Benefits of Massage and Bodywork



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:

  • Altering compensation patterns (how you hold your body in response to physical changes or pain).
  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced healing instinct.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Improved circulation to the area being massaged bringing oxygen and nutrients to aid growth and repair.
  • Interfering with chronic stress patterns.
  • Providing a sensation of being cared for.
  • Reduced fatigue.
  • Sedating the sympathetic nervous system.
  • Soothing and providing comfort and relaxation.
  • Toning muscles.

Bodywork can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:

  • Aids digestion and bowel elimination by stimulating peristalsis
  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Helps eliminate toxins and waste products by stimulating the lymphatic system
  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility and movement (where appropriate)
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.
