|Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:|
|• Decreased anxiety||• Enhanced sleep quality||• Greater energy|
|• Improved concentration||• Increased circulation||• Reduced fatigue|
Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:
- Alleviate low-back pain.
- Aid in the recovery of injuries due to car accidents, repetitive stress, and sports.
- Reduce muscle spasms and cramping.
- Provide relief of carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, and fibromyalgia.

- Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.

- Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
- Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
- Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.

- Lessen depression and anxiety.
- Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
- Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
