  • May.....Happy Mental Health Awareness Month!

    The Science Behind Massage and Mental Health We hear everyone talking about mental health and different ways to maintain a healthy mind. Massage is a common go-to (and a great 1, might I add!), however, do we really understand WHY? Yes, there is a science behind it! Relaxation can come in both psychological and physiological forms. PSYCHOLOGICAL relaxation refers to the reduction of in stress hormones release (cortisol, adrenaline, noradrenaline). A reduction in theses hormones will allow the individual to feel a reduction in anxiety, stress and depression. PHYSIOLOGICAL relaxation refers to the increase in tissue flexibility, elasticity, and pliability. A reduction in musculoskeletal tension can allow the individual to feel a reduction in pain and increase their range of movement and flexibility. Endorphins are released during times of happiness and relaxation. Low levels of endorphins are linked to negative thoughts, anxiety, stress and depression. Massage can stimulate an increase in the release of endorphins through stimulating the autonomic nervous system. An increase in levels of endorphins such as serotonin and dopamine can leave the individual feeling positive, enthusiastic, and relaxed. Massage can decrease the release of cortisol. Cortisol is a stress related hormone released during times of threat. High levels of cortisol are linked to feelings of anxiety, stress and depression. Massage can reduce the production of cortisol by promoting relaxation. A reduction in the levels of cortisol can leave the individual feeling calm, relaxed, and happy. Massage can increase tissue temperature. An increase tissue temperature is achieved through stimulating an increase in blood circulation. An increase in blood circulation is gained through vasodilation which occurs when the smooth muscles surrounding blood vessels relax which widens the vessels. An increase in blood circulation can warm the tissues allowing them to become more relaxed. An increase in tissue temperature can lead to an increase in flexibility, tissue elasticity, and decreased pain. So, if you managed to read all of that, hopefully you now have a better understanding about why massage works and how it is SCIENTIFICALLY beneficial to our mental health. If you are still on the fence about making massage a regular priority in your life, just take the leap! Book 1 appointment and I promise that you won’t be disappointed!

    TESTIMONIALS Not sure if my healing services will fit your needs? Take a look at what some of my past clients have said about their experiences with me and explore the many ways I have helped them. My wellness journey with Marquita started in March of 2016. I had a terrible bout of sciatica that started in January 2016. I had done everything I thought possible. Two Dr. Visits who prescribed 3 types of pain meds, physical therapy, acupuncture and I even made adjustments to my food intake, nothing worked. I was in excruciating pain day and night. I couldn’t walk 25 feet (really). I was referred to the Director of the Soma Institute who reached out to his former students via Facebook and Marquita contacted me the same day. We booked right away. She came to my home and after the first visit I was feeling relief. I stopped Pain meds, and used ice, heat and rest. We continued bi-weekly sessions and then went to monthly appointments. About three weeks after the first visit, I was back to my regular routine. She is my lifesaver/Angel and "bone crusher". I am so happy she has opened Holistic Bodywork and Wellness. I'm sending all positives vibes for you and your business! God Bless.... SB-2021 SB AMAZING! Marquita worked out the tension in my back and wow, my back felt 100% better. LP My experience was fantastic! Marquita was very thorough, the room was decorated beautifully, and the music was very soothing. I've already booked another massage! TM I normally would have a massage twice a month before the pandemic. I was looking for a massage therapist to help alleviate discomfort from arthritis in my neck and lower back. My experience with bodywork and wellness was exactly what I needed. Marquita was kind and thorough in identifying my needs. The massage was excellent and I quickly decided she would be my regular massage therapist. VM I had the most intriguing experience ever 3 weeks ago at holistic bodywork and wellness with Ms. Marquita. Marquita was very professional, her suite was clean, neat, and calming atmosphere. I love that she only allows one client at a time which allows for privacy and enhances your focus. I felt fantastic when I left. If you want a true holistic and body experience, I recommend Marquita Powell. I have my next appt scheduled😊 HR I had such an amazing experience with Marquita! She did such a awesome job especially on my neck and back. Thank you so much and definitely will be coming back! LG ADD A TESTIMONIAL Name Email Review Would you recommend us to your friends?
