Massage therapy is an ancient healing art that benefits everyone - men, women, and children, young and old. There isn't a person who can't benefit in some way with massage therapy.
Natural Concepts Massage & Healing is happy to offer exceptional massage therapy services to the North Fort Myers area. Our massage therapists have years of experience and the best training. Their goal, as is the goal of everyone at Natural Concepts, is to provide a healing touch and to touch the lives of those who enter our place of business.
Quality massage therapy requires training, skill and heart.
A massage therapist is trained extensively in anatomy and physiology. Knowing how the body functions as a unit, how the muscles, tendons and other tissues work together is imperative in providing healing to the recipient. The therapists are trained on how blood and oxygen flow through the body, as well as the lymph drainage channels. In addition to this, they are taught about the different types of muscle tissues, where all of the muscles attach to the bones, and the direction in which the fibers are laid out in each individual muscle. Not all muscles are the same. Each muscle has a different purpose and function. This is why it is vital that you see a certified or licensed massage therapist. An expert in the art of massage therapy will be to help you see the greatest benefit from the treatment you receive.
Besides anatomy and physiology, massage therapists spend most of their education learning practical techniques. They learn basic massage therapy techniques, especially Swedish Massage and Deep Tissue Massage. After their initial training period, which consists of hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of practice, most massage therapists will continue their education. These extra classes will train a therapist to become a specialist in a certain field or simply allow them to broaden their abilities. It's amazing the amount of massage therapy specialties that are out there! These specialties include Reflexology, Prenatal Massage, Sports Massage, Thai Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Hot Stone Massage, and Cupping. It's an extensive list but it's really just the tip of the iceberg!
It is imperative that anyone desiring to become a massage therapist not only have the skill and training, they need compassion as well. Compassion, or heart, is just as important a skill as the hours of practical training received in massage therapy school. Compassion is felt energetically by the client. Trust is based on and built upon this feeling. If the therapist lacks compassion the client will not be able to thoroughly relax and heal. At Natural Concepts in North Fort Myers, we are proud of the level of compassion shown by our massage therapists. They are relatable; they know and understand physical, mental and emotional pain. All of this contributes to a deep connection between the therapist and client, increasing the amount of healing during the massage therapy session. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
