Deeper Than Massage

Traditional massage & BODY TREATMENT



Massage is so much deeper than touch.

How often do we actually disconnect from our lives ? It has been shown that massage helps the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery stage that lingers long after treatment. There are many benefits of massage that most people do not even think of. One massage therapy session can lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels - all of which help reduce daily stress. 



We've all suffered from the soreness associated with over exercising. But did you know that most of us Americans experience neck, back and muscle pain from another less-strenuous activity? Surprisingly, it's sitting. Chronic back pain, which is the second most common cause of disability and a top reason for missing work, can be the result of improper posture while sitting and standing. In addition, carrying extra weight, poor posture, and repetitive or overuse movements can put strain on the back and other sensitive areas. This strain often results in spasms, tense muscles and pain in your upper back, hips, glutes and hamstrings.

Massage therapy (or muscular therapy) gets to the root of the pain by relaxing tense muscles and increasing flexibility. Massage also encourages blood flow to the affected muscles, which can bring increase oxygen and nutrients,. All of this treatment reduces swelling and stiffness and increases flexibility to help eliminate pain. Massage releases endorphins and boosts your levels of serotonin and dopamine, all hormones your body produces to help you feel good, promote healing and pain management, and calm your nerves.

When we have an minor injury such from a sprained ankle to muscle spasms or broken bones, massage helps aid in faster recovery. By the therapist stretching tight tissues and breaking down adhesions, massage can help flush out swelling in joints, allowing for quicker healing.
