Investing in massage is an investment in your health.
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:

  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.

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

  • 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.
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • 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 postsurgery 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.

Swedish Massage is the most common type of massage and is designed to relax the entire body. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on the top layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish Massage can be both relaxing and energizing.
Deep Tissue Massage is used to release chronic muscle tension. The therapist uses slow, deep strokes and friction with the intent of massaging the muscle that lies underneath. It’s believed to increase blood flow.

Myofascial Release Massage stretches the matrix and returns it to it’s original elastic and liquid state. Fascia surrounds your muscles and bones and the matrix portion of the fascia tends to thicken like glue over time so that movement is restricted or stopped. The result to your body is that the bones and muscles are allowed to return to their original position and move with less effort. People who work at desks for prolonged periods of time or work in unusual positions for prolonged periods of time, like dentists, musicians or singers could benefit from this modality.
