Massage is a healing therapeutic treatment which has many health benefits in addition to the whole relaxing aspect of massage. Various techniques such as long and short strokes, kneading, circular motions, pressure and vibration are used to manipulate the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Regular massage treatments provide the most benefit for your body. Try to get one each month.

The Benefits of Massage


The manipulation of soft tissue promotes relaxation, well being and stress reduction.

Stress Hormone Reduction

The level of the stress hormone cortisol drops during a massage. Less stress gives us better sleep, a stronger immune system, better focus and an increased energy level.

Pain Relief 

Endorphins, the brain chemicals that are our natural pain relievers and stress reducers, increase during a massage. Headache and migraine sufferers find their headaches are lessened with regular massage.

Circulation is increased providing more oxygen to the tissues of the body, better elimination of toxins, better healing of sports injuries, better healing from illness and better healing after surgery. This includes circulation to the skin.

Fluid Drainage

Circulation is improved which helps drain fluids and reduce fluid retention. I always have ear pain when flying, especially when landing. I had my massage the day before flying home. This was the first time I had no ear pain when flying. I feel the massage helped to drain fluid in the ears which reduced ear pressure.

Relief of Muscle Tension
Tense muscles are loosened and relaxed during a massage.

Better Flexibility

Massage loosen tight muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons allowing the body to be more flexible. Better flexibility helps prevent muscle injuries.


The human touch creates a feeling of well being and being cared for which helps relieve anxiety.

Virus Fighting

A study done at the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center showed that a 45 minute Swedish massage significantly boosted levels NK cells and T lymphocytes, which are virus fighters, in the blood.

Firmer Skin
Regular massage helps to stimulate collagen production adding firmness to the skin.

Moisturized Skin
The oil or massage cream used during a massage conditions the skin.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.
