Medically Beneficial To:
- Relieves Stress
- Stress relief is key to achieving a healthier lifestyle. Even a single massage session can significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels–all of which help reduce daily stress
- Encourages Relaxation
- Relax. Reset. Repeat. Massage has been shown to help the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode¬: an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.
- Improves Posture
- Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can be relaxing to correct. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.
- Improves Circulation
- The pressure created by massage therapy moves blood through congested areas. This causes new blood to flow in, resulting improved body function.
- Lower Blood Pressure
- High blood pressure has more misconceptions than nearly any other medical condition. But one effective way to stave off high blood pressure naturally is massage therapy.
- Relaxes Muscles
- Got neck, back or muscle pain? Odds are, sitting all day at the office is the culprit. Massage gets to the root of persistent pain by relaxing tense muscles.
- Improves Flexibility and Range of Motion
- As we age, joints tend to tighten, making range of motion more restricted. Massage helps keep joints more fluid, making you more flexible and less prone to injury.
- Promotes Deeper and Easier Breathing
- One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in reliving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.
- Relieves Headaches
- 45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches and migraines. Massage helps ease the pressure and pain, which can also reduce the chance and frequency of headaches.
- Strengthens the Immune System
- Studies indicate that regular massage can naturally increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity–the activity level of the body’s natural “killer cells”.
- Enhances Post-Operative Rehabilitation
- Massage helps the body pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs. This makes massage therapy a great supplement to post-operative rehabilitation.
- Improves Rehabilitation After Injury
- Rehabilitation can be frustrating. A continual massage program can accelerate the recovery process, as well as help you relax and stay motivated.
