The Benefits of Massage

Current research now validates what most clients already know about massage therapy: it can help ease or prevent many common ailments that are often treated with prescription drugs and/or hospitalization. Massage therapy is based on the ability of the body to naturally heal itself.

Massage has been shown to:

  • Decrease stress
  • Increase circulation
  • Release muscle tightness
  • Improve joint range of motion and flexibility
  • Release endorphins
  • Diminish aches and pains
  • reduce anxiety and depression associated with:
    • anorexia and bulemia
    • post traumatic stress disorder, and
    • chronic fatigue syndrome

 

Massage Types

Swedish Massage

The main purpose of swedish massage is to increase oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by increasing circulation without increasing heart load.

Deep Tissue

The same areas are covered as in a Swedish massage, but deeper pressure is applied to access the muscle lying below the superficial layers.

Hot Stone Massage

Heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on the body. The warmth of the hot stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system. Therapists place hot stones on points that are thought to be energy centers of the body to rebalance the body and mind.

Prenatal Massage

Massage designed for the women during pregnancy. Help relax away the natural tension that builds up during the many physical changes pregnancy brings to a woman’s body.
