Massage therapy is an age-old practice that has been proven to improve physical, emotional, and psychological benefits for its users. At Body Works Health & Wellness, we offer massage therapy services aimed to help improve both the patients’ health and their well-being.
Much like those of chiropractic care, the benefits of massage therapy seem to be endless, with new studies constantly popping up, dedicated to demonstrating the innumerable benefits that massage therapy can assist with. Some of those benefits have been: a reduction in pain and inflammation, relief from muscle tension and/or nerve compression, an increase in flexibility, and has also helped improve circulation, healing, relaxation, and energy.
Individuals suffering from several physical conditions and/or having issues with anxiety have found massage therapy beneficial to their physical and mental health. Arthritis sufferers find that regular massage therapy sessions have helped to aid in reducing the inflammation that exists within their joints, as well as, has helped to increase their flexibility and mobility. Those suffering from tension headaches have rediscovered the relief that comes from reducing muscle tension. And those searching for new ways to encourage the healing process to injured areas of the body, find that the rhythmic, guided massage hands have helped to increase the circulation in their body; this allows the body to deliver oxygen and nutrients vital to healing, which in turn helps to reduce scar tissue and aids in recovering from things such as, sports injuries, accident injuries, and even repetitive stress injuries.
The physical and mental benefits of massage therapy are often related, with one affecting the other; Reducing mental stress and relaxation, in general, directly cause physical benefits such as lowering heart and respiratory rates, as well as, lowering blood pressure, which all have an infinitely positive affect on the body’s overall health.
