Benefits of Massage
Pressure specifically interrupts impulses to the spinal cord, reduces the intensity of nervous activity within the tissue and mechanically forces out toxic irritants which have accumulated within the nervous and soft tissue systems. The muscle then relaxes, circulation is increased and the body returns to normal neurological balance.
Following is a brief list of the many known, research-based benefits of massage and bodywork:
Increases circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs;
Stimulates the flow of lymph, the body’s natural defense system, against toxic invaders;
Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles;
Reduces spasms and cramping;
Increases joint flexibility;
Reduces recovery time and helps prepare the body for strenuous workouts, reducing subsequent muscle pain of athletes at any level;
Releases endorphins – the body’s natural painkiller – and is proving very beneficial in patients with chronic illness, injury, and post-op pain;
Reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema and can be used to reduce and realign scar tissue after healing has occurred;
Improves range-of-motion and decreases discomfort for patients with low back pain;
Relieves pain for migraine suffers and decreases the need for medication;
Provides exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reduces shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion;
Assists with shorter labor for expectant mothers, as well as reduces the need for medication, eases postpartum depression and anxiety, and contributes to a shorter hospital stay.
