benefits of massage

Massage therapy provides various forms of relief to people of all ages and from all walks of life. One need only experience a good massage to know it is beneficial to both body and soul. Although a single therapeutic massage can be enjoyable, the effects of massage therapy are cumulative. Receiving massage treatments on a regular basis will bring about long term benefits.

Therapeutic massage has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions. These include relief from low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, and fatigue, along with helping to control high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, and depression.

Massage therapy specifically addresses and relieves stress-related tension and experts believe stress-related tension accounts for 80% - 90% of disease. Bodywork offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Therapeutic Massage gives one a feeling of comfort and relaxation. It's like taking a mini-vacation from the pressures of life. Studies have shown that massage therapy increases mental alertness and accuracy and reduces stress hormones such as coritsol and noradrenaline. These effects last longer as the cumulative benefits of regular therapeutic massage sessions are experienced. Weekly therapeutic massage sessions will help you look and feel years younger. At it's best, regular massage therapy sessions have the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally, and spiritually.
