• (stimulating) depending on the kind of massage
• Balances the autonomic nervous system
• Supports proper communication between the nervous system and the organs of the body
Digestive and Excretory System
• Stimulates peristalsis and can reduce cramping and spasm in the digestive tract
• Can stimulate elimination
• Assists in excretory problems relating to stress
Skin
• Increases circulation to the skin
• Reduces tension between the skin and the muscles
• Moisturizes and softens dry skin
• Supports eliminative properties of the skin
Respiratory System
• Normalizes and deepens respiration by releasing tension around breathing structures

As a whole body system, massage:

• Enhances immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
• Reduces spasms and cramping.
• Relaxes and softens injured, tired, and overused muscles.
• Releases endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
• Relieves migraine pain.
• Increases joint flexibility.

Rachel Pennington, LMP
MA00020295
My goal is to help people live healthier lives through massage.  I have found that people can live healthier lives when they take the time to focus on their bodies and the time it needs for relaxation and treatment.
It is found that most maladies have a stress related component.  If our stress is dealt with then the result is a happier body.  My areas of practice include:  Deep tissue massage, treatment/clinical massage ( which is necessary in any injury), trigger point therapy, Swedish, hot stone massage, pregnancy massage and postpartum.   I seem to have the unique ability to place my hands where your body needs it.  Come and experience how massage can change your life.  I have been practicing since 2004 in the Langley area.  I can be reached at 360-221- HEAL (4325) or email massagebyrachel.pennington@gmail.com  . Fax number is 360-313-6970  My location is at 772 Camano Ave, Ste #201B-A in the Camano Center in Langley (across from the South Whidbey School District Office).  I am available most week days and have late afternoon to evening appointments available for those who have to commute or who just need later appointments.  I accept most major insurances, PIP and Labor & Industries.  I also except most Debit and Credit cards.
