Massage, Relief you knead

Is massage a luxury or a necessity? Massage has been seen as a once or perhaps twice a year, "treat yourself" or way to "pamper" your loved ones. But Therapeutic Massage is so much more than that. So many of my clients come in, after suffering for years with chronic pain only to find out that it can be alleviated with a massage. They look at me like I'm some kind of magical wizard but the truth is that the body wants to be in balance. A massage therapist works with the tissue to release knots, trigger points, adhesions and scar tissue to relieve pain and restore homeostasis. The massage also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system activating our body's relaxation response. It's anatomy and physiology! Not a miracle. ​

So why do we walk around stressed out and in pain when there is a solution? Some of us, take better care of our cars than we do of our own bodies. How do you maintain your body? Maybe it's time for a tune up.

One of my missions is to educate others on the benefits of Therapeutic Massage and the benefits reach far beyond just pain relief. Here are 25 Reasons to get a massage from AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association.)
