Massage Benefits

Massage can specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:

  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymphatic flow—the body's natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Reduce post-surgical adhesions and swelling.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and facilitating healing.
  • Bring oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Reduce tension or muscle related migraine pain.
  • Alleviate low-back, shoulder, hip, or knee pain and improve range of motion.
  • Ease medication dependence.
