Benefits of Massage

The field of therapeutic massage and bodywork draws from touch therapies of both Western and non-Western traditions. Practitioners incorporate knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology to address soft tissue dysfunctions, stress-related conditions and energy imbalances.

Massage therapy has been proven effective in:

  • Relieving back pain
  • Boosting immune system
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Treating migraines
  • Decreasing carpal tunnel symptoms
  • Easing post-operative pain
  • Alleviating side effects of cancer
