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.
