The first time she received a massage Heidi knew she wanted to help people ease their pain and relax the stressed. Heidi attended Everest Institute and has been a professional masseuse for 4 1/2 years. Because she applies a firmer pressure with plenty of kneading, her massage style is best described as deep tissue relaxation. She also specializes in relaxing Swedish massage and treatment work for the active and injured, as well as hot stone and pregnancy massages. Heidi’s philosophy is that massage isn’t merely a luxury; it’s a way to stay healthy.
Some benefits of message include decreased depression, increased circulation, and tissue regeneration. The release of endorphins-amino acids during a massage also work as the body’s natural painkiller to relax injured, tired, and over used muscles.
