Benefits of Massage
Stress Reduction Massage therapy can be beneficial for relieving stress related symptoms. This occurs for many reasons, but primarily is a result of the following:
The Relaxation Response may be induced by massage, resulting in: slower heart rate, lower blood pressure, and better circulation to the internal organs. This also reduces anxiety and promotes a feeling of well being.
Muscular Relaxation occurs as circulation to tight muscles is increased and pain resulting from chronic tension is decreased. Massage releases endorphins, the body's own pain killers. Chronically tight muscles are allowed to loosen while also calming the nerves.
Body Awareness is enhanced during massage, helping restore the balance between body and mind frequently lost in stressful situations. This increased awareness helps the body and mind to function as an efficient, balanced and productive unit.
