What are the benefits of massage?

There are many benefits, all of which enhances one’s physical, mental, and emotional self.

  • Increases circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs
  • Stimulates the lymph system
  • Relaxes and softens injured or overused muscles
  • Reduces muscle spasms and cramping
  • Increases joint flexibility and range of motion
  • Reduces recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminating subsequent pains
  • Releases endorphins to control and relieve pain
  • Provides stretching and increasing muscle tone for atrophied muscles

Why ask about our body health at each massage session?

At the beginning of each massage session, we need to be aware of any changes with your body since your last massage, any major concerns regarding your body’s health, lifestyle changes, new injuries, or surgeries, and what areas you feel need more attention during your appointment.  Based on the information provided, a plan is formulated, and a customized massage is developed.
