The nonprofit organization, Community Healing Massage, started out as one person who wanted to use her skills to reach out to people on a grander scale. Founder, Rebekah Kujawsky, had a vision of offering therapeutic work to the many groups of people who have little to no access to such powerful and soothing ways of healing. As the value and benefits of massage therapy become more universally known, it is a perfect time to create a program that makes those benefits more available, especially in the areas that really need it. With your support and patronage, we are able to make a real difference in a peoples lives. This organization was created for everyone who wanted to, to become part of the system of giving back. Community Healing Massage truly beats with the heart of your community, working with and for it.
From workplace massage to geriatric hospices and everything in between, massage helps with the physical, psychological, and emotional trials of life. Weekly massages have been shown to have immediate and long term health benefits. In many cases, it has been shown that a regular massage decreases pain.
For a person who’s been injured, sits long hours at a computer, or simply has poor posture, massage is a wonderful way to aid the healing process. The beautiful thing about massage is that it does just as much good for people who are suffering from other kinds of non-physical ailments, like depression, anxiety, stress, or even loneliness.
Today, many people suffer from both physical and non-physical stressors. Massage therapy is an ideal way to enhance their quality of life, as well as make them more efficient in their daily activities.
