The Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension, which experts believe, accounts for 80-90% of disease.

Massage therapy has many physiological effects, including:

  • Increased circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs
  • Stimulation of the lymph system, helping the body to release stored toxins, acting as a natural defense
  • Relaxing and softening injured and overused muscles
  • Reduced spasms and cramping
  • Increased joint flexibility
  • The releasing of endorphins, the body's natural painkiller
  • Improvement of the appearance of cellulite
  • Reduction of post-surgery adhesions and edema and reduction and realignment of scar tissue after healing has occurred
  • Improved range of motion and decreased low back pain and discomfort
  • Relief of pain for arthritis, tendonitis, and migraine sufferers

How Often Should I Receive a Massage

Ideally once a month for personal well being would be best. For athletic and active individuals, more frequent visits are recommended. Injuries or problems areas should be addressed on an individual basis.
