Benefits of Massage

Wondering what Massage can do for you?

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 & depression
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Greater energy & less fatigue
  • Improved concentration & focus
  • Increased local circulation
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Greater productivity at work or school

Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain & shoulder and neck 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
  • Increase stamina
  • 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
  • Reduce spasms and cramping
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles and connective tissue
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller
  • Relieve migraine & other headache pain
  • Create feelings of overall well-being
