benefitsIn an age of technical and impersonal medicine, massage offers a drug-free, noninvasive and humanistic approach based on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch, which range from treating chronic aches, neurological disorders, injuries and alleviating the tensions of modern day life. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork allowing massage to slowly segue its way into western medicine. Experts estimate that 80-90% of disease is stress related and perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can help to manage and reduce that stress. Massage does more than just relax your body and mind – there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur. With bodywork used as a preventative measure or as a medical wellness plan the quality of your life can and will be drastically improved.
