Benefits Of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension, which, experts believe, accounts for 80%-90% of disease. Massage has been proven beneficial in treating cancer-related fatigue, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, low back pain, immunity suppression, spinal cord injury, autism, post-operative surgery, age-related disorders, infertility, eating disorders, smoking cessation, and depression, to name just a few. Massage has many physiological effects, such as:

  • Increased circulation to all areas of the body. This means that more oxygen goes to the tissues, enabling them to function more efficiently.
  • Removal of toxins and waste products that build up in the tissues.
  • Reduction in recovery time from certain injuries.
  • Softening of the connective tissue that permeates the body, resulting in more relaxed muscles and more efficient organ function.
  • Breaking of the pain-tension cycle, which helps prevent muscle strains and aches.
  • Increased flexibility and joint mobility.
  • Better muscular balance throughout the body, resulting in effective support for other healing modalities, such as chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation.
