Massage Therapy
Does Massage Help Back Pain?
There is a lot of published research that demonstrates massage can help back pain. The American Massage Therapy Association points to the research to support the belief that therapeutic massage is effective for persistent low back pain and able to provide long-lasting benefits. The benefits of back massage include the following:
  • Reduces or eliminates pain
  • Relaxes tight muscles
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Assists with easing feelings of stress and anxiety
  • Speeds up the return to normal activities
  • Supplements conventional treatments, like taking anti-inflammatory pain relievers and applying ice or heating pads
"The 60 [min] massage with the end being the singing bowls l; is truly one of the best experiences I have ever had. The vibration from the bowls is felt internally and in my opinion when finished I feel completely reset and 100 relax. Highly recommend" ~Rebecca N.

"To rest on the Sound Cloud and allow the Peter Hess sound bowls reset my internal frequencies by Gina is beyond description with words.  Having been a massage therapist myself many years ago, I struggle to truly relax and experience the experience.  The way Gina uses the sound bowls, allows me to truly relax, be in the moment, and benefit from the reset.  The only bad part, which is extremely bad for me, is that she is not in Shawano.  But I will treat myself to a reset on a semi-monthly basis if I can figure out work and the drive.  Thank you Gina." ~ NEVA Raelene AKA Rae VOGT

500 RYT, Peter Hess Sound Massage Practitioner
A friend’s recommendation brought Karen to yoga and began her practice of now, more than two decades. She began teaching more than nine years ago. Karen believes you should always feel better when you leave a yoga class, than when you began. She loves the mindfulness and the community that yoga creates and that there is always something for her to continue learning. Karen also teaches yin yoga and practices Peter Hess Sound massage with therapeutic grade singing bowls, which she will be incorporating in all her classes at the Balance Soundspace. When she’s not teaching, Karen loves to travel, go hiking, kayaking and spending time with her dog (or anyone’s dog for that matter).
