The benefits of massage
Massage can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labour for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Enhance the immune system by stimulating the flow of lymph — the body’s natural defence system.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Reduce depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Improve oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce post surgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.
  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.

Many clients talk of a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance of massage can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
