There’s no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic)
or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

 

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into:


• Decreased anxiety

• Enhanced sleep quality

• Greater energy

• Improved concentration

• Increased circulation

• Reduced fatigue

 

Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.

The important health benefits of massage are many:


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

• Improves blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells.

• Stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body’s waste products.

• Enhances immunity by stimulating lymph flow – the body’s natural defense system.

• Improves the condition of the body’s largest organ... the skin.

• Reduces spasms and cramping.

• Releases endorphins – amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.

• Calms the nervous system and promotes a sense of relaxation and well being.

• Reduces tension and anxiety.  

• Helps with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, and muscle spasms.

• Relieves tension-related headaches.  

• Increases self-esteem.
