    Pierre C., Fresno, CA

    This place is the real deal. Its not a floo-floo spa with all the bells and whistles. They don’t sell a bunch of junk in the waiting area, and aren’t trying to up-sell you on lotions or cremes. They are there for one thing, and one thing only – a great massage!

    What a pregnancy massage really can do…

    June 5, 2014
    Pregnancy massage, more than just a time to relax. When you hear the word Pregnancy massage, what comes to mind? A spa, pretty candles, sweet smelling oils and relaxation? Well you wouldn’t be wrong, but what most people don’t understand is that in addition to the relaxation benefits of a massage there are huge therapeutic elements that most clients and therapists fail to realize. Pregnancy massage and Acupuncture can assist women through the entire pregnancy process: -Getting pregnant: Stimulating specific points throughout the body and breaking up adhesions that can impede the conception process can help increase the chances of getting pregnant. -Pregnancy: During pregnancy the body goes through hundreds of changes. Some can cause new aches and pains that your doctor has very few solutions for. This is where MetaTouch therapeutic treatments can help. Our treatments can help alleviate carpal tunnel symptoms, swollen feet, back and neck pain, morning sickness, sciatica headaches and much more with out any danger to the unborn baby. At our office, we also have a specialized table that you can lie face down all the way through your pregnancy. -Delivery: Most of us run our lives by the clock and calender. Unfortunately most babies have their own schedule that do not match with ours! By using specific points and techniques we can help move up the baby’s timetable and help induce labor when the due date has already passed. There are also techniques to safely help turn the baby in utero when they are sitting in the wrong position for delivery. -Post Delivery: Now your baby is here, your body has been through the ringer and sleep has become a luxury that you only can dream about. Again MetaTouch can help. During your pregnancy your body is flooded with a hormone called relaxin. This hormone helps prepare your body to stretch and grow to handle the baby coming. After the delivery for a short while, relaxin is still present in the body. This makes it easier for your therapist to re-align your body so that when it returns back to its normal state, everything is where its supposed to be. The other benefit of getting a massage after your baby comes, is to take a nap in peace! You worked hard now it’s time to reward yourself.

    5 Things to combat Workplace Stress

    January 29, 2014
    I think every generation looks back at the one in front of them and says,” They don’t work half as hard we did!” Well, I think regardless of what generation you come from; it’s hard to deny that todays work environment has hit a new high when it comes to stress. When 12-14 hour days are commonplace, most of which is spent sitting in front of a computer or at endless meetings. This can play havoc on the body. Add poor or no nutrition, limited exercise and you have a recipe for disaster. The human body was not built to sit in one place for long periods of time. We were hunters and gatherers who were supposed to be running through the fields. Now we are chained to a desk. So what do we do? I’m not suggesting you go off the grid and live on a commune picking nuts and berries, but here are a few things that can be done to make life a little easier and your work environment a healthier happier place. Too much of our day is scattered with things coming at us from every angle. List out 3-5 attainable goals that you can accomplish today. This will not only give you a positive boost because you accomplished a goal but will also help keep you on track and prevent the feeling of being overwhelmed. We tend to think of eating as something that is involuntary. Unfortunately this thought process gets most people into trouble. Two scenarios usually happen; 1st you are working long hours, don’t eat all day and then have one big meal at the end of the day. This scenario will end with you exhausted, foggy, more susceptible to getting sick and make you fat! When you don’t eat consistently your metabolism slows down to a crawl, causing everything you eat to turn into fat. Your body goes into storage mode because it never knows when you are going to feed it again. 2nd You are a grazer, munching on sweets and carbs all day then having 1- 2 giant meals. This scenario usually ends up with you taking in way more calories than you need. Because most of the food consists of sweets or carbs, the typical feeling will be a quick jolt of energy then a crash. Your meals will also be unhealthy along with portions that are far too large. Solution: Pick a day like Sunday and cook 3-4 meals that you like in quantity and then freeze them. Make sure each meal consists of a protein (chicken, steak, fish, tofu or beans) a complex carb (vegetables) and a straight carb (rice, quinoa) Make sure the first two ingredients are the majority and the straight carbs are the smallest portion. I recommend that when you think portion size, think, no more than your fist, this should be your reference for the quantity of each component. Now here is the hard part…I need you to eat 5 times a day!

    Why what we do at MetaTouch is so different…

    October 30, 2013
    If you haven’t noticed, in the past 10 years massage has gone from something that was only seen in spas and high end centers to a service you can find on almost any street corner. The trend has been to offer massage cheaper and in higher volume. I call them mills. The problem with this model is that any time you increase volume and decrease price; the quality of massage always suffers. At MetaTouch we’ve been taking care of your massage and wellness needs for almost 20 years. To compete with the market we keep our prices reasonable, $65 per hour, but one thing we will never skimp on is our quality. Our mission is to provide the best possible service to all our clients. All our therapists our specially trained in house but most have additional experience in other areas of healing. Some have been personal trainers, physical therapists or have been trained in specialized massage techniques. Check out some of the services we provide At MetaTouch you will never be a number. We encourage our therapists to build relationships with their clients to better address their individual needs. If you see the same therapist each time, they learn what works best for your body and will bring that knowledge to the table each and every time. We live off of referrals! How has MetaTouch survived almost 20 years? You! Your commitment, loyalty and eagerness to share your experience with others is the lifeblood of our company. Any chance you get please tell your friends and family about our services. Like us on facebook, write a nice review on Yelp, all these things will assist us in our ability to continue to provide the amazing service you expect from MetaTouch. Thank you, Holden Zalma, CEO MetaTouch Therapeutic Massage and Wellness Center

    Are we addicted to medication?

