Long before there were schools and certifications massage was a family past time and a tradition handed down from family to family and healer to healer. Today massage is a profession and a documented form of healing for several conditions. Here are just a few of the health problems that may benefit from massage. Back Pain. More than one study has shown the effectiveness of massage therapy for back pain. In fact, one 2003 study showed it worked better than acupunture or spinal modification for persistent low back pain -- reducing the need for painkillers by 36%. Headache. Another type of pain -- headache -- also responds to massage therapy, as shown by more than one study. Massage therapy can reduce the number of migraines a person has and also improve sleep. Osteoarthritis. In the first clinical trial looking at the effectiveness of Swedish massage for knee osteoarthritis, participants who received a one-hour massage either one or two times a week had improvements in pain, stiffness, and function. The control group had no such change. Cancer. Used as a complement to traditional, Western medicine, massage can promote relaxation and reduce cancer symptoms or side effects of treatment. It may help reduce pain, swelling, fatigue, nausea, or depression, for example, or improve the function of your immune system. Anxiety. A review of more than 12 studies shows that massage helps relieve depression and anxiety. It lowered levels of cortisol by up to 50%, and massage increased levels of neurotransmitters that help reduce depression. We offer Thai Yoga Massage, Couples Massage, Table Massage and the various modalities: deep tissue, sports and swedish massage.
"According to Ayurvedic principles, by understanding oneself, by identifying one's own constitution, and by recognizing sources of doshic aggravation, one can not only follow the proper guidelines to cleanse, purify, and prevent disease, but also uplift oneself into a realm of awareness previously unknown."
-Vasant Lad, M.A.Sc., Ayurvedic physician and Director of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico
At 3 Om we approach yoga (breath, asana and meditation) as it was intended: an individual practice, not a group exercise, each individual must approach yoga based on their personal goals, age and level of health. It is not a one size fits all discipline. However yoga is for everyone. If healing, balance and a pervasive sense of well being are your desires 3 OM will start your practice where it needs to begin based on you. It may be a 7 minute a day routine or perhaps your body is ready for a series of poses that will build strength like nothing you have ever experienced before. The whole system of Yoga is built on three main structures: exercise, breathing, and meditation. The exercises of Yoga are designed to put pressure on the glandular systems of the body, thereby increasing its efficiency and total health. More specifically, through the practice of breath and asana the nerves are soothed and massaged. Internal organs receive massage through twists, allowing for detoxification. The nervous system finds balance and is massaged through the engagement of muscles. The body is looked upon as the primary instrument that enables us to work and evolve in the world, and so a Yoga student treats it with great care and respect. Breathing techniques are based on the concept that breath is the source of life in the body. The Yoga student gently increases breath control to improve the health and function of both body and mind. These two systems of exercise and breathing then prepare the body and mind for meditation, and the student finds an easy approach to a quiet mind that allows silence and healing from everyday stress. Regular daily practice of all three parts of this structure of Yoga produce a clear, bright mind and a strong, capable body.
