THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
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.

  •     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—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.

  •     Relieve migraine pain.
