Massage therapy provides relief to a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension. Massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive approach based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The therapeutic effects of massage are cumulative, therefore the more often you receive a massage, the better you will feel and the more quickly your body responds.
Research shows that massage therapy is effective in managing chronic and acute pain as well as providing relief from muscle spasms and general stress. Stressed muscles block oxygen and nutrients, causing toxins to build up in the muscle tissue. Massage helps loosen muscle tissue, which releases toxins allowing blood and oxygen to circulate properly. For years, doctors have recommended regular exercise and proper diet for optimum health. Now, many doctors recommend that massage therapy be part of your injury recovery, prevention and overall medical care program. A few of the many benefits of massage are: Increases circulation, releases endorphins-the body’s natural pain killer, relieves headache pain, strengthens the immune system, relieves mental and physical stress, and reduces muscular tension. Massage is therapy.
Receiving regular massage can help you deal with the stresses of daily life and improve overall wellness and health. Once you have experienced a quality massage you will know how beneficial it is to your health.
