Benefits of Massage Therapy

We are all interconnected

It’s amazing, really, how every part of our body is connected to the rest of the whole.  When we are injured or stressed in one area, this dis-ease eventually moves up (or down) the chain, and then at some point very soon we experience neck pain, hip pain, headaches, and so on.  Much of the time we don’t even recognize how a specific muscle or joint is stressed, until we see the effect somewhere else, distantly, in the body.

It is the same with massage.  Bodywork effects can be quite profound, and having a full massage will also create and foster the environment for self-healing in multiple parts of your body.  Getting a massage is an investment in your health for today and in the future.  Here are just a few benefits of regular massage:
