The Benefits of Massage

Massage can play a significant role in keeping you on pace with wellness. There are so many benefits of massage that have been documented in research studies. Some form of touch therapy or bodywork can be beneficial to everybody and can help nurture both the body and the soul. Here are just a few examples.

Massage can help the body by...

  • Increasing circulation and dilation of blood vessels to bring more oxygen and nutrients to parts of the body that need it
  • Improving circulation of lymph, which boosts immune function and the body's natural defense system
  • Aiding repair of damaged tissue and promoting healing
  • Hastening recovery time and decreasing DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) after a strenuous workout
  • Relaxing muscle spasms and relieving cramping
  • Improving flexibility along with range of motion and function of joints
  • Relieving pain of tight, overused or injured muscles
  • Releasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller
  • Warming and loosening tight muscles
  • Reducing risk of injury
  • Promoting restful sleep

  • Relaxing the mind, reducing stress and anxiety
  • Providing a feeling of renewal or rejuvenation
  • Enhancing energy levels and increasing mental alertness
  • Encouraging a time of peace and tranquility in a hectic world
