Massage therapy is more than relaxing me-time. Studies continue to prove the physical, and emotional benefits of even a single massage therapy session. As the number of proven health benefits grows, so do the number of people who turn to massage therapy for a more balanced lifestyle.
How Can Massage Therapy Be Medically Beneficial?
RELIEVES STRESS Stress relief is key to achieving a healthier lifestyle. Even a single massage session can significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels – all of which help reduce daily stress.
ENCOURAGES RELAXATION Relax. Reset. Repeat. Massage has been shown to help the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.
IMPROVES POSTURE Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can be relaxing to correct. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.
IMPROVES CIRCULATION The pressure created by massage therapy moves blood through congested areas. This causes new blood to flow in, resulting improved body function.
RELAXES MUSCLES Got neck, back or muscle pain? Odds are, sitting all day at the office is the culprit. Massage gets to the root of persistent pain by relaxing tense muscles.
IMPROVES FLEXIBILITY AND RANGE OF MOTION As we age, joints tend to tighten, making range of motion more restricted. Massage helps keep joints more fluid, making you more flexible and less prone to injury.
