Massage Therapy

The benefits of massage therapy go beyond the physical body. The efficacy of massage therapy in treating stress is well supported by research. Massage therapy helps to reduce emotional stress, which in turn will reduce or eliminate the production of stress chemicals in the body. Stress chemicals (the fight or flight response) can have negative effects on the body when produced over long periods of time. When certain massage techniques are applied slowly and rhythmically to the back or neck for example, we can help quiet the mind and bring a sense of body awareness back to the person. The communication of caring touch is also recognized by health professionals as an important part of both physical and emotional pain relief.
