Massage Therapy Benefits
A Lifestyle of Wellness
When we say "massage is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle", we mean it! That's because massage therapy benefits nearly all of our bodily systems in different ways. And these benefits are cumulative - each session allows you to gain more and feel even better than before! So whether you're recovering from an injury, managing chronic pain or illness, training for a sport, or just looking to relax, massage therapy can help.
From arthritis to asthma, the benefits of massage are far-reaching. Although not a replacement for conventional medical care, massage can provide relief for many specific conditions and ultimately promotes an overall sense of well-being which greatly accelerates healing from both physical and psychological ailments. Studies have shown the positive effects of massage as a complementary therapy. When massage therapy was combined with conventional medical treatments, patients reported improved sleep. Numerous studies have shown massage therapy as an effective treatment for:
Anxiety & depression
Soft tissue strains or injuries
Myofascial pain syndrome
Massage therapy's effectiveness in treating these conditions is due to its various positive impacts on the different body systems.
Poor posture, often caused by muscular imbalances, improves with focused Massage Therapy & Stretch Therapy to bring the body back into balance.
Reduce Chronic Pain
With greater flexibility, a balanced musculoskeletal system, and reduced inflammation, massage therapy can make chronic aches and pains a thing of the past.
Massage Therapy activates the parasympathetic nervous system, putting the body into a recovery state. Reduced cortisol and increased serotonin & dopamine promote relaxation long after the session ends.
Proper delivery of oxygen & nutrients throughout the body increases energy, boosts immune function, reduces post-workout soreness, and more.
Through reduced anxiety, improved blood flow, and a healthier balance of hormones, massage therapy helps the brain function at its best.
Increase Range of Motion
Loosening tense & tight muscles allows the joints to move through their full range, reducing the risk of injury and helping you live pain-free.
Boost Immune Function
Massage Therapy increases the number of white blood cells, reduces stress hormones, and increases circulation which all help the immune system function at its best.
Improve Respiratory Function
Breathe easy. Massage Therapy loosens tight muscles restricting the respiratory path and aligns the torso to help the lungs and diaphragm function properly.
Massage Therapy reduces inflammation & muscle soreness, speeding up recovery times from workouts and injuries. Less pain, more gain.
Decrease Blood Pressure
A primary factor in cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure can be reduced with regular Massage Therapy.
Regular Massage Therapy reduces the frequency and severity of migraines and tension headaches. Massage can also acutely alleviate the pain & discomfort caused by pressure & tightness.
Improve Sleep Quality
Stress, hormone imbalances, electronics, & irregular schedules contribute to insomnia & poor sleep quality. Regular Massage Therapy significantly improves sleep quality & leads to a more regular sleep pattern.
