Massage Benefits

Massage therapy can be a powerful tool in your wellbeing plan.


Massage is one of the oldest healing arts. Today, the benefits of massage are mostly scientifically proven, varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, fatigue, high blood pressure, immunity suppression, reducing inflammation in the body, smoking cessation, depression, and more. Massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to illness and disease.

Regardless of the adjectives assigned to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons it is sought (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful tool in your wellbeing plan.
