Benefits of Massage

Experts estimate more than 90 percent of disease is stress-related. 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.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight or atrophied muscles.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • 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.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.
  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow-the body's natural defense system.
