Massage therapy has been so misunderstood within the Western mindset. Many people, including those in the health or medical fields, think its just for relaxation and have visions of pricy resort “massage” for pampering and indulgence. Massage therapy can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being. It is rapidly becoming an integral part of complementary and alternative medicine.
Studies on the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension.
It has been found to be helpful in treating:
Soft Tissue sprains and strains
Insomnia related to stress
Increases circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid
Stimulates the nervous system which can benefit internal organs
Stimulates the skin and shallow sensory nerves. The skin is the largest organ on the body!
Releases chronic and acute muscle tension and spasms
Releases endorphins giving a feeling of well-being and connectedness
