What Can Massage Really Do?

Far beyond simply “feeling good,” massage has an impressive range of therapeutic effects and benefits, many of which have been documented in research studies conducted in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

With a variety of hands-on methods, a skilled massage therapist not only stretches and loosens muscle and connective tissue, but also greatly improves blood flow to the heart and the movement of lymph fluid throughout the body. The therapistʼs hands speed the removal of metabolic waste products resulting from exercise or inactivity, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to reach the cells and tissues. Sensory receptors in skin and muscles “wake up,” bringing new awareness to areas that have felt “cut off” by chronic tension patterns.

The release of muscle tension also helps to unblock and balance the overall flow of life energy throughout the body. All this translates into an amazing number of possible tangible results:
