Shoulder to Head Massage

At The Gateway a relaxing shoulder, head and face massage, can be experienced in quiet surroundings. Shoulder to Head Massage incorporates other healing modalities such as Reiki, Acupressure, Indian head massage. The aforementioned, and other modalities,  use different terminology, yet they all share a common concept –  life force energy.

Shoulder to Head Massage focuses on, and can enhance various general states such as neck and shoulder stiffness, improved blood circulation, muscle relaxation. Good results are achieved with headaches, migraines, neuralgia, digestive problems. Shoulder to Head Massage can improve concentration, mental-emotional stress, anxiety – the list is almost endless.

The body’s innate healing system is stimulated as massage affects pulsing rhythms of cerebrospinal fluids, which transmit healing messages around and through the body. Muscle tension is released, toxins are dispersed, which in turn reduces mental and physical stress, improving blood flow to the brain.

Shoulder to Head Massage sessions release tension, stress and tones muscles. It is enjoyable and encourages relaxation and deep breathing, which in turn triggers the release of endorphins – the “feel good” chemicals, creating a sense of calm and contentment. Benefits are felt throughout the body, as with most touch therapies.

Regular sessions at The Gateway, preferably on a weekly basis, have  cumulative and beneficial effects on ones mental state, to the degree that one is able to deal with challenges and problems more easily on a day to day basis, which in turn enables the body’s own self-healing mechanism to work more effectively, resulting in a state of homeostasis.
