Benefits of Massage

Therapeutic massage is an age-old remedy and health practice. The healing systems of many cultures, including our own, use hands-on-therapy to soothe aches and pains and facilitate the body’s own healing powers. Many people are taking back the responsibility for their health and well-being. As a result, massage is becoming even more popular as a way of maintaining one’s health.

When the body is stressed., blood is routed to the arms and legs preparing the body to flee and protect itself. When blood is directed away from vital organs there is a restriction of oxygen, nutrients and waste removal in these areas.

Massage has the ability to affect every system of your body- general muscular tension and aches; tension headaches; muscular back pain; poor circulation; stress and anxiety are just a few.

Therapeutic massage can also negate the aging noticed in the middle to late years of life by enhancing tissue elasticity and joint flexibility; improving blood and lymph circulation; promoting healthy vibrant skin; improving immune system functioning and relieving muscle aches and stiffness.

Therapeutic massage can also help balance the effects of stress in our lives by triggering the “relaxation response”, relaxing tense muscles, reducing anxiety levels; normalizing blocked energy flow; improving immune system functioning and restoring a calm mind and feeling of well being.
