What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage is more than a frivolous, feel-good indulgence. It actually has many important health benefits.
The benefits of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most benefits. Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body, and help to prevent unnecessary strains and injuries.
Worked into your lifestyle in whatever way is best for you, massage can be an extremely effective tool for taking care of yourself, your health and well being.
Massage therapy largely affects those muscles just under the skin. Its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves. Massage stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system, improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.
Massage can stimulate or calm the nervous system and help reduce fatigue. You experience a feeling of replenished energy. At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally and spiritually.
Taking time for yourself – whether it’s 30 minutes, an hour, or an hour and a half – is a vital part of caring for yourself. You deserve to feel good and be relaxed. Relieving the aches and tension that daily life can cause without you even realizing it can make a big difference towards how you feel.
