Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
Insomnia related to stress
Myofascial pain syndrome
Soft tissue strains or injuries
Temporomandibular joint pain
At Kunde Institute, our licensed massage therapist offers following services on Saturdays and Sundays at our Daly City location only:
LYMPHATIC MASSAGE addresses the fluids in the body that bathe all the cells and tissues. It is an important component of the immune system by removing toxins and maintaining fluid balance and good circulation of the lymphatic fluid. It can be used as maintenance for optimal health on a regular basis. LYMPHEDEMA is the condition of stagnation in the tissue often caused by cancer treatments or surgery, injury or of a congenital nature. MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE is necessary to move the lymph through the system via the lymph nodes so is crucial for those suffering the consequences of cancer treatment.
CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY is another area of focus for treating stress related conditions. Michele uses the BioDynamic approach to this bodywork allowing the cranial bones to find freedom and fluids within the spinal column to flow unimpeded. This is deeply relaxing and many say it “re-sets” them emotionally and mentally. It is a hands-on technique similar to Reiki utilizing deep focus, attention and space for the receiver to do the healing.
FULL BODY MASSAGES are also available using warm oils to penetrate the deep tissues and mobilize the joints for better movement.
