Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is proven to be an effective method of preventing and treating diseases and injuries as it helps to enhance the functioning of all body systems. Whether through improving posture, muscle tone, and joint mobility of the musculoskeletal system or encouraging blood and lymph flow in turn increasing the efficiency of the circulatory and immune systems, massage therapy mechanically affects the body in a positive way. Our respiratory systems benefit from improved breathing patterns and our digestive systems experience better uptake of nutrients from food allowing a better flow of oxygen and other essential substances to all body tissues. Furthermore, our nervous systems benefit from improved sensory stimulation as well as coordination skills and our hormonal systems increase production of endorphins and oxytocin that promote healing and a sense of wellbeing.
