Many people offer feel-good massage. Not here. Well, not exactly… While massage generally produces a euphoric endorphin response, therapeutic massage is specifically targeted to improve the function and structure of the body and to heal particular conditions and areas, promoting whole-body wellness. It does not focus exclusively on relaxation, but does include soothing strokes that help ease the nervous system and provide an overall sense of calm. A fairly nice bonus, I might add.
What this means to you. Therapeutic massage has been proved to provide acute and chronic pain relief, decreased anxiety and depression, increased energy, improved posture and flexibility, relief from migraine and tension headaches, enhanced mood from increased endorphin release (the body’s natural painkillers), improved immune response through increased blood and lymph circulation, faster recovery from soft tissue injuries and scars, improved concentration, better sleep quality, and help for athletes of any level to prepare for and recover from muscle strain.
As with most things in life, results will vary and cannot be guaranteed.
