New Year, New Energy!

January 2020

Welcome to the new and improved website for Sage Therapeutic Massage. This has been a LONG time coming. I cannot begin to wrap my head around entering my 20th year in the Massage Therapy Profession. As most of you know, to celebrate I am taking some time to care for my body. Imagine that, practicing what I preach. I won't be gone for long.....just long enough to take some deep breaths, practice some self care and renew my passion for Massage Therapy.


Katie has steadily been growing here at Sage. She's been here 3 years already!  I have actually been seeing her as I am committed to making Therapeutic Massage a more regular part of my self care. She brings amazing energy to her treatments and I love her intuitive style.


Please help me in welcoming our newest therapist to the Sage practice. Christine Haley is long time therapist. She has spent the last 10 years offering wonderful bodywork at Trapp Family Lodge. You can learn more on our "ABOUT" page. She is currently offering late afternoon appointments.


Stay tuned for Online Booking options for each therapist!!


Here's to a HEALTHY & Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you in the office very soon.

Warmly,

Maureen


 


Massage Therapy for Pain Management

September 2019


Why You Should Turn to Massage Therapy for Pain Management

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. You might be wondering how to treat your pain, and massage therapy is one option that is showing promise.

Research continues to support the health benefits of massage therapy for pain management. Find out how massage therapy can help these five painful conditions.

1. Low-back Pain - Back pain is a common neurological ailment in the U.S. Research shows that massage therapy can help decrease pain, reduce disability and lower anxiety/depression in low-back pain sufferers.

2. Fibromyalgia - Studies indicate massage therapy can be a beneficial part of an integrative treatment plan for those with fibromyalgia syndrome by reducing pain, improving quality of life and decreasing anxiety, stiffness, fatigue and more.

3. Post-operative Pain - Post-operative pain can complicate recovery, lengthen hospital stays and interfere with a patient’s return to activities. Recent research indicates massage therapy can be effective for reducing pain intensity/severity and anxiety in patients undergoing surgical procedures.

4. Tension Headaches - According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, tension-type headache is the most common type of headache. Research has shown massage therapy can decrease perceived pain, frequency, duration and intensity for those dealing with tension headaches.

5. Arthritis - Research indicates that 60 minute sessions of Swedish massage once a week for those with osteoarthritis of the knee significantly reduced their pain. In addition, research shows that massage therapy can decrease pain and significantly impact some rheumatoid arthritis patient’s ability to control the mobility of their limbs.
