THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into:
• Decreased anxiety.
• Enhanced sleep quality.
• Greater energy.
• Improved concentration.
• Increased circulation.
• Reduced fatigue.
In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body, with profound effects. Research shows that with massage:
• Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain.
• Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow.
• Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety.
• High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.
• Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping.
• Preterm infants have improved weight gain..
Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat post surgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.
Massage is a scientific method of manipulating the soft tissues of the body to have specific effect. Its objective is the restoration of function, release of tension and the re-establishment of the contours where this is desirable.
Remember, just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.

Extra care is taken to not over-stretch the joints and ligaments which are more flexible during this time. Great care is taken to avoid deep pressure, especially on specific points (primarily located on the feet hands, arms, and lower legs) that are known to to exert too much influence on the energy flow through the pregnant woman's body. The intention is to provide relief, especially in the lower back and legs, from the transformation in weight bearing and the possible changes in water retention. We work just deeply enough to release stress and induce relaxation, but not too much that we stress the baby (or the mother) through dramatic changes in the mother's blood flow and body "chemistry." Pregnancy is one of the most important periods in which to receive caring and supportive, therapeutic touch. We`re invite you to nurture your body with prenatal massage therapy during this time of dramatic transformation.
