The body has an inherent ability to move towards wellness and massage is a drug-free, non-toxic way to facilitate that healing. One of the main benefits of massage is the increase in circulation and lymph flow. This brings fresh blood and oxygen to the tissues and assists in the elimination of waste products. Essentially, you are helping the body to heal itself. Massage is a wonderful way to shorten recovery time from an illness, injury, or operation.
Massage Therapy reduces adhesions and improves range of motion in the joint capsule. It allows your muscles and connective tissue to soften and so encourages proper postural position of the body. Massage can reduce pain and swelling as well as decrease the formation of scar tissue. The heart rate is reduced thereby lowering blood pressure and relieving hypertension. Massage Therapy is beneficial in releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, and alleviating the pain of headaches or migraines.
Experts believe that stress and anxiety are related to 80-90% of disease and massage significantly lowers stress, anxiety, and tension.
