Benefits of Massage

Massage has the potential to help create and restore health. The benefits of massage may include:

Relaxation and pampering, stress management, and connection to a sense of ease, pleasure, and health in the body

Relief for conditions related to muscle pain, tension, or imbalance — such as low back pain, tension headaches, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and sciatic pain

Preventive care for optimal health of soft tissue and after-care for injuries such as strains, sprains, tendinitis, and whiplash

Complementary care for complex conditions, such as cancer, for which a person is receiving treatment — to help preserve tissue health, increase range of motion, improve sleep, and enhance well-being

Mental and emotional shifts, such as improved anxiety or depression and integration of emotions (processing emotional experiences through the physical body)
