We are excited to announce our massage schedule will re-open back up October 14, 2020. We unfortunately have been closed since March 2020 due to Covid-19. We tried to re-open in May but had a short lived run with staffing issues. We are currently in the middle of training our newest team members to assure you the best care. Our mission is to having your feel your best as fast as your body allows. We strive for five star reviews and we won't sell you something your body won't need. Our service menu has slightly changed along with our prices. Please check out our online menu for further information or give us a call.
Did you see we now offer acupuncture and auricular therapy?!
Acupuncture is a drug free pain relief alternative. Thin needles are gently inserted into pressure points of the body to relieve and boost wellbeing. It is a process that last anywhere from 30 to 45 mins. Auricular therapy is magnets placed along side of your pressure points of the ears and can be worn for multiple days at a time.
Acupuncture has been proven to relieve back pain, neck pain, TMJD, carpal tunnel, osteoarthritis, knee pain, headaches and even migraines. It is safe with no side effects, and can be combined with other types of pain treatments. It is a wonderful alternative to pain medication and it produces real results!
Which Essential Oils Can You Use in Pregnancy?
Many mums-to-be enjoy aromatherapy and want to carry on with it to help them ease the aches and pains or other symptoms of pregnancy. If you want to carry on with your aromatherapy massage or routine, remember:
As long as your pregnancy is going well, it’s fine for you to use:
Do you know someone who does a good deep tissue massage and who is looking for work? Please let them know we are looking for a team mate! We would love to have an acupuncturist as well! Pass the word!
The holidays are upon us again and although we all love this time of year, sometimes the pressure we put ourselves under to have the ‘perfect’ celebrations can cause so much stress and anxiety that we wonder if it’s all really worth it!
It’s no surprise that according to the American Psychological Association, women are most at risk from holiday stress. No matter how equal the sexes claim to be, it’s still the case that women tend to take charge of most of the organisation of holiday arrangements, whether it’s planning, buying and preparing food, decorating the home, buying the gifts or just organising who goes where. Women also find it harder to relax once the holidays are here and often deal with the build-up of stress (and any family tensions that happen over the holiday periods) by over eating and other not so healthy coping mechanisms.
Holiday PressuresAlthough it’s true that most of us claim to look forward to the celebrations at this time of year, we can also get stressed out about them. Men and women both feel under pressure to make the holidays ‘perfect’ for their families, which can lead to arguments and stress. There’s pressure to attend work parties, see friends and not leave anyone out. Money worries add to the mix –celebrating isn’t always cheap – and people also admit that they can’t always switch off from the workplace when they are enjoying festivities, finding themselves stressing about tasks they’ve left behind.
Some of us are just working way too hard to enjoy the holidays – 31% of people admitted that they were stressed because they couldn’t get enough time off from the day job to properly enjoy themselves. So – with all this stress build up, you need an escape valve!
How to Beat Holiday StressDon’t resort to comfort eating to relieve feelings of anxiety or stress. It feels good at the time and it’s so hard to resist with all the delicious food and invitations to parties that inevitably come up at this time of year, but you’ll just feel sick and bloated if you overdo the candy or delicious party food. Eat whatever you like but try not to eat when you’re feeling tense because being stressed actually affects your digestion and can lead to you feeling even worse. Take some time out for yourself if you feel the pressure of organising (and paying for) everything start to creep up on you. Just because it’s Thanksgiving, or Christmas, it doesn’t mean you have to spend the whole time dealing with the needs of the rest of your family, friends or workplace. You can’t give anything if your own well is empty so treat yourself to a massage instead; not only will a good massage make you feel relaxed and ready to face another round of gift shopping, but it stimulates feel good hormones, boosts your circulation and can even help boost your immune system which is an absolute must if you’re going to be socialising with friends, family and workmates more than usual.
Doing something that’s just for you will help improve your mood so that you won’t find it so irritating when people make holiday-related demands on you at this time of year. You’ll feel much more able to deal with fighting kids, annoying relatives and a partner who is too busy watching TV to help you with the washing up if you’ve had your fill of relaxing massage before the holiday season kicks off. It’s your gift to yourself – and as they say in the commercials – you’re worth it!
