"Massage Therapy plays an instrumental role in your health and in the healing process after an injury. In an age of technical and, at times, impersonal medicine, massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on the body's natural ability to heal itself. So what exactly are the benefits to receiving regular massage treatments?
Massage Therapy increases circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs. Massage stimulates the flow of lymph, the body"s natural defense system, against toxic invaders.
Massage relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles, reduces spasms, cramping and increases joint flexibility. Massage reduces recovery time, helping the body to prepare for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent pains of the athlete at any level.
Massage releases endorphins, reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema, improves range of motion and decreases pain. After an injury, chiropractic treatment combined with massage therapy work to get the inflammation surrounding the area under control."
