Benefits of Massage & Reflexology
Massage therapy is more than relaxing me-time. Studies continue to prove the physical, and emotional benefits of even a single massage therapy session. As the number of proven health benefits grows, so do the number of people who turn to massage for a more balanced, healthy lifestyle.
How can Massage Therapy be Medically Beneficial?
Relieves Stress and Encourages Relaxation
Stress relief is key to achieving a healthier lifestyle. Even a single massage session can significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels-all of which help reduce daily stress.
Decreases Pain and Improves Mood
Massage gets to the root of pain by relaxing tense muscles while increasing the release of endorphins-the bodies natural painkillers and mood enhancers. Clients report fewer aches, less stiffness, pain and anxiety.
Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can be relaxing to correct. Massage helps reinforce healthy and natural movements, which can get your posture back on track.
Promotes Deeper and Easier Breathing
One of the telltale signs of anxiety and stress is constricted breathing. Massage can play an important role in relieving respiratory issues and training the body how to relax.
The pressure created by massage therapy moves blood through congested areas; this causes new blood to flow in, resulting in improved body functions.
Lowers Blood Pressure
High blood pressure has more misconceptions than nearly any other medical condition, but one effective way to stave off high blood pressure naturally is massage therapy.
Improves Flexibility and Range of Motion
As we age, joints tend to tighten, making range of motion more restricted. Massage helps keep joints become more fluid, making you more flexible and less prone to injury.

45 million Americans suffer from chronic headaches and migraines. Massage helps ease the pressure and pain, which can also reduce the chance and frequency of headaches.
Strengthens the Immune System
Studies indicate that regular massage can naturally increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity–the activity level of the body’s natural "killer cells" and by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
Enhances Post-Operative Rehabilitation
Massage helps the body pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs while reducing scar tissue, adhesions and swelling.
