0 Melissa has rejoined Basic Kneads!  If you haven’t met Melissa, or have forgotten who she is….Mel was our receptionist at our old location, and for a while where we are now.  Currently she is working remotely printing our receipts, answering calls, booking appointments and reminding you of your appointments.  Instantly you will note how incredibly pleasant, helpful and professional she is!!  We have also implemented a new virtual reception phone system that sounds much different than what we had, but helps callers by offering more information about the clinic if they are looking for service rates or directions.

0 Leanne Adam graduated Kikkawa College in Toronto in 1993. From the moment she entered the classroom she knew she had made one of the best career decisions she would ever make. A decision that would not only be an endless source of personal gratification, but more importantly, a decision that would give her the opportunity to use her hands to make a difference. “Touch is incredibly healing, a wonderfully natural way to fight pain, stress, illness and disease.” Working primarily with other health professionals for the first 5 years of her career, Leanne marveled at the body’s incredible ability to recover from stress and injury without the use of drugs or surgery. As with any profession, experience leads to an accumulation of...

Posted by: LMacRae  Posted date: July 07, 2011 in Blog
0 There are many types of anxiety disorders, including (but not limited to): Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and phobias. When you experience anxiety, your body produces a lot of the stress hormone “cortisol“. Science has proven Massage LOWERS cortisol levels!. It also gets rid of the muscle tension caused by anxiety disorders. In 1996 the Touch Research Institute did a study with 26 adults. For the study half the adults were given chair massages 2 x week for 15 minutes and the control group sat in a massage chair but didn’t receive a massage 2 x week for 15 minutes. (You have to feel sorry for the poor control group!) Before and...

A Session of Massage Keeps the Doctor Away!

Posted by: LMacRae  Posted date: April 20, 2011 in Blog
0 A recent study, reported on in the New York Times, determined that a single session of Swedish massage produces beneficial biologic effects on neuroendocrine and immune function in healthy adults. The study, published in the September 2010 issue of theJournal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, evaluated 53 medically and psychiatrically healthy adults, aged 18-45 years old. These participants were given 45 minutes of Swedish massage therapy versus a light touch control treatment. After just one session of Swedish massage therapy, adults experienced an increase in circulation of lymphocytes (improving the immune system) and a decrease in cortisol (aka the stress hormone), arginine-vasopressin (a hormone stimulating cortisol levels),...
