Therapeutic massage is a wonderful way to relax mentally, emotionally and physically, and it is also very healthy for the body.  Studies have shown that massage benefits the body in many ways:

  • Relieves stress
  • Improves well-being
  • Reduces or eliminates pain
  • Improves posture and circulation
  • Decreases depression and anxiety
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Encourages relaxation
  • Relieves headaches
  • Improves flexibility and range of motion
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Improves immunity
  • Reduce spasms and cramping
  • Releases endorphins (the body’s natural painkiller!)

Massage can be a wonderful treat or a regular part of helping you maintain your health.

Both the Mayo Clinic and the National Center for Integrative Health recognize the therapeutic benefits of massage.
