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