Health benefits of massage therapy
Eases muscle pain
Got sore muscles? Massage therapy can help. Massage increases and improves circulation, in much the same way rubbing your elbow when you knock it on a table helps to relieve the pain.
It soothes anxiety and depression
Human touch, in a context that is safe, friendly and professional, can be incredibly therapeutic and relaxing.
It improves sleep
Not only can massage encourage a restful sleep-it also helps those who can’t otherwise comfortably rest.
- Massage promotes relaxation and sleep in those undergoing chemo or radiation therapy
- Also, if you’re a new parent, you’ll be happy to know it can help infants sleep more, cry less and be less stressed
- Massage decreases frequency and severity of tension headaches
