Massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen...

Massage therapy is hands down one of the best things you can do for your health. Massage was used by several ancient cultures to treat injuries and cure deadly conditions, and became the preferred treatment for sports and war injuries. Massage therapy continues to hold its place as one of the most effective, safe and natural ways to treat mental and physical ailments, such as stress, pain, anxiety and depression.

The number one reason people get a massage is to relieve pain. Whether it’s chronic pain from an illness or cramps from excessive exercising, massage therapy is the key to relieving pain in a holistic, noninvasive manner. Massages provide pain relief through applied pressure, muscle relaxation and increased circulation. With regular massage therapy sessions, patients can reduce muscle cramps and spasms, stiffness and prevent headaches and backaches.

Experts estimate that nearly 80% of disease is stress related and more than likely, nothing ages us faster, inside and out, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether from our lives may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into: decreased anxiety, enhanced sleep quality, increased energy levels, improved concentration, increased circulation, reduced fatigue, improved immune system as well as all of the physical benefits including improved posture and flexibility, faster recovery from injury and clearing toxins from your body and of course assist with shorter, easier labour for expectant mothers
