Benefits of Therapeutic Massage
There are a lot of pressures in today’s world, and 80% of all doctors visits are stress related. When you are stressed, stress hormones get released. These stress hormones can cause illness. Regular massage combats the effects of stress. This will help you stay healthy and to feel well balanced.
Imagine feeling calmer and more patient with your children, spouse and work. When people take care of themselves, they have more to give.
Massage helps with depression and anxiety. Massage causes feel good hormones to be released, which is why you feel so good after a massage. I would recommend regular massage if you are suffering from these conditions because massage will create an overall sense of well-being. You will feel more connected and whole.
Massage therapy uses the fingers, hands, forearms, and elbows to work on the body’s soft tissues: the skin, the muscles, and tendons. Massage help to alleviate pain and improve quality of life. I use specific techniques to focus on areas of tension where there are knots, which are adhesions in the muscle tissue that cause pain. By alleviating these areas of tension blood flow is improved to the area and pain is decreased. Receiving massage on a regular basis is important to maintain good results and keep you pain free. I have weekly, biweekly, and monthly clients and they maintain to good result by coming in for maintenance sessions.
