Your body will tell you regardless of how you describe it (therapy, papering, relaxing) or why you love it (a luxury or relief from pain and stress) massage is good for you.
So many diseases are stress related and nothing ages the body faster than stress. You can’t always avoid the things in your life that cause that stress, but you can reduce your stress with regular massage.
In addition, many people report a feeling of deeper perspective and mental clarity after a massage. The intangible benefits of a massage can be just as important as the physical benefits.
What is a Therapeutic Massage?
Therapeutic massage is the manipulation or the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm and stress. Massage promotes health and wellness. It improves functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems and improves the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness. Massage can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and partially compensate for the lack of exercise and inactivity resulting from illness and injury.
Spa therapy is not a luxury, but a necessity for today’s lifestyle. Treatments can strengthen the immune system. To learn more, feel free to call.
Massage therapy is a combination of science and art. Specific techniques and experienced sense of touch determine the right amount of pressure to apply to each person.
Massage is a preventative for “stress related illness”. Benefits include:

A massage is the most “Hands On” therapy you will receive in today’s medical community. Hands on healing facilitates your body’s own healing system to heal your pain in a natural way.
Develop a lifestyle that includes and prioritizes taking care of yourself. No one can do it for you. Receiving a regular massage will benefit every area of your life. A balanced lifestyle is rewarded with good physical, mental and emotional health.
