What are the Benefits of Massage?

A therapeutic massage session gives your mind and body a break from the stresses of everyday life. In our daily lives we deal with an amazing amount of stress, which can affect our bodies in many ways such as :

  • muscle tension & pain
  • headaches
  • decreased energy
  • inability to sleep

Massage therapy creates a "relaxation response" , which is a natural function of the nervous system in which the body reverses the effects of excess stress. 

After your massage session, you will experience the following benefits of massage: 

  • Increased energy
  • Heightened ability to focus
  • Greater productivity
  • Release from chronic muscular tension & pain
  • Improved circulation
  • Increased Joint flexibility
  • Reduced mental and physical fatigue
  • You will sleep better
  • You will experience an overall sense of well-being

Regular massage works directly on the nervous system to quiet the mind and decrease stress.

This effect helps to improve your overall health and well-being.




How Does This Work?

To put it simply, massage therapy :

  1.  Promotes the flow of blood and lymph
  2.  Stimulates nerves
  3.  Stretches and loosens muscles and connective tissue

The extent you experience these benefits is strictly personal. Generally the more regular your sessions, the faster these benefits are realized. Frequency of massage sessions can range from once or twice a week, to a few time a year, depending on your stress level, or physical needs.



Why You Should Consider Having A Massage

  1. Do you end your day at the office with a sore neck?
  2. Aching back? Tight shoulders?
  3. Is your life riddled with anxiety and stress?
  4. Are you feeling physically fatigued?
  5. Having difficulty sleeping?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, a massage therapy session may help. If you are unsure about massage, we always suggest you start slow, with a half hour session, in which we work on the muscles of your neck, shoulders, and back. Even a short session of 30 minutes can provide relaxation that will ease your stress and anxiety, and help you sleep better.
