Benefits of massage therapy

Many of today’s health problems can benefit from massage therapy because the manipulation of soft tissues affects so many of our bodily systems. The benefits of a massage will directly affect the muscular, nervous, circulatory, and immune systems.

Massage treatments aim to:

  • Develop, maintain, rehabilitate, or augment physical function
  • Relieve or prevent physical dysfunction or pain
  • Relax tight and tense muscles
  • Improve circulation, recovery time, and immune system function
  • Reduce overall strength

Keep in mind that massage therapy is also effective in the control of pain, chronic or acute.
