The Benefits of Massage

Current research is beginning to validate what most clients already know about massage therapy: it can help ease or prevent many common ailments that are often treated with prescription drugs and/or hospitalization.  Massage therapy is based on the ability of the body to naturally heal itself.

Massage has been shown to:

  • decrease stress
  • increase circulation
  • release muscle tension
  • improve joint range of motion and flexibility
  • release endorphins
  • diminish aches and pains
  • reduce anxiety and depression associated with anorexia, bulimia, post traumatic stress disorder and chronic fatigue syndrome

Therapeutic massage is an important part of your health maintenance plan.

A registered massage therapist is a regulated health professional who has received two to three years of comprehensive training in health sciences, physiology, pathology, anatomy and over 2200 hours of hands on training.
