Do I Need a Massage?

The short answer is yes. ​​​​​​​

The longer answer is that massage is so much more than something nice to do for yourself. According to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), as much as 90% of illnesses are stress-related including high blood pressure, depression and migraines.  The complications from stress-related problems can be devastating and painful. 

Massage positively affects every bodily system and is one of the safest forms of complementary therapies to western medicine. It is a passive and drug-free option for reducing pain and combating the stress that is so prevalent today. 

A few of the benefits of massage include: 

  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Boosting mental health and wellness
  • Promoting better sleep patterns
  • Improving the immune system
  • Reducing fatigue and boosting energy
  • Reducing or eliminating pain

You may be dealing with chronic pain, muscle tension, stress, depression, migraines or fibromyalgia. Perhaps you simply need to relax in a stress-free environment. Whatever you are dealing with, there is a massage that can help. 

I would love the opportunity to work with you to make massage part of your regular stress-management regimen.