Sept 2019 I Angie was diagnoised with breast cancer. I would of never of guessed I would ever have this. No one in my family has ever had it. I stayed in shape and for the most part ate well. I found out mine was hormone related. Hmmm never really had any hormone issues. With my amazing palpation skills I found my lump. I went in May for a mammogram they found nothing but a cyst. Went back in June and still nothing. September I decided to call in for an Ultrasound. Sure enough I had cancer. Why not just have an ultrasound and just skip the mammograms all together. Lucky me I found it early. Stage 1. Though stage 1 I still had to have chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. So sad to say this but I am not sure when I can come back hands on massage. I want to thank everyone of my clients for still coming in to the office and utilizing my amazing staff. I feel so blessed to have such a great team to take care of you all while I am away for so long. While away, I am still scheduling the staff and doing office work. With the chemo I have been too weak, tired and my risk of getting sick is very high. So touching is not Dr. approved. Please ladies and gents please check yourself often. The earlier the better. This road I am on has been far from the ideal vacation from work. If you have any questions about what you feel please seek a Dr. immediately, Don't wait. When you find it early you have a way better survival rate. There is a cure at an early stage like mine. I feel blessed.

2019 will be a great year for Hands of Healing Touch.
We are adding a new massage therapy treatment room making it a total of 4 rooms. The room addition will help us better treat your needs to feeling better. We might even be able to hire on another qualified rockstar to allow more schedule flexibility! Do you know someone?! We really strive on quality of our services more than quanity. No worries there. We work hard to keep us over four stars on our reviews. Thank you for reviewing us and referring us!
We also all carry warm Himalayan salt stones in our treatment rooms. We keep them warm all the time and love using them. We can add on hot stones to any massage. You will love these stones! Another thing our office has in each room is our very cool Ashley Black Facia Blasters. Ask us to use them it's a free add on!
For retail products we carry RAD Rollers. They simply are the best on the market for rolling muscles at home. We use them everyday for our own personal self treatment. Every house should have one of these great buys. Come try them out before buying. They can be a little pricy but we refuse to sell junk and these bad boys will last a lifetime. Plus if you find you don't like them I will buy them back... but you will love them.
Oh and our NRT sessions are now at this time $85! My normal rate $125. I really wanted a more affordable way to heal you. Note NRT is not a massage it is a treatment in it's self. If you really want to be fixed I suggest you do this first and then add a massage to it after. Helen and Angie are the only people in the office who are offering full body NRT. Emily is offering lower body NRT until she can get into more classes in 2019.
We have the ability to do massage add ons but only if you call us. Our MindBody app is a little behind on the add on capability. We are sure that will soon change. MindBody is our online booking system and they make everything stress free on your end and ours. Oh and to mention they help us with our onine gift certificates sales. It's so easy to buy a gift. No need to stop by anymore, unless you just want to say hi!
Angie still is not taking on new massage clients. However if you are in need of an NRT or Medical Cupping session call for a consultation and she will do her best to find a spot if she can. Otherwise try Helen for NRT she does the same great work. Emily will be on board to a full body NRT session by the end of the year if not sooner!
Sunday massage will be on and off. You will just have to fish for the openings. Jessica is our normal Sunday rock star but she is a PTA student and has studies. She will do her best to open as many as she can handle while being a straight A student. Must I say this girl is strong! Come try her out on Saturdays for sure.
Good news with Mirra! She will soon have some more time slots open for you starting in Jan. We have been waiting on the new room addition so we can add her.
We hope to see you soon!
Exciting changes are happening at our small little massage office. We have a few new people to our addition. Mirra Greenway, Helen Humphreys, and Emily Stuart.

Don't worry we hire qualified therapist who enjoy working with focused issues. Everyone here has a passion to help in a way that can be customized to your liking. Hope to see you on our books!
