BIG NEWS!

May 2021

Spring greetings everyone. I recently celebrated 10 years I have been in Vermont in this office practicing therapeutic massage for this awesome community. As many of you know, I took a short sabbatical in January 2020 to give my body a much deserved break and a chance to evaluate my goals and hopes for Sage Therapeutic Massage. Two months later we found ourselves in a pandemic and now a year later we are slowly emerging back into our “normal” lives. First let me share my profound gratitude to YOU my wonderful clients who have entrusted me with your care, been patient through this process and have always considered my health and safety in addition to your own.

This past year has reminded me how important self- care, stress reduction, connection, and healing is to our bodies and minds. In fact, many of you have shared that “massage is essential” to you. I find myself renewed and inspired to continue on this professional and personal journey of facilitating health and well-being into the lives of others. I want to share some news and updates that are in the works. Let me introduce Sage Collective Therapeutic Massage & Wellness. We are group of local independent massage and bodywork practitioners with the same vision of meeting you on your healing journey and supporting the needs of your body. You can learn more about each practitioner on our "Practitioners" page.

Two weeks ago we moved into our beautiful new office downstairs. Same building, first floor.  We look forward to inviting you into our new space. Our website is updated with our new practitioners and  offers an online booking feature. 


Please help us spread the word and share this news with our community. We love referrals.

Thank you for your continued support and patronage. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Warmly,

Maureen, Katie, Laura & Jess 





 


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.

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
