BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
 
The stressors of life, if not monitored and combated, could have serious effects on one's wellness - even life threatening consequences.   
 
Stress, when not relieved, can result in high blood pressure, breathing difficulties, compromised immune systems and chronic ailments.
 
Massage directly relieves stress by facilitating the body's natural "relaxation response" function of the nervous system.   
 
 

Specifically, the benefits of massage include:
 
Increased Circulation
  - reduces swelling and impedes fluid retention
  - increases oxygen to the brain allowing for 
    temporary mental clarity
  - hastens healing from surgery and injury
 
Calming of the Nervous System
  - deepens and slows breathing
  - improves appetite and digestion
  - assists in relief of constipation and chronic pain
 
Release of Muscle Tension
  - deepens sleep
  - reduces muscle spasm
  - facilitates ease of movement
  - improves balance and coordination
