Benefits of Massage

Experts estimate that close to ninety percent of diseases are affected by stress. Massage therapy is an effective tool for managing 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:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relieve migraine pain.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Improve quality of life.
