What are the health benefits of massage?

Massage provides feedback about your body so you can make lifestyle adjustments. It also lets you take time for yourself. Clients often find that their muscles were tighter and more tender than they realized. We can help you learn how to listen to your body and determine which areas need work. There are many benefits to massage, both physical and emotional.

Massage therapy is beneficial for many health conditions, including:

• Low back pain
• Chronic sports injuries
• Arthritis
• Fatigue
• High blood pressure
• Diabetes
• Osteoarthritis
• Fibromyalgia
• Pain or tingling in arms or legs
• Headaches
• Insomnia
• Edema

Regular massage can help boost immunity, improve sleep, assist injury rehabilitation, increase mobility, and ease the side effects of cancer treatment. Massage can also help manage depression, as well as relieve symptoms of conditions that are aggravated by anxiety, such as asthma or insomnia.

Perhaps just as important, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension caused by our busy lives that can lead to disease and illness. Reducing stress gives you more energy, improves your outlook on life, and in the process reduces your likelihood of injury and illness.
