The benefits of massage are innumerable. Some would say the most important benefit of massage is stress relief. Stress of any kind will manifest itself physically as muscle tension. This tension can lead to chronic pain. Using massage to relieve stress will keep you happier and healthier, both now and in the future.
Regular massage therapy keeps your muscles and joints healthy. Another key benefit of massage is to prevent pain and injury from occurring in the first place. If you are already suffering from pain, therapeutic massage can help the body to heal more quickly by increasing circulation to the area and working out any knots that are impeding your progress.
What to Expect
At the beginning of your session, the massage therapist will sit down with you to discuss your reasons for making the appointment and answer any questions you may have. This will be followed by an assessment and a massage created to reach your goals for the session.
After the massage, the therapist will review any important findings and make recommendations. Plan on leaving the office feeling good and relaxed, well informed and with peace of mind.
