BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPYLower stress - The long-term effects of stress can take emotional and physical tolls. Massage therapy may relieve stress and conditions associated with it, such as tension headaches.
Increase immune function - Medical research indicates that massage therapy can help boost immune system strength by increasing the activity level of the body’s natural "killer T cells,” which fight off viruses
Boost mental health & wellness - Research suggests that symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression (all associated with mental health) may be directly affected with massage therapy.
Manage pain - Pain can negatively affect a person’s quality of life and impede recovery from illness or injury. Recent findings highlight the role of massage in pain management.
Improve physical fitness - Elite and recreational athletes alike can benefit from massage therapy—massage can reduce muscle tension, improve exercise performance and prevent injuries.
