How Can Massage Therapy Be Medically Beneficial?

  • Relieves Stress -Even a single massage session can significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels¬–all of which help reduce daily stress.

  • Encourages Relaxation- 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 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 and may be evaluated at your visit.

  • Relaxes Muscles- Massage gets to the root of persistent pain by relaxing tense muscles.

  • Improves Flexibility and Range of Motion- Massage helps keep joints more fluid, making you more flexible and less prone to injury.

  • Promotes Deeper and Easier Breathing- Massage can play an important role in reliving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.

  • Relieves Headaches- 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.

  • Improves Rehabilitation After Injury- A continual massage program can accelerate the recovery process, as well as help you relax and stay motivated.
