When a person feels good, relaxed and balanced, all aspects of life improves. At Belcara Health, we encourage our patients to take time for themselves and care for their bodies and minds. We strive to create transformational wellness experiences for our patients by providing exceptional services in a beautiful and comfortable environment with passionate, experienced and skilled specialists.
Massage therapy is a wonderful way to restore your body and mind by:
- Relieving stress and promoting relaxation
- Reducing pain and easing sore muscles
- Improving muscle recovery after overexertion
- Improving your overall mood, health and wellness
Regular massage therapy decreases cortisol, a primary stress hormone, and increases serotonin, which is a key factor in how your body regulates your mood, sleep, ability to learn and more. It also increases the release of dopamine which promotes natural good feelings.
Because your body and needs are continuously changing, we offer a variety of massage therapy treatments to meet you where you are in life, and take you where you want to go.
Our Massage Services are led by Colleen Renehan, a Certified Massage Therapist and Reiki Master, with extensive training and experience with a wide range of bodywork therapies. Before your first treatment, Colleen will review your medical history, concerns and objectives to determine which treatment plan for your wellness goals. Each service is offered in 30, 60 and 90 minute appointments, and Colleen is happy to develop a customized treatment plan to meet your needs.
