A 2016 American Massage Therapy Association survey declared: 71% of consumers agree that Massage Therapy should be considered a form of healthcare.
The role of massage therapy in our current culture is interpreted as one to produce relaxation and stress reduction (28% of those going for a massage say they go for relaxation) but 50% go for a massage for medical reasons; pain relief, injury recovery, migraines and headaches, prevention, pregnancy and general well-being.
Due to my personal experience with severe back pain myself, I have a tenderhearted approach to creating a physical release of stress throughout the body and have broadened my own perspective to the needs of every client, giving a unique approach to each client’s individual needs.
As one of my clients has noted: “On one occasion she (Janice) healed a co-worker [of mine] whose doctor had told her she need two weeks of bed rest. She did not miss a day of work after seeing Janice!” Although I do not promise to heal, massage executed properly can result in the body’s ability to heal itself.
In 2003, I graduated from the Chicago School of Massage Therapy and have worked with thousands of clients since that time ranging in both age and levels of health.
I practice traditional and modern modalities and can use hot stones and aromatherapy to enhance relaxation and promote a mind/body/spirit connection that is personal to you. My massage clients claim to have less pain, less stress and a general overall feeling of wellness in a safe and comfortable environment.
