Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension, which, experts believe, accounts for 80% of disease. Massage has been proven beneficial in treating cancer-related fatigue, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, low back pain, immunity suppression, spinal cord injury, post-operative surgery, age-related disorders, and depression, to name just a few. Massage increases circulation to all areas of the body which means that more oxygen goes to the tissues, enabling them to function more efficiently, removes toxins and waste products that build up in the tissues, reduces recovery time from certain injuries, prevents muscle strains and aches, increases flexibility and joint mobility, and the softening of the connective tissues that permeates the body results in more relaxed muscles and creates more efficient organ function.

Massage has many physiological effects, such as:

  • Increased circulation to all areas of the body. This means that more oxygen goes to the tissues, enabling them to function more efficiently.
  • Removal of toxins and waste products that build up in the tissues.
  • Reduction in recovery time from certain injuries.
  • Softening of the connective tissue that permeates the body, resulting in more relaxed muscles and more efficient organ function.
  • Breaking of the pain-tension cycle, which helps prevent muscle strains and aches.
  • Increased flexibility and joint mobility.
  • Better muscular balance throughout the body, resulting in effective support for other healing modalities, such as chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation.
