• Mental Health and Massage Therapy

    After completing EMDR and Brainspotting trainings this year, November feels SO peaceful. I have some quiet time to spend time with my family, support my clients and read, and I love it.

    Well, okay, I’m loving everything apart from the fact I’m just got over significant pains that’s resulted in several cancelled and rescheduled appointments and meetings. I had to move a highly anticipated travel because of my pain, and that’s definitely making me grumpy. On the plus side, I can now move without pain thanks to the wonderful care and treatment I got from Progressive Chiropractic’s Massage therapists and chiropractor Dr. Bruce Cooley in Sacramento, California.

    I highly recommend several articles regarding the benefits of massage therapy for mental health.  Dr. Katherine King, Psy.D,’s Massage Therapy for Mental Health (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/lifespan-perspectives/202201/massage-therapy-mental-health), Dr. James Lake, MD’s Massage Therapy for Anxiety and Stress (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/integrative-mental-health-care/201810/massage-therapy-anxiety-and-stress), and Kari Rusnak, MA, LPC, CMHC’s How Massage Therapy can Improve Your Sex Life (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/happy-healthy-relationships/202309/how-a-massage-can-improve-your-sex-life) are just some of the articles to inform people of the immediate and lasting benefits of massage therapy on both mental health and the body. Check them out. 

    In the meantime, here are some articles for you to read and enjoy. As always, enjoy the articles and videos on the website. Please note that these videos/articles are for you to enjoy, ignore if non-relevant to you, and to be shared with others who you believe may enjoy reading them. It is not to replace any medication, therapy or treatment. Always consult your provider before trying anything from these articles or videos. From time to time, I usually send a similar message to my clients just to provide them extra support and to check if they would like to continue to receive these articles or videos. This is my way to communicate the importance of mental health and to support others. Good mental health to you all until next time.
