Profound Effects

There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage therapy can, without a doubt, help manage stress.

Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch - which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage therapy is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage therapists to treat postsurgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.

Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage therapy. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.

Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you'll be and how youthful you'll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health.
