Most of us are bombarded with stress on a daily basis, and many jobs today require us to be sedentary and/or require repetitive joint movements (e. g. computer work, driving). These stressors can contribute to imbalances in the body and lead to dysfunction or injury. As suggested by research, Massage Therapy can be useful in combating the harmful effects of stress, preventing injury, and facilitating recovery by providing the following benefits:
Increased circulation to joints, muscles, and organs
Increased range of motion
Facilitating optimal movement patterns to improve performance and prevent injuries
Decreasing harmful cortisol and increasing happy hormones dopamine and serotonin
Pain reduction--recent studies suggest massage therapy may even be more effective in reducing pain than pharmaceuticals…and no harmful side effects.
