Wellness Spotlight Series: Haley Games, LMT of Innate Energy Massage
We are so excited to start a brand new blog series, which puts a spotlight on companies and individuals that we work with. The Healing Rose has the honor to work with an array of talented professionals that are dynamic in their services and offerings, one including Haley Games LMT and Reiki Practitioner based out of Newburyport, MA. For over two years The Healing Rose and Haley have worked together at popular events like Boston’s Freedom Rally, New England Cannabis Convention, SoWa Open Market, and others throughout Massachusetts. Haley is famous for offering CBD infused massages with us at events, where both her healing hands and warm personality are able to shine.
We enjoy making meaningful partnerships with other like minded businesses and we are shining a light on those connections we have created along our journey. Our Spotlight Series will be in a Q&A format, so you get to know these individuals, their story, and for Haley, how CBD has changed her massage practice.
I have been a Massage Therapist for 5+ years, graduating from SpaTech Institute in Ipswich, MA. Working under previous establishments, to going back to school earning my Reiki I & II and then starting my own practice in 2016 Innate Energy Massage. I wanted to create a space where there’s no rush, where you can get the work and focus needed to let go, relax and keep on being you. I want you to get the most out of your experience to enhance your knowledge of your own innate self healing process. Whether you’re looking to increase circulation, ease mental stress, decrease inflammation or those just looking to relax; massage is preventative care. My journey with Massage has led to incorporating CBD topicals into my sessions ever since I tried the Lemon Ginger Massage Oil on my hands from The Healing Rose Co. Being a part of a community is important, The Healing Rose Company have been like family to me and their products speak for themselves.
Q: What were your first impressions of using CBD during your massage sessions?
Being a Bodyworker my hands are in constant work mode. After one use my hands felt lighter, like the time was turned back on my hands and I felt my blood and energy flow with ease. I have found great relief from my personal use and wanted to bring that to my clients.
Q: How has using CBD topicals benefited your practice? What type of feedback have you received from clients?
I have found that adding CBD topicals into a client’s session, to help me as a Massage Therapist work more effectively. It helps client’s reach that state of relaxation. While using smooth and connecting massage techniques, working into the deeper layers of muscle, combined helping to restore blood–flow easing tension. All my clients have been curious about adding CBD into their sessions, and the most common feedback I hear is that they felt an enhanced benefit to their session.
Q: How important is it that clients stretch before and after their session? What benefit does it provide?
Stretching before and after a session can make a difference in how you’ll feel overtime, improving your body mechanics or maybe you just want to meditate. Whether it’s sitting with yourself in a quiet space, riding your bike or reading your favorite book can do wonders for your mind and body.
Q: Could you explain a self-massaging technique that you enjoy using THR topicals with?
Often I get the question how to properly apply a CBD topical to get the best out of the product and experience. Everyone can benefit learning Self Massage techniques to better serve yourself. Using a quarter sized amount of the Massage Oil into your palm and adding light friction moisturizing both into the hands; no pressure needed, this should be slow smooth connected movements called an Effleurage, used in Swedish Massage. This is a simple technique used to generate heat increasing circulation.
Q: What does self-care mean to you? And what are 3 self-care habits you can’t live without?
My focus is to help educate my clients about the importance of their Self Care Routine. How you take care of yourself can impact your quality of life. I myself follow my own simple routine I can’t live without. Making sure I stay hydrated, stay committed to my yoga practice and meditate often. If I stray away from my practice I know my body will ache if I don’t meet myself on my yoga mat or get a massage, my mind will overthink making me anxious if I can’t find a way to sit a be with it when I feel overwhelmed. This is what self care is all about, staying committed to your routine so you can keep on. It’s an important aspect of my life because this ensures that I’m able to continue to do what I do.
Q: What is one quote or mantra that has stayed with you that you’d like to share?
Our bodies go through so much mentally, physically, lacking healing touch and so to remind myself of the process I recite the quote:
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them-that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
Q: If others would like to connect with you, where can they find you?
