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:
- 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
Massage Therapy is now successfully being used in
the effective treatment of a variety of conditions
and illnesses including but not limited to:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: relieves the intensity of symptoms
Insomnia: produces more restful sleep
Asthma: deepens and slows breathing
Arthritis: reduces pain and swelling
Auto-Immune Diseases: boosts the immune system.
Alzheimer's Disease: reduces agitation
Premature Infants: massaged infants gain weight faster, are more alert, active and responsive.
Fibromyalgia: reduces inflammation thereby relieving chronic pain.
TMJ Disorder: releases tension stored in the muscles in and around the jaw joint.
