What are the health benefits?
Massage can provide welcome relief from the symptoms of anxiety, tension, depression, insomnia, and stress, as well as back pain, headache, muscle pain and some forms of chronic pain.
It's also frequently recommended for the treatment of minor sports injuries and repetitive stress injuries and for the enhancement of physical conditioning.
Massage decreases stress level - Massage relaxes painful and tight muscles. Massage stretches and kneads tight and painful muscles, gently separating individual fibers that may have become bound and knotted together.
Massage can help ease secondary pain - Massage can relieve secondary pain that builds up around a primary source of pain which can even sometimes last longer than the original cause.
Massage increases circulation throughout the body - This cleanses your body of waste products that can cause fatigue and sourness and massage also promotes restful sleep.
