Soothe Your Tired and Aching Body Through Massage Therapy

Benefits of Massage

The body was already designed by our creator to naturally heal itself. However, massage therapy helps to facilitate this process during periods of stress in the body.

Research provides us with the following facts on the benefits of massage:

  • People who receive massages are healthier than people who do not receive them at all.
  • Massage relieves stress, anxiety and increases relaxation.
  • Massage increases circulation. This allows the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.
  • Massage stimulates the flow of lymph which acts against toxic invaders. Example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight against cancer.
  • Massage fosters deeper and easier breathing.
  • Massage relaxes tight, sore, injured and overused muscles.
  • Massage decreases muscle spasms and cramping in the extremities.
  • Massage helps to stretch shortened muscles, thereby increasing joint flexibility.
  • Massage improves range-of-motion and decreases discomfort for patients with low-back pain.
  • Massage reduces sports-related injury recovery time. In addition, it helps prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pains of the athlete.
  • Massage releases endorphins (produced by the nervous system) which provide the body with natural pain relief.
