The benefits of massage therapy are well known in the medical community.
The squeezing and pulling of the tissues detoxes by flushing lactic acid from the muscles into the lymph system to be carried away as waste, resulting in lower blood pressure and improved circulation and body function.
If you’re an active person you need a massage. Lactic acid causes muscle soreness. Simple chores like gardening, or activities like cycling and walking can cause muscle stiffness which limits your range of motion over time. Massage benefits are accelerated muscle recovery after a workout and increased stamina.
Our therapists will help loosen your muscles and flush out the lactic acid.
Improves Range of Motion
Tight muscles can cause injuries and cause over exertion. As your muscles tighten up, your range of motion diminishes, which in turn makes other muscles tighten and compensate.
Our massage experts will work your muscles and joints to make them more flexible, loosen your tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue, plus give your aching muscles relaxing deep-tissue massage.
Always mention to the therapist any history or issues they should know about in order to tailor the massage specifically to your needs.
Headaches and migraines are among the most common disorders of the human nervous system worldwide. That’s due to an increase in stress and toxins in the body. A steady build-up in anxiety and tension in the back, neck, shoulders, and head can lead to blinding headaches.
Massage therapy releases tension with a series of techniques designed to decrease immediate pain while loosening up the underlying musculature. This releases pain well past the massage therapy session.
Tension can cause sleep disorders. Tense muscles make it impossible to lie comfortably in bed, disturbing sleep patterns further. A lack of proper sleep can increase the levels of stress during the day. This creates a self-supporting cycle of discomfort.
Massage therapy improves the restorative properties of your sleep by increasing the levels of serotonin in the bloodstream. These naturally released compounds are believed to contribute to proper regulation of important body functions like appetite, mood, and sleeping patterns.
