There are so many benefits to massage.

  • Relaxes muscle spasms and relieves tension.
  • Can compensate, at least in part, for lack of exercise and muscular contraction¬†for people who because of injury are forced to remain inactive due to injury, illness or age. In these cases, massage helps return venous blood to the heart and¬†therefore eases the strain on this vital organ.
  • Improves the general circulation and nutrition of all tissues. It is accompanied or followed by an increased interchange of substances between the blood and tissue cells, thereby heightening tissue metabolism.
  • Flushes out toxins and lactic acid build-up after strenuous athletic training, as well as prevents muscular stiffness.
  • Calms the mind, -promotes emotional balance and sense of well-being, all in a nurturing environment.
  • Sets up the conditions for the body to heal itself
