Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:
Enhanced sleep quality.
Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues:
Alleviate back pain and improve range of motion.
Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten hospital stays.
Ease medication dependence.
Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow, the body's natural defense system.
Stimulate and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
Help athletes of any level prepare and recover from, strenuous workouts.
Improve the condition of the body's largest organ, the skin.
Increase joint flexibility.
Relieve depression and anxiety.
Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
Reduce spasms and cramping.
Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
Release endorphins, which are amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
