Massage is important in our treatment here at Jkruse. Because we believe in whole body healing, massage work is integrated in therapy when needed. Even if you don’t want to do talk therapy, massage is an important gift you can give to yourself.
Massage decreases stress by helping to turn “off” the sympathetic nervous system and turn “on” the parasympathetic nervous system. When the body is massaged blood and lymph circulation is increased which moves vital nutrients and oxygen to through out the body to organs and muscles. Serotonin and endorphins are essential for healthy mental functioning; which aids in decreasing depression and anxiety are secreted.
Negative emotions can be stored and felt in our physical body. Your emotions and thoughts have a direct impact on your physical health. Your emotions affect every cell in your body. When you start paying attention to your emotions in relationship to your pain, you may start to notice patterns.
Touch is such an important part of life. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to share it with the world. It has changed my life in so many ways. I know it will impact your life. Sometimes the smallest steps in the right direction end up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take a step.
Overwhelmed by life, in 2007 I decided to change my life. Massage school started me on my journey to find a happy balance in life. The numerous obstacles I faced only made me more passionate to create a solution. I had to piece myself together etherically, spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically.
The complexities of who we are is infinitive. After 1,000s of hours studying, countless classes, and an unbelievable amount of bodywork, I can say there’s not one thing that makes everything better. It’s the combination of techniques effortlessly delivered that shifts the situation. I’ve learned a little bit of as much as possible to customize every treatment for each client to create the desired results.
Agape, Greek for the purest form of unconditional love, is my foundation for assisting people in their healing process. I use love as my foundation for my work. My goal is to harmonize the body as a whole. I was inspired by the stories of thousands of clients I’ve had, whom were prescribed endless amounts of drugs and recommended surgery without being educated on what was wrong with them. My father is a perfect example of this. He believed he had a death sentence when doctors said he had a heart issue, brain tumor, and kidney cyst. He quit his stressful job and got better. My mother had stage 4 breast cancer and naturally shrunk her tumor. I have personally experienced and seen the devastating effects stress has all on aspects of a person’s life. It’s always the little things that are ignored that lead to much larger issues when they aren’t dealt with.
I want to assist anyone who finds themselves hopelessly lost in a chaotic mess, by shining my light into their darkness. I want to help you find your spark and light up your own path. Life doesn’t have to wear you out. Let me show you the beauty of experiencing life.
