Therapeutic massage is the hands-on manipulation of the body's soft tissues (i.e. the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints) for the purpose of optimizing health, and has been proven to enhance the health and well-being of the body.
But how can you be sure it is the best form of treatment for you?
Well, if like my many clients, you understand that:
Consistent self-care reduces pain and improves your quality of life. Prioritizing your own self-care is the best way to decrease any symptoms of pain or discomfort you may be experiencing. It also helps to keep you at your physical best, so you can function well whether you're at home, work or play.
To 'unplug' is sublime. Many individuals who receive massage regularly, consider the time they spend on the massage table to be precious, as it gives them the freedom to completely relax and focus solely on themselves. Having the chance to get away from the noise and chaos of the world on the other side of the massage room door may be just what you need to feel like yourself again.
Touch is powerful. Touch has been proven to enhance brain function, lower blood pressure and heart rate, reduce symptoms of asthma, and even boost your mood. Needless to say, receiving positive touch is not only good for you, it's a key to maintain your overall health and well-being.
Then taking time out for a relaxing and restorative therapeutic massage is the right choice for you.
