THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE

Welcome to the many who are becoming aware of the wonderful benefits of massage! Do you know how you will be helping others? It is widely accepted that the following are a few of the numerous benefits of massage:

  • Relax tense, contracted muscles
  • Simulate healthy skin tone
  • Decrease pain and soreness
  • Break up cellulite
  • Prevent excessive stretch marks and scar tissue  
  • Give relief from edema, constipation and gas
  • Calm nerves
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Restore a sense of well-being and balanced flow of energy
  • Relieve minor tensions before they result in major stress accumulations
  • Increase joint range of motion
  • Accelerate the body's natural self-repair capacities
  • Tone organs
  • Increase the amount of white blood cells to fight infections
  • Stimulate muscles to counteract atrophy
  • Disperse accumulations of lactic acid and carbon dioxide

 

In addition to the physical benefits of massage, there are profound psychological benefits which often surprise people when they experience it for the first time. This benefit is a deep sense of well-being as tension melts away, protective walls come down, and true intimacy unfolds - a feeling of connectedness and harmony.

All this... and it feels great too! So let's get ready to start delivering these gifts to others.
