The Benefits Of Massage

In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body, with profound effects.

Massage has a demonstrated ability to:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion
  • Ease medication dependence
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system
  • Stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin
  • Increase joint flexibility
  • Lessen depression and anxiety
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation
  • Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling
  • Reduce muscle spasms and cramping
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller
  • Relieve migraine pain

Stress Relief and Massage

Some experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. Eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world is idealistic. However massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.

This translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Greater energy
  • Improved concentration
  • Increased circulation
  • Reduced fatigue
