not only do they offer her relaxation, but they lift her spirits to the point that I truly believe it is helping her make it through this.  They offer various therapies such as oncology massage, reiki, and cellular expansion which I believe help ease the side effects of chemotherapy...."  

This quote from a client's son at our center is  so good to hear.  I look forward to furthering my education so I can be a bigger part of healing for this special kind of client at our center.  It is so nice to be a part of such comfort and healing in someone's life. It gives back...it gives me healing as well, which I am so grateful for in my life.
