Benefits of Massage

 

Experts estimate that upwards of 90% of disease is stress related. 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.

• Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.

• 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 post surgery adhesions and swelling.

• Reduce spasms and cramping.

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

• Release endorphins, which are amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.

• Relieve migraine pain.
