Health Benefits of Massage – More than a Luxury…

Massage is a MUST!It’s common to think of massage as a luxury,  reserved for those who have excess money at their disposal.  Massage is much more a necessity for those of us who believe in maintenance health care, and as insurance against much more expensive care in the long run.  While it is indeed a “feel-good” kind of experience, in truth, it can make you feel better and better as your body is given the ongoing care and attention that a trained massage therapist can provide.

Benefits of massage are many, but here are a few. Massage can:

  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow — the body’s natural defense system
  • Alleviate low back pain and improve range of motion
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for and recover from strenuous workouts
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ — the skin
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks
  • exercise and stretch weak, tight or atrophied muscles
  • Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles
  • Release endorphins — amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller
  • Increase joint flexibility
  • Ease medication dependence
  • Reduce spasms and cramping
  • Lessen depression and anxiety
  • Relieve migraine pain

These are only a few of the many benefits of massage.  Take time to give your body the care it deserves, and it will reward you with more strength, flexibility, comfort and longevity.
