Holistic Massage School Explains the Benefits of Circulatory Massage

Circulatory Massage is an excellent integrative therapy that offers numerous health benefits”, said Harmony Curtiss, Director for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health, Laguna Hills (Healing Hands). “Massage Therapists can provide a very therapeutic and nurturing experience.  Circulatory Massage helps enhance circulation and the functioning of all Body Systems while reducing pain and discomfort”, she added. 

Harmony is a Certified Massage Therapist and Holistic Health Practitioner with years of experience as a multi-modality Massage Therapist and Staff Instructor.  She understands first-hand how therapeutic touch delivered with focused intention can provide substantial relief to patients of all ages including infants and the elderly.

In Circulatory Massage class, Healing Hands Instructors provide lecture, demonstration, and dozens of hours of hands-on practice.  In addition to learning about all the bones and muscles in the body, students learn to master body draping and a variety of massage strokes and techniques.  By the end of the course, students are empowered to deliver a full-body Circulatory Massage that addresses therapeutic concerns while promoting deep relaxation and well-being.

Circulatory Massage facilitates the release of neuro-chemicals that reduce stress and alleviate pain.  With regular Circulatory Massage, clients can enjoy a reduction in pain medications which often come with negative side-effects.  In addition to a long list of physical benefits, Circulatory Massage delivers many significant psycho-social benefits as well.  These may include but are not limited to, enhanced mood, an increase in energy and mental focus, balanced emotions and increased self-esteem.

Harmony shares the reality of this work with students, explaining how working with a variety of different clients can present challenges, but also offers many rewards. Although it requires a willingness to acknowledge and be sensitive to the emotional vulnerability of clients, it also can facilitate profound personal and professional growth for the Massage Therapist. 

Considered a trail-blazer for education in the Holistic Healing Arts, Healing Hands has prepared more than 7,000 students for successful careers and can do the same for you!

Holistic Massage School Offers Exceptional Course in Reflexology

“An effective holistic health practice that goes well with most massage modalities, Reflexology treatments are deeply relaxing and therapeutic”, said Harmony Curtiss, Director for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health, (Healing Hands).   “When integrated into each therapeutic massage session, Reflexology allows students to positively impact their clients’ endocrine, immune, circulatory, respiratory, and neuropeptide systems.  Our 30-hour course will be offered on Sundays starting May 27th, from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM, so mark your calendar!”,   she added.

Reflexology is a form of touch therapy that involves the Practitioner stimulating various pressure points on the feet and hands to promote health and healing.  The course is taught by Staff Instructor Denise Fultz, who combines lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice to familiarize students with reflex points and techniques for their manipulation.  Students learn which reflex points relate to specific organs, glands and other systems of the body, so they can customize client treatments.  The modality has been shown to improve a variety of common ailments including Plantar Fasciitis, Stress, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Anxiety and various digestive disorders. 

“Remembering the exact location of reflex points has always been the biggest challenge for Reflexology students”, said Denise.  Toward that end, co-faculty member Raina Colvin and I developed a Reflexology Chart for students to use as a quick-reference.  The unique, hand-painted chart includes a stand-up design, shows the underlay of bones in the foot, and displays the orientation of the feet and hands as they would appear during a treatment.Reflexology charts can be purchases at any Healing Hands Bookstore or online at Denise’s website: www.InnerWellness.org, To purchase multiple copies please email your request to:  denisehhp@cox.net or call her at 760-594-2473.

Denise Fultz is a Certified Massage Therapist, Holistic Health Practitioner, Public Speaker, and multi-subject Instructor for Healing Hands.  A gifted Practitioner and Instructor, Denise has been a valued member of the Faculty for over 20 years and currently teaches a total of seven classes. These include: Homeopathic First Aid, Anatomy for Bodyworkers, Geriatric Massage, Circulatory Massage, Tui Na, Manual Lymph Drainage, and of course, this 32-hour Reflexology course.

In addition to Denise’s many contributions at Healing Hands, Denise is an aspiring Author in the process of writing her first book.  The book,  “Compassionate Care” is designed as a ‘How to’ guide for families and caregivers of terminally ill patients.  The book will provide a wealth of information about natural therapies and holistic remedies to support and comfort individuals going through the dying process.
