5 Surprising Work Benefits Of Massage Therapy
(That We Bet You Didn’t Know)

Believe it or not, researchers estimate that 80% of disease is caused by stress. The very word itself suggests it, DIS-EASE, not at ease with the world. And you’re not alone.

The stress of work and every day living can trigger many health problems such as high blood pressure, migraines, back problems, poor circulation, susceptibility to illness, and many others.

Millions of people develop illnesses or chronic health conditions because of stress. How often have you said to yourself, “I wish I could handle this better!”

The good news is you can! To counteract stress, you must have a self-care plan in place. And while diet and exercise are critical to balancing the impact of stress, they are not always the most welcomed part of a self-care plan.

Massage, on the other hand, is the one lifestyle “correction” measure that people love. You show up with all your knots and tight muscles, and we work our magic.

But how does massage, typically called a “feel good” or “pampering” therapy help you to manage everyday stress?

Massage has been clinically proven to:

• Strengthen your immune system
• Reduce blood pressure
• Increase circulation
• Increases oxygen
• Break the cycle of pain
• Increase flexibility
• Decrease stress hormones

Because massage removes toxins and inflammation from your body, it gives your body a chance to slow down and heal. That loosey-goosey sensation you have after a massage is actually working on a deeper level to break old stress and pain cycles.

For you, that means:

1. Greater mental clarity and alertness
2. Speedier recovery from fatigue
3. Aching backs and migraines significantly diminish
4. Much less susceptible to disease
5. Significantly reducing stress

Tip the scales in your favor…and keep it that way! Include massage as part of your self-care plan.

What Are The Benefits Of A Facial?

Aaah, facials! What an excellent way to relax and renew your skin. But facials do far more than provide a temporary lift to your spirits and a glow to your skin. Facials work hard long after the “feel good” is gone.

Relaxing is critical to anti-aging, and of course, facials are known for that. But did you know facials aid in detoxification and reduce the amount of fluid that has built up in your body.

How? Massage.

Facial massage helps with lymphatic drainage. Think of the lymph system as your body’s trash dump. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get emptied very often, but it facials assist with that much needed elimination.

And it shows on your skin. Skin cells are renewed, reducing puffiness and sagging skin. That’s why monthly facials are the foundation of good skincare.

Yes, get chemical peels, microdermabrasions and all the other wonderful anti-aging services we have available, but make facials the anchor to all your treatments!

We get it. Most of life doesn’t come with a guarantee. You pay your money you take your chances.

But we don’t think it should ever be that way, especially when it’s your health! Life is stressful enough. That’s why we want to give the totally stressed out a guarantee.

If you’re sick and tired of your throbbing headache, aching back, tight, sore neck and shoulder muscles, high blood pressure, and insomnia, we’ve got a challenge for you.

Before you pop another pain pill or call your boss a name we can’t mention here, check out the unexpected benefits of massage and our offer.

Massage is clinically proven to help with stress-induced health conditions like the ones we just mentioned, and many others. Massage also significantly reduces the stress hormone, cortisol, which is one of the causes of abdominal fat.

Why does massage work? Well, the answer is more in the HOW. When you’re chronically stressed, muscles tighten and shorten. Blood can’t move easily. Fluid and inflammation build up causing you significant pain.

Massage breaks up lactic acid, which is symptomatic of stress. It also reduces excess fluid and inflammation. And those rubber band shoulders and neck muscles?

They finally get a free pass! Blood can flow easily so you don’t feel like a stiff Ken doll any more.

So here’s the throw down challenge for you. Get a massage package with us. We’ll take notes regarding your symptoms during your initial visit. After you finish your package, we’ll discuss with you the gains you’ve made.

If you don’t agree that your health has significantly improved, and that you can handle stress much better, we’ll give you a free massage.

Why would we do this? Bottom line…massage works!

What have you got to lose besides all that nasty stress?

Does it feel like this?

  • Pins and needles in your lower back or leg, and maybe your foot
  • Shooting streaks of pain or a burning in your leg, buttock, or lower back
  • Numbness in your leg or top of your foot

These are all symptoms of sciatic nerve pain, and it hurts like the devil!

As an expanding uterus puts pressure on the sciatic nerve it causes shooting pain. Typically, sciatic pain makes its appearance during the third trimester of pregnancy.

At the same time, your baby is also starting to shift into proper birth position. The baby can rest directly on your sciatic nerve causing a major pain in the butt, back, and legs.

How can you relieve this painful condition?

As certified pregnancy massage therapists, we know how to address the inflamed nerves so that it releases tension on nearby muscles. The result is a significant reduction in sciatic pain.

With regular pregnancy massage sessions, you can reduce or eliminate this stinging pain. We also recommend you stay off your feet as much as possible, take warm baths, do some pelvic tilts, or go swimming.

Take a holistic approach to your pre-natal care! Under our expert and compassionate hands, we can remedy many of the common discomforts of pregnancy, increasing blood circulation, which in turn delivers more oxygen and nutrients to you and your baby.

We love working with pregnant women so much we took advanced training to help them through this most special time—preparing to give birth!

It’s an awful feeling, isn’t it? Tossing and turning, wishing in vain that sleep would settle over you?

For millions, insomnia is a beast they just can’t tame. Sometimes it’s chronic pain that keeps sleep at bay, and sometimes it’s stress. Both are complex self-perpetuating pain cycles.

• Your thoughts race and you can’t turn them off
• Pain intensifies at night, which causes your body to tense in response

Sleeping pills and pain medication help but they don’t get to the root of the cause, but massage therapy does!

Clinically, it’s all about your Central Nervous system. Think of your CNS as the main computer of your body. Think of chronic pain and/or insomnia as a system wide virus.

Short, tight muscles, so used to being stretched to their breaking point are loosened, allowing blood to flow normally.

Those old restrictive patterns that turn your body into a stress monkey are broken! Signs and symptoms that would normally cause you to wake up or feel great pain no longer bother you.

And that’s the beauty of massage as part of your self-care plan. It sweeps your body, cleaning the emotional and physical debris.

That’s why sleep is easier and pain is significantly reduced or eliminated. With regular massage sessions, the signs and symptoms that would normally cause you to wake up no longer bother you.

Studies from around the world back up our clients’ personal experience with massage. Researchers prove over and over again that massage plays a major role in reducing stress, pain, anxiety, depression, and so many other conditions.

It’s no wonder so many doctors recommend this healing therapy on a regular basis. Their patients often find that they can lessen the use of medications with the help of massage therapy.

What more could you ask for? A therapy that’s deeply relaxing and deeply healing. The only side effect is better health!
