General Benefits of Massage Therapy
Therapeutic massage enhances the restorative qualities in all the body systems!
It relaxes tight muscles, relieves soreness, aches, and stiffness and enhances
tissue elasticity and joint flexibility. Further it deactivates trigger points
of pain, lowers the potential for further injury, increases metabolism and improves
circulation. Massage therapy also enhances skin condition by improved function
of the sebaceous and sweat glands. It improves immune system functions facilitating
better health, resistance to colds and other illness and Stimulates nerves that
supply internal organs, allowing improved blood supply. Of great importance,
it removes waste products to provide better cell nutrition and faster healing
of injuries. Therapeutic massage also has terrific psychological benefits. It brings
people into the Here and Now, away from preoccupation with thoughts and problems;
Animates the tactile senses; Loosens muscle tensing or “armoring” —the physical
counterpart to how we try to protect ourselves from emotional pain — can lead
to freeing of repressed emotions

Massage Therapy is DRUGLESS THERAPY

Some of the problems that respond well to massage therapy include: Headaches,
insomnia, digestive disorders (including constipation and spastic colon), arthritis,
carpal tunnel syndrome, sinusitis, and minor aches and pains, and rest and
relaxation for anxious individuals relying on drugs for rest.
