Benefits of Massage Therapy

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related.

And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress.

Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety.

  • Enhanced sleep quality.

  • Greater energy.

  • Improved concentration.

  • Increased circulation.

  • Reduced fatigue.

Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.

  • Ease medication dependence.

  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.

  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.

  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.

  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.

  • Increase joint flexibility.

  • Lessen depression and anxiety.

  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.

  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.

  • Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.

  • Reduce spasms and cramping.

  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.

  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.

  • Relieve migraine pain.

Common ailments that respond well to therapeutic massage:

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Headaches & Migraines

  • Chronic neck pain

  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

  • Plantar Fasciitis

  • 'Tennis' or 'Golfers elbow'

  • Stress & Anxiety

  • Insomnia
