There is no reason to be in pain

Benefits of Massage

  • In an age of technical, and at times impersonal medicine, massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body's natural ability to heal itself
  • Increases circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs
  • Stimulates the flow of lymph, the body's natural defense system, against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer
  • Increased circulation of blood and lymph systems improves the condition of the body's largest organ - the skin
  • Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles
  • Reduces spasms and cramping
  • Increases joint flexibility
  • Reduces recovery time, helps prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pains of the athlete at any level
  • Releases endorphins - the body's natural painkiller - and is being used in chronic illness, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain
  • Reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema, can be used to reduce/realign scar tissue after healing has occurred
  • Improves range-of-motion and decreases discomfort for patients with low back pain
  • Relieves pain for migraine sufferers and decreases the need for medication
  • Provides exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reduces shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion
