Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues. It can assist in healing multiple ailments of the body. Massage therapy assists in alleviating stress levels, it helps to increase circulation and lymph flow, lowers blood pressure, helps those tight and achy muscles, and the list goes on and on.
Regular massage therapy sessions not only help with existing symptoms/conditions, it is also a preventative measure. A continuous maintenance schedule promotes general wellbeing, allowing the client to become more in tune with their body and its specific needs. Being aware of everyday habits, posture, stretching, water intake, and how our body functions allows clients to readjust their habits to better themselves.
A huge benefactor of massage therapy is the overall feeling of relaxation, calmness and peace a client feels during/after the session. In this high stress world we all live in right now, it is very hard for someone to completely unwind, we always have a million things on the go it seems. A massage therapist provides a safe space, designed to promote relaxation. During a massage, cortisol levels (our body’s response to stress) decrease, serotonin, and oxytocin are released, (our body’s natural happy pills) creating a sense of deep, restorative relaxation. Increased circulation , decreased muscle tension/achiness also will help to promote relaxation. High stress levels are very detrimental to the body. Massage therapy wipes stress away, helps educate the client about their specific needs, targets any muscle dysfunction that may be going on, and assists in healing.
