Benefits of Massage

  • Relieves muscular pain and tension
  • Decreases mental stress and anxiety
  • Relieves and prevents headaches
  • Improves posture
  • Relieves nerve entrapment
  • Improves skin condition
  • Enhances the immune system
  • Improves blood and lymph circulation
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Reduces recovery time after injury
  • Reduces post-surgical adhesions and decreases scar tissue formation
  • Eases pregnancy and the birth process... and more!
