If you are looking for a drug-free, holistic, and humanistic approach to health care, massage therapy may be a good start.
Experts estimate that 80-90% of disease is stress related. Chronic stress translates into tight muscles and tissues that are not able to accept nutrients and oxygen being delivered by the circulatory system. After awhile, problems begin to develop. We “just wake up” with pain in our neck, or we bent over to pick up the dog bowl and threw out our back. These types of issues are not generally one-time incidents. They are often the result of cumulative stresses on the body and/or muscular imbalances that occur over time.
Regular masssage can help to lower your stress level and keep your body functioning at it’s optimal level. Some more specific benefits of massage include:
- Increased Joint Flexibility
- Increased Muscle Flexibility
- Fluid, Pain Free Movement
- Decreased Blood Pressure
- Increased Circulation
- Faster Recovery Time from Injury
- Enhanced Immunity
- Decreased Low Back Pain
- Decreased Sciatic Pain
- Reduced Spasms and Cramping
Benefits of massage and body work increase with regular visits. Our muscles and tissues have memory. By returning for regular body work, unproductive memory can be changed and new, healthier connections can be established. By taking part in regular body work, you are making an investment in your body. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan. I am happy to work with you to develop a plan that best fits your needs.
