Holistic Massage

Massage has been shown to help with a myriad of physical issues, but that is just the beginning. Massage at Oakheart has a holistic focus, helping to connect the mind and body in a way that supports healing and relaxation. Massage can create a greater awareness within the body, supporting the body’s ability to heal itself. The nervous system is the communication system of the body and when pain occurs, that is the body’s attempt to bring attention to a certain area or issue. Massage nurtures that communication and gives the body space to heal. It creates a greater sense of trust in the body and allows a deeper connection in mind, body, and spirit. To help facilitate healing, warm stones, essential oils, and a nurturing touch are used in a way that respects your body’s inner wisdom.

At Oakheart, Annick uses draping protocols in alignment with Louisiana state laws so that you can feel a sense of comfort and respect while you relax.
