- 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.
