Benefits of Massage

On a day-to-day basis, you come into contact with many stressors. Often, you may not think they affect your body and mind. But even simple posture changes, the office chair at work that doesn’t have good back support, or the bag you carry on your shoulder every day could be the culprit. And we ALL internalize daily stress from work and home.

Regardless of the original cause, massage can help alleviate the negative effects of stressors. Studies have shown that massage is helpful for an array of issues including:

  • Anxiety
  • Reducing stress
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain and tension
