Health Benefits of Massage

Health Benefits of Massage

Stress Reduction and Relaxation-

Massage helps the body to slow down and decreases levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

Muscle Loosening and Improved Flexibility-

Massage combs through muscle “knots” to relax the fibers and restore their full length. This in turn increases flexibility.

Pain Reduction-

Massage addresses the source of pain in muscle imbalances and sustained muscle contraction.  By addressing these issues much chronic pain is alleviated.

Injury Recovery and Rehabilitation-

Massage restores healthy blood flow to areas of diminished circulation thus allowing the body to heal.  Massage also helps reduce scar tissue and adhesive restrictions.

Increased Circulation-

Massage improves the body’s circulation allowing for reduction in swelling and inflammation as well as an improved feeling of well-being.
