MASSAGE THERAPY


Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension, which, experts believe, accounts for 80%-90% of disease. Massage has been proven beneficial in treating and aiding headaches, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, back pain, neck pain, immunity suppression, postoperative surgery, age-related disorders, depression, repetitive strain injuries and sports related injuries to name just a few.

Here's why:

Bodywork offers a drug-free, noninvasive approach based on the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Massage has many physiological effects, such as:

  1. Increasing circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.

  2. Stimulating the lymph system, the body's natural defense, against toxic invaders.

  3. Relaxing and softening injured and overused muscles.

  4. Reducing spasms and cramping.

  5. Increasing joint flexibility.

  6. Reducing recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminating subsequent pains for a athlete at any level.

  7. Releasing endorphins, the body's natural painkiller. For this reason, massage is being incorporated into treatment for chronic illness, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain.

  8. Reducing post-surgery adhesions and edema and reducing and realigning scar tissue after healing has occurred.

  9. Improving range of motion and decreasing discomfort for patients with low back pain.

  10. Relieving pain for migraine sufferers and decreasing the need for medication.

  11. Providing exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reducing shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion.

  12. Contributing to shorter labor and reduced tearing for expectant mothers, as well as lessening the need for medication, minimizing depression and anxiety, and shortening hospital stays.
