We all know how quickly pain and tension in our body can enter our minds and impact our quality of life. The Corazon Holistic Health model incorporates massage due to the many health benefits: lowering your heart rate and blood pressure, increasing circulation, energy, improving your immune system, reducing pain and muscle tension, decreasing stress and anxiety, and increasing relaxation. These treatments can decrease the risk for heart disease, tension and migraine headaches, and stress related disorders. Massage therapy is incorporated into the mental health counseling portion of somatic therapies to connect the mind-body connection and bring more awareness to where we store our life experiences in our body. This storage is the beginning of how illness and disease take root in our bodies. Somatic therapies, such as massage, address the often-hidden connection between our mind and our body allowing for true healing.
