Benefits of Massage and Bodywork

General benefits of massage therapy may include:

  • Released chronic muscle tension
  • Increased joint flexibility
  • Increased circulation
  • Decreased anxiety and stress
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Improved concentration
  • Reduced fatigue


Localized manual therapy and bodywork using specific techniques and focus may be extremely helpful in alleviating pain by:


  • Relaxing injured and overused muscles,
  • Stretching tight and atrophied muscles,
  • Increasing joint flexibility and range of motion, 
  • Reducing scar tissue, adhesions and swelling,
  • Improving circulation by increasing oxygen and nutrient flow into the tissues,
  • Postural alignment
  • Releasing endorphins-- the body's natural painkillers, and
  • Stimulating lymph flow--the body's natural defense system.

The gift of touch offered through massage therapy is an unexpected and thoughtful way to express your sincere care for your friends and loved ones.


A massage also makes a great gift idea for graduations, housewarmings, bridal and baby showers, employee recognition awards, thank-you and congratulations presents.
