Human touch has immense power.
Touch is the very first language we understand. Later in life, a caring touch triggers the same response to that primitive language, and we really do feel "I am cared for" and "my needs are met"
The intention behind touch is paramount.
When a therapist simply moves through the technical motions of giving a massage, the message received by the body and mind is clinical, and reaps the medical benefits of relaxation and pain reduction. But physical contact with sincere caring, compassion and understanding affects us at a much deeper level, and the healing power of our bodies engages fully. Expression and communication of this genuine caring through intention is the goal of Tender Loving Care Massage Therapy.
With specialized training in massage for Elders, Chronically Ill, Trauma survivors, Pre-Natal clients, and CranioSacral Therapy from the Upledger Institute, Tender Loving Care aspires to deliver compassion and understanding through a unique, sincerely caring touch.
