Welcome to Body Life Massage, located at Sweers Family Chiropractic in Clive.
Body Life Massage is locally owned and operated by Julie Counsell, providing individualized massage programs to address athletic fatigue, injury, stress and more. Every person is different and I work with clients to understand specific areas of concern to develop an individualized therapy plan.
Common practice areas include:
Training for an upcoming event or undertaking a regular exercise routine? Focused treatment will reduce recovery time, soreness, help with injury prevention, and provide welcome muscle relaxation to reward and motivate continued training. My clients in marathon training experience increased pace and substantially reduced recovery times between long and short runs.
For people recovering from long or short term injuries, whether acute or chronic, I focus on muscles around affected areas. This treatment releases the “guarded” muscles to significantly reduce day-to-day pain and muscle fatigue. Treatment plans vary based on type of injury. Most clients experience immediate relief, with further or ongoing treatments developed specifically for each person.
The impact of chronic stress on our bodies is well documented and the chemical causes continue to be studied. Symptoms of chronic stress include anxiety, depression, headaches, insomnia, and resulting behavioral changes that affect your health and family relationships. These symptoms may not be consistent nor easily recognizable. I provide therapies shown to positively manage cortisol and other hormonal responses, with long-lasting results. I design individualized treatment plans for people experiencing chronic stress.
