Benefits of Massage

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.
  • Aid in the recovery of injuries due to car accidents, repetitive stress, and sports.
  • Reduce muscle spasms and cramping.
  • Provide relief of carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, and fibromyalgia.
  • Treat injuries and disorders such as whiplash, frozen shoulder,strains, sprains, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, and plantar fasciitis.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase and maintain joint and muscle flexibility, and range of motion.
  • 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.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Relieve headaches and migraines.
