Tremendous benefits may be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments from a Registered Massage Therapist. Whether you need to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being as well as your quality of life.
Massage therapy has a wide range of benefits for the health and wellness of people of all ages, including infants, children, older adults, pregnant women, athletes, office workers, and so on. These benefits are known to include: effective reduction and management of pain, alleviation of depression and anxiety, improved immune function and increase in ‘natural killer cells’, reduction of inflammation, facilitation of weight gain in pre-term infants, improved body awareness and body image, decreased body dissatisfaction in patients with eating disorders, decrease in stress hormones, enhanced healing of burns and scar tissue, improved sleep, reduction of muscle tension, improved joint mobility, improved posture, and improved lymphatic drainage.
Massage therapy can be used in the treatment of both acute and chronic stages of conditions. While massage therapy can benefit the injured, the ill and the stressed, the strength of massage therapy in preventing illness and conditions before they develop should not be overlooked.
