Benefits of Massage

Regular monthly massage provides relief to people of all ages and all walks of life, from the competitive athlete to the home gardener or the over-stressed business person.

Massage has proven to be beneficial for the following conditions:

  • Sleep Disorders

  • High Blood Pressure

  • Diabetes

  • Depression

  • Lower Back Pain

  • Immunity Suppression

  • Spinal Cord Injury

  • Autism

  • Cancer-Related Fatigue

  • Post-Operative Care

  • Age-Related Disorders

  • Infertility

  • Eating Disorders

  • Smoking Cessation

Here's why: Massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach

to well-being based on the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Massage therapy provides many benefits, such as:

  • Increases circulation, which allows the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs

  • Stimulates the lymph system, the body's natural defense, against toxic invaders. For example in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.

  • Releases endorphins, the body's natural painkiller. For this reason, massage is incorporated in treatment for chronic illnesses, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain.

  • Improves range of motion and decreases discomfort associated with lower back pain.

  • Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles.

  • Reduces muscle spasms and cramping.

  • Increases joint flexibility.

  • Reduces recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent risk of muscle strain.

  • Relieves pain for migraine sufferers and may decrease the need for medication.

  • Reduces post-operative adhesions and edema, as well as reduces and realigns scar tissue after healing has occurred.

  • Contributes to shorter labor, reduces the need for medication and aides in quicker recovery in pregnant women
