What Is The Benefit of Massage Therapy?
In today’s busy world, we are often overwhelmed with physical, emotional & mental stress. The human body has an incredible ability to heal and regenerate itself under the right conditions. Human touch offers comfort, compassion and proven results in all our stages of growth and development, from pre-mature babies to active adults to senior citizens, even the family pet!
Massage provides improved circulation to soft tissues & joints, greater flexibility & range of motion, and increased feelings of relaxation & well-being amongst many others. Contrary to popular belief, massage does not necessarily require skin to skin contact; touch through loose clothing will also benefit those more self-conscious. Many also believe that massage is either a superficial luxury, or on the other end of the spectrum a deeply painful encounter. A fully trained Registered Massage Therapist is able to work with the needs of the client so that they are comfortable at all times, and encourage you to give feedback during and after the treatment for maximum benefit. When a therapist touches on a tender spot, this is generally an area where your body is holding tension and stress, and even gentle manipulation can achieve results.
Physical touch is a basic human need in addition to food, water & shelter, and plays a big part in our emotional & social well-being too. Many families are covered and investing in massage therapy already under extended health-care benefits. Massage is a wise investment in preventive care; benefit from massage therapy as a regular part of any health maintenance program.
