A life without pain can become a reality – and regular massage can help! Massage helps the body function more efficiently to release toxins, experience healthier alignment, function and improved overall health. Seeing a licensed massage therapist, (like me!) once or twice a month can dramatically help with these common ailments:
Anxiety & depression. Massage is not only relaxing, it reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol while boosting serotonin and dopamine. In short, it makes you feeeel good. Imagine finally feeling good.
Eating disorders. Studies show that massage aids in lowering stress and anxiety levels, while increasing healthy body image! Just think of how transformative counseling and massage therapy could be if combined and offered to those in need. Check out the good work of these local organizations to see the benefits of a healthy self image: Morning After Ministries, Thistle Farms, and Mercy Ministries.
Headaches, carpal tunnel & TMJD. Pesky chronic pain! With regular massage, as levels of cortisol decrease, so do inflammation and pain. Connective tissue massage extends these benefits and opens up the tissue for lasting relief. You could be the proud owner of a happy neck, happy wrists, and happy jaw!
Chronic & temporary pain. The benefits of massage are consistent and in alignment with those reported through other effective treatments like acupuncture, exercise, and yoga – what if you combined them all! Regular bodywork is also linked to decreased stiffness, fatigue, and aches. It’s wonderful for increased range of motion, and most importantly – less pain.
Which face matches how you feel? I know which one I’d rather be…
Insomnia. Have you ever dozed off on a massage table? That’s experiential proof – and science confirms – massage affects deep sleep delta waves in our brains! How much more peaceful and productive we could be if we availed ourselves to regular massage? You can experience more satisfying sleep and more rested mornings.
Stress. Even a 15-minute chair massage can provide you a dramatically restorative break from stress. Bonus points for also increasing focus and productivity! Partnered with the extraordinary benefits of human contact, it only boosts the immediate and lasting benefits.
Prevention. The healthiest of people can benefit enormously from regular massage. It helps your immune system increase the body’s white blood cell count – a natural healer – and keeps you well. Imagine being healthy. It is available to you right now!
