why is routine massage therapy so important?

Our muscles and organs need oxygen to heal and function properly; this is one of the key benefits of massage therapy since it stimulates blood flow and optimizes toxin removal through the use of petrissage and effleurage movements. The physical stimulation created through massage therapy treatments help dissolve and eliminate toxin build up in tissues. Regular massages also help provide oxygen and other necessary nutrients to our blood which in return, relieves back pain, heals sore muscles and benefits your overall health and well-being. By increasing the movement of the lymphatic and circulatory system, therapists can improve the health of the tissue and stimulate neurological activities.

 

Our therapists typically recommend that you stay hydrated to help reduce the buildup of toxins in the body. This is especially important after the session when toxins have been mobilized and the kidneys can benefit from adequate hydration to remove them through elimination.  

Our office is happy to offer prenatal massage in addition to our other massage therapy services. Prenatal massage has numerous physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits, including:

Natural pain relief as conditions such as lower and upper-back pain, joint and ligament pain. sciatica, headaches, nerve pain etc. arise with body changes body during pregnancy

 

Hormone regulation, as regular massage care can decrease stress hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol and increase serotonin and dopamine

 

Improved blood circulation, which provides more oxygen and nutrients to travel to mom and baby, as well as reduced swelling
