Benefits of Therapeutic 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. Therapeutic Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:
◾Enhanced sleep quality.
Therapeutic 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.
