Benefits of Massage Therapy
Just like a well-oiled machine, our bodies need regular maintenance through physical therapies such as massage treatments. People of all ages can benefit from regular therapeutic massage; athletes, working professionals, pregnant women and individuals recovering from illnesses or injuries. The added benefit of improving blood circulation is also a big plus for those with chronic circulatory inefficiencies.
Improving Athletic Performance
Massage therapy can improve training goals through conditioning of the body via stretching and strengthening of the muscles and improving joint mobilities and ranges of motion. Recovery time are reduced following injuries by treating the soft tissues involved and other compensatory musculatures.
Correct Poor Postures
Chronic holding patterns and incorrect postures that have resulted in over-stretched and hypertonic muscles can also be strengthened and stretched, respectfully, to restore proper posture. Often these postural imbalances are what causes you neck, shoulders, and back pains in the first place.
Psychological & Mental Well-Being
Studies have shown that regular massage therapy promotes relaxation and increases endorphin levels, which in turn make us happier. The body-mind connection cannot be underestimated as mental health is directly related to physical well-being.
