Restorative Yoga with Nancy Hamory

restorative yogaRestorative yoga is a therapeutic form of yoga practice, that incorporates gentle poses combined with breath work. It is intended to allow you to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation, by slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching.
The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body, and is an excellent antidote to stress.

Restorative yoga provides healing for the body and the mind, and is especially useful when you need to eliminate fatigue and stress that result from your daily activities. It can also help you recover from illness and injury or overcome emotional depression and anxiety that are caused by traumatic events.

It is known that restorative yoga can activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which enables automatic control of the body. As such, the regular nervous system will be at rest, and the muscles will become more relaxed. Constant practice of restorative yoga will make your body less vulnerable to stress-related illnesses and help you achieve optimal health.

Small group sessions are offered on Wednesday mornings at 10:30am and Monday evenings at 6:45pm.

Class size is kept small, with the feel of a semi-private lesson, allowing personalization and one-on-one instruction.

Please call 704.997.5966 to reserve your spot today!

Health Benefits of Massage and Wellness

There are many more benefits to the body, mind and spirit that massage therapy provides, beyond relaxation and rejuevanation. The obvious whole body benefits include reducing stress and pain, decreasing depression, increasing circulation, attentiveness,neuromuscular function and vigor, enhancing the immune function, improving sleep, mood, body image and lifestyle habits and increasing physical well-being. What you may not know is the many other benefits on other systems of the body:

Muscular System and Connective Tissue: Relieves muscle tension, soreness and fatigue (Note: a fatigued muscle recuperates 20% after 5 minutes of rest and 100% after 5 minutes of massage), increases range of motion, improves performance, balance and posture, lengthens and re-educates muscles memory (neuromuscular re-education), tones weak muscles and reduces the appearance of cellulite and improves scar formation.

Nervous and Endocrine System: Reduces stress, anxiety and stress hormone levels (Cortisol, Norepinephrine, Epinephrine, etc..), increases good hormone levels (Dopamine, Serotonin), changes brain wave activity to promote relaxation, decreases pain and depression.

Cardiovascular System: Improves circulation and dilates blood vessels, decreases blood pressure, promotes removal of waste products from the tissues, replenishes nutritive materials to tissues, reduces heart and pulse rate, increases oxygen saturated blood, and increases red and white blood cell count.

Lymphatic and Immune Systems: Promotes lymph circulation, reduces inflammation and edema (swelling), increases lyphocyte count, and increases the number and function of natural killer cells (strengthens immune system).

Testimonials

“Thank you Jackie! You are truly a natural healer. You always know exactly where my problem areas are and you ALWAYS help me when I think I can’t or won’t feel better. I am so very thankful for having found you!”

Samantha is amazing! She helped me through Massage Therapy to prepare for my second marathon, which greatly improved my performance. Both before and after my events, massage with Samantha are a regular part of my training as it has made a huge difference for me.
– John

I just returned home after receiving a terrific massage. Brian Millen has been my therapist for about 2 years now. Honestly, he gives the best massage I’ve ever had! (I’ve been getting regular massages for 25 years) I urge everyone to schedule an appointment with him. He’s professional, well trained, and very nice!
– Nancy T.

“What a wonderful place! Jackie and Samantha have treated myself, my husband and my two children…they are apart of our regular routine, they keep us feeling great and “running smoothly”. You ladies are THE BEST!”
– Lisa

“Caring, compassion and skill are the best ways to describe a session with Samantha. You have helped me reclaim an active, healthy life again after my accident, Thank you!”
– MM

Excellent experience! Brian obviously enjoys his work and brings great therapeutic skill to the table. His attitude, personality and naturally comforting demeanor made it easy to relax and get the most from the session. I would highly recommend him to a friend or family member (even if they typically preferred a female therapist).
– Paul G.

“I suffer from chronic back and neck pain from a car accident I was involved in over 20 years ago. I have been to doctors and physical therapists for many years. It was not until a friend had suggested that I try Massage Therapy with Jackie Murray, for pain that seemed to be increasing. After one session, I had immediate relief, and have continued to see Jackie on a regular basis, as I feel the best I have felt in over 20 years. Jackie is so knowledgable and caring and a huge asset to my life.”
– Karen

“……a great therapist is hard to find, I will refer everyone I know to you…”
– Mark

I can’t get by without regular massages by Brian Millen. Always courteous and kind, always impeccably professional; he has earned my total trust. He not only takes care of all the accumulated stress and fatigue stored in my muscles, but his therapeutic touch has helped me regain lost motion in my shoulder. And besides fixing my my neck and back pain, he regularly astonishes me by finding sore places I haven’t even told him about! He works magic with his knowledge of the anatomy, and his capable hands. –Teresa W.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Extremely great ambiance! I’ve been going to Brian for almost 2 years. He is excellent!! Highly recommend!!!

She has continued her classroom hours since being licensed, with hands-on training in Sports Massage, Kinesio Taping, further Neuromuscular Therapy and Postural Assessment Training, Massage for Arthritic Clients, Hot Stone Massage, Reiki, Prenatal, and so on. Her practical skills have developed by practicing in various different settings, including a clinical setting with a local Doctor of Chiropractic.

Jackie has developed a reputation in the area as a specialist for treating soft tissue, chronic pain cases with Neuromuscular and Deep Tissue Techniques. She has created a strong following of clients through continued referrals, both from clients as well as other professionals in the Lake Norman Region such as Chiropractors and Physical Therapists.

Jackie continues to be committed to her clients, to help them improve their overall health and well being through various massage modalities, as well as incorporating other supports and Wellness models. In addition, she is a Level II Reiki Practitioner, and organizes a small group for a weekly Mindfulness Meditation practice. She treats clients with warm, caring compassion, listening carefully to their concerns and needs, and develops a treatment plan together with her client. Jackie has treated clients from the young age of 4 through 84.

Originally from Buffalo, NY and South Florida, Jackie has lived in the Lake Norman area for over 14 years. She has 3 teenage children, who have always been actively involved in strenuous sports.

Charlie Shiflett

Charlie Shiflett

Charlie is a graduate of The Southeastern Institute, where his training in Neuromuscular Therapy and Bodywork was clinically focused. He has since furthered his education earning the certification in Medical Massage. He has worked in various clinical settings since receiving his license, and uses extensive skills, knowledge, and experience to customize each session to the client’s needs. His main goal when working with clients is listening to the clients concerns, understanding their needs, and using that insight along with the challenge of “hearing” what the body needs as he works with each individual.

Charlie works from a place of deep compassion, empathy and understanding, as it has been his own experience with holistic medicine and alternative healing therapies that helped him through four difficult years of battling cancer. In fact, holistic medicine and alternative therapies provided the first sense of relief from his pain and discomfort of the disease. He has always had a heart and “calling” for serving others, and wanted to “give back” after surviving the ordeal himself. Charlie spends countless hours furthering his knowledge and skills about the dysfunctions of the human body and how he can best apply his experience and knowledge to help and ultimately increase healing in his clients.
