Benefits of massage therapy

Getting a massage can provide you with a host of benefits:

  • increases joint mobility and range of motion
  • acute and chronic pain modulation
  • aids in healing processes in acute and chronic injuries
  • decrease in scar tissue and adhesions due to postural faults, surgeries etc.
  • postural awareness
  • decreases general muscle resting tension
  • relaxation/reduces sympathetic firing
  • promotes general functionality
