Top Ten Reasons to Receive Massage Therapy

I can’t say it enough. I LOVE MASSAGE. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING about it.  It is truly such a special form within the Allied Healthcare Industry.

The unique quality I have found about Massage Therapy is that anyone can receive some benefit by receiving a Massage.  If you have never experienced Massage Therapy before, this list will give you an idea of how it can be such a wonderful (and needed) addition into your life.

Rest and Relaxation

I know that everyone lives are SO busy. Between work, family, and personal to-dos, we barely get time for ourselves! Massage Therapy calms the mind, reduces stress and muscle tension.

Improves Sleep

Quality sleep is vital to our health and wellness. Massage Therapy can help regulate the hormones Serotonin and Melatonin, which are brain messengers that are important for regulating our sleep cycles and our moods.

Improves Circulation

Massage Therapy can improve your circulation and increase levels of oxygen and nutrients in your blood to be delivered throughout your body.

Reduce or Alleviate Pain

Massage Therapy helps to block the nervous systems pain receptors and increases blood flow to the muscles. AKA Circulation!

Boost your Immune System

Massage Therapy stimulates the lymph system. This system controls the flow of toxic waste from the muscles, organs and tissues for improved health and digestion.

Enhance Muscle Performance

Massage Therapy helps to break up scar tissue, improves flexibility, and increases range of motion.

Improve Posture

Massage Therapy can improve posture by helping to train muscles to be in the right position allowing for better support to our structure.

Prevent Injury or Illness

Tense muscles tighten and pull the body out of alignment and restrict circulation.  Regular Massage Therapy can increase circulation and relax the body to prevent chronic conditions from taking hold.

Enhance and Maintain Good Health

Massage Therapy helps to reduce heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and strengthens your immune system.

Improve Quality of Life

Massage Therapy can provide comfort to people with Chronic Medical Conditions, by providing care,  and relaxation.
