Massage Therapy is one of the oldest and most beneficial healing arts today. The benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. Massage therapy has shown to improve many chronic conditions, including low back and neck pain, headaches/migraines, shoulder injuries, hip and knee injuries and much, much more. Certain massage techniques help prevent adhesions from forming, therefore reducing injury recovery time. Additionally it has been known to help decrease Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI). By applying therapeutic massage to problem areas in conjunction with stretching, it can help alleviate the pain associated with RSI.
Massage Therapy also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness. Touch helps our body and mind to relax. The many different strokes used release tight muscles and natural endorphins. This results in decreased pain, decreased heart rate, and a sense of calm. Massage improves mental response and alertness by relieving muscle tension and enabling blood to flow freely and supply the body with necessary nutrients and oxygen. It also assists the immune system by improving the circulation of lymph fluid throughout the body.
Regular massage is one of the best things you can do for yourself or for someone you care about.
