Restorative Stress Reduction are great benefits of massage. Concentrating on the health of tissues that hold and move the body and on the circulation of blood, lymph and cellular fluid, massage helps to restore the mind-body connection, induce relaxation, release emotional stressors, and improve posture and flexibility as it eliminates toxic waste and enhances the immune system.
Therapeutic Medical Massage helps facilitate healing of injuries, stress areas and adhesions (“knots”), repetitive-use syndromes, and surgical and fracture sites. This type of body work can reduce pain and swelling, and provides both support and comfort when more serious medical conditions exist.
