Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage Therapy has many health benefits beyond simple relaxation. In an age of technical and, at times, impersonal medicine, massage offers a drug free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
A few benefits include...
-Increased circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.
-Stimulating the flow of lymph- the body’s natural defense system.
- Increases joint flexibility.
- Releases endorphins- the body’s natural painkiller
- Improves range of motion
- Reduces recovery time, helps prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pains of athletes at any level
- Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles
-Reduces spasms and cramping
