Holistic healthcare is an approach to health that honours all aspects of our being: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Massage, in its various forms, can affect us on all of these levels. On a physical level, massage can increase circulation, flexibility and range of motion and facilitate healing. Pain levels are reduced and ease is experienced where there was discomfort.
Massage can also bring about a sense of overall wellbeing and relaxation. Stress is a common factor associated with all disease states. Stress hormones are reduced and endorphins are released with massage. It is not uncommon for people receiving a massage treatment to go to an altered state in which the brain waves change to a frequency associated with meditation and healing. Sometimes in this heightened state, images or messages come through to people that are helpful in their lives.
Barbra Rose attempts to connect with the person on the table, respecting all aspects of their being. She has travelled far and wide to learn from some of the best in each field and has a deep thirst for knowledge about health and how we can live a full and happy life. She feels honoured to be invited into the lives of her patients to assist them in their journey and healing.
