Anyone who has ever held a baby, received a hug from a child or friend, experienced the transcendental bliss after a massage, or the simple power of connecting with someone with a handshake, can attest to the energetic connection between the two.  

Touch can vary with the perception and incidence but professional touch includes:  Manual Deep Tissue Lymphatic Drainage, Therapeutic Massage, Bodywork, Trigger Point, Myofascial, Craniosacral,  Acupressure, Chiropractic Adjustments, and Healing Touch [1] which promotes the Reduction of stress, Improving anxiety and depression, Decreasing pain, Immune function, Enhancing recovery from surgery, Deepening spiritual connections, Supporting cancer care, Research continues to build the evidence. [2]  

The Worron Family Chiropractic is a local Oswego health center is committed to wellness by practicing the hands-on techniques of chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, acupressure.   One of the testimonials on her web site enlightens us that  “I just wanted to thank you again for all of your kindness, patience, support, and gentle caring hands… Thank you, thank you, thank you! ~ Dr. Cathy D." [3] So, sometimes touch is about the wellness side with kindness and patience.  

Other times, a person's healing may have to do with a perceptive of calculative results such as this quote from one of my own latest Oswego patients in my own private bodywork practice:  " She is wise beyond her years, does lymphatic drain differ than others and it gets results."  Another patient, Andrea, mentions stress reduction through touch:  "The massage was pretty intense at some points but was well worth it in the end.  I could feel the stress being rubbed away."

 At  1144 Douglas Road, Oswego, on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday,  I offer a 30 min $69., 60 min $89., and 90 min $129.  Craniofascial release Massage & Bodywork treatment  that is designed to ground and center a person who is in physical pain and not focused mentally.  

This service is the perfect example of how licensed therapeutic touch can transcend the levels of comfort and healing by working with the whole person including emotional inside and physical outside.  It is amazing.  It begins with the forehead, then between the eyebrows, around the eyes, relaxing the jaw, draining the sinus, helping alleviating neck & shoulder pain.
