From Our Website
Indigo offers individual bodywork sessions from alternative and traditional modalities to help you along your journey. Experience the healing of a Lomilomi Hawaiian Massage, Ayurvedic, Deep Tissue and Gentle Massage, Pre and Postnatal and Couples Massage, Acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy, and Reiki and Energy Balancing. Most of our individual sessions are offered in downtown Florence with free and easy parking. You may request our Northampton or Ashfield location as well as home visits. The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.
Indigo began more than 16 years ago with a passion to help people find health, balance and pain relief. We are looking to help facilitate people's healing process, whether it is through our bodywork, on going classes or just a statement that we may say in passing, something that makes you think. When we work we offer more than a massage. We offer a healing session. Our intention is to help you balance and find a space for yourself where you can reconnect and unwind. Our goal is to have you feel like the pieces have been put back together and you can go out and do what is called of you in these changing times.
The BioMat is special type of heating pad that helps you relax and come into health. It converts electricity into Far Infrared Rays (FIR), nature's invisible light. FIR was discovered by NASA to be the safest, most beneficial light wave. This reduces swelling, increases blood flow and has been shown to destroy cancer and viral cells without harming surrounding healthy cells. It penetrates 6-8 inches into the innermost recesses of the body, stimulating healing and regeneration of nerves and muscle tissue layers.
We started our bodywork clinic to make massage and wholistic care accessible to those whom otherwise could not afford it. In the past eleven years we've had the honor to support people with disabilities, people who have been in accidents that left them unable to work, and people experiencing emotional and spiritual challenges. Although we enjoy working with everyone who comes in to Indigo it is our wish to honor the purpose of the clinic. This time is set aside ONLY for those who cannot afford a regularly priced session.
There are so many wonderful resources to help us all along our healing path. We are beginning to put together a place for finding support at Indigo and in the local community. Please share your own ideas with us or give us a call to see how we may help you. We love to refer to local herbalists, healing practitioners, and businesses. We hope in the future that this page will offer a resource for you to come to for guidance. In the meantime look for us at Charity Indigo Ritscher or Indigo: Massage, Yoga & Community on facebook.
We are convienantely located at 45 Main Street, Studio B, in the center of Florence, just minutes from Northampton and Easthampton and a short drive from Springfield and the hilltowns. We are located just behind the Cumberland Farms with our own free parking lot. Look for the big Blue Sign that says YOGA! Joseph and Charity have separated our business so to find us come to the yoga studio, not to the old Indigo Massage sign.
Are you looking for more support or balance in your life? Help with transition? Or maybe just a headache? Energywork and Reiki are incredibly relaxing. You may find that you go to a very deep place, may see images or colors, or feel dreamy as we lay our hands on you or just above you to work with your 4 energy bodies (mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical) to support you in your own healing process. We believe that you do your own healing work, but that extra support may make your work much easier.
Craniosacral therapy is an integrated body therapy that facilitates the body's natural ability to self-repair and heal. Craniosacral massage is a very gentle, non-invasive technique that focuses on the craniosacral system of the body (the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord). By tuning into the subtle craniosacral rhythm in the client's body tissues and fluids, the therapist can help to resolve restrictions caused by trauma and stress, thus revitalizing and strengthening the body's intrinsic healing ability.