    October 2, 2013
    Lately I’ve noticed in LA, almost everyone is on some sort of medication. They take a pill because they’re sad another because they’re too happy another to stay focused and another to fall asleep. We’ve become a society of patches, if something’s wrong, take a pill and all will be fine…or will it? When did we stop dealing with our problems? If you’re sad why not figure out why you are sad, talk to someone, develop coping skills then you won’t be sad anymore. When we take a pill it’s almost like shoving our problems under a rug. We know they are still there, we see the lump in the rug, but keep on pretending it’s not there. 20-30 years ago 80% of the medication that is available today didn’t even exist. And guess what, people still got by, they went to work, interacted with their families and continued to function. If a problem arose, they had no choice but to deal with, and move on. I think this is one of the reasons I started MetaTouch in the first place, to deal with peoples problems head on and help them move toward a solution. It was never enough to put a Band-Aid on something or sweep it under the rug. I believe if you can find a healthy solution to a problem instead of hiding behind a pill, in the long run, you will be happier. This is my opinion and should be taken as that. There are many indications where medication is necessary and beneficial and in those situations I fully support their use. It is when they are used instead of dealing with an issue or the solution might be a bit of a challenge that I disagree with their abuse. One last example, I man in his 40’s severely overweight is told by his doctor to start blood pressure medicine, because his pressure is too high. This man had no congenital coronary problems. The reason for his high blood pressure is his lack of exercise and poor eating habits. This has caused him to gain weight and make his heart work that much harder. But now he has a pill that will allow him to continue along the same path with out taking any accountability for his own body or health. All I can wish is that one day we as a population will take accountability for our bodies and not rely on a pill to cover up what we choose not to see.

    Why didn’t my Doctor know that?

    April 29, 2013
    When I was growing up and we went to the family doctor he was just that our “Family Doctor.” Anything we needed we got from him, x-rays, meds, minor procedures, blood tests were all done in his office. There were no referrals to specialists, because he did it all. Now it’s an entirely different experience. With the invention of HMO’s and managed care, healthcare has become compartmentalized and myopic. Everyone is a “specialist” now. Your primary care physician has become more of a place of triage than one of overall care. Where once you had everything in one office now those services have been pushed out to multiple providers. Get you blood taken at lab A, x-rays are across town and the to review the results see doctor B over here. By the time you get the basics done, you’ve been all around town and seen 3-4 different providers, all of who don’t communicate with each other. Medicine has become so specialized with doctors only focusing on their one specialty, that a lot of the time the one who gets lost in the process is “you” the patient. The body is not a bunch of individual parts that work independent of each other, but instead a complex interconnected network that is constantly being affected by it’s other parts. This process has created a disconnect when it comes to treating patients as a people and not just a bunch of random parts. This is why so many people are looking toward alternative health care providers to meet their needs. The holistic providers have a tendency to take an inventory of the whole body, both mentally and physically to create a treatment plan that best works for the patient. By looking at the person as a whole they are able to quickly determine the true cause of your problem instead of chasing multiple symptoms. Now don’t get me wrong, western medicine is essential to our longevity and plays a necessary part in our overall health care. But I only wish there was better communication between the specialists to treat people as a whole. At MetaTouch we pride ourselves on looking at the person as a whole and doing the best we can to find the core issues, while giving our clients the tools to heal and prevent future problems. So what can you do as a patient in our current healthcare system? Be your own advocate. 9 out of 10 times we know our bodies and what is going on, more so than the 5-minute usual consult with our doctors. Communicate with your physician tell them what is going on, if you have to go to a specialist, make sure you communicate all the symptoms that are going on not just the ones that pertain to that specialist. That way they can have a better understanding of your condition as a whole.

    Why does it burn here and stab there? Where is my pain coming from?

    April 23, 2013
    Why does it burn here and stab there? Where is my pain coming from? Pain comes in many different forms but each type tells a different story. First let’s define pain; “Physical suffering or discomfort caused by illness or injury.” So the different types of pain you can feel can range from sharp, stabbing, dull, aching, local, or referred. Each one of these tells a different story. The simple rule of thumb is, the sharper the pain, the more local the cause. A good example of this is if you cut your finger, where you cut it, really hurts. This will account for the sharp or stabbing pain. When pain migrates or radiates the location can be less obvious. A dull ache or burning sensation means the pain is distal, or moving away from the origin. An example of this is sciatic pain. Sciatic pain can be felt in the butt, all the way down the leg and sometimes-even manifest in the foot or the big toe. Even though the pain is felt in the leg or foot, the cause is usually coming from the pelvis or lumbar spine. A disc being herniated or compressed will most of the time be the culprit. So the lesson here is even though it hurts in one spot it might be coming from somewhere else. When you see your massage therapist, chiropractor or doctor, make sure you describe the type of pain as well as where it starts and ends. This will all help your practitioner better address the route cause of your pain. At MetaTouch your therapist will ask these questions to make sure they treat the true cause of your pain and get you out of it as quickly as possible. www.metatouch.com
