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 these benefits:

  • 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 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
