Emotional Benefits of Massage Therapy

  • Reduces anxiety

  • Massage Reduces the Effects of Stress

    Up to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress related complaints such as headaches, anxiety, backaches, neck pain, eyestrain, poor concentration, depression, irritability, anger, high blood pressure, heart disease, ulcers, as well as physical and emotional exhaustion.

    Massage therapy has an amazing effect on your body’s nervous system.  When it is activated, it counteracts your negative response to stress, relaxing muscle tension and allowing your heart rate, blood pressure and circulation to return to normal.

    Massage therapy also help you become more aware of your body and your unconsciously held tension.  As you become more aware of your body, you will begin to recognize tension as it builds during the day so that you can consciously release it before it can have a negative effect on your body.
