The Science Behind Massage


“Massage is an ancient healing art and has been viewed as an important part of virtually every system of medicine developed.”

From its early Asian roots to Hippocrates’ writings, massage was referred to as a tool for promotion of well- being and for treating various conditions. Health experts estimate that between 60 and 90% of all disease is stress related. Stress is a main contributor to rapid aging. The prestigious Mayo Clinic published an article titled “Massage: Get in Touch With Its Many Health Benefits”. Stress relief, managing anxiety and depression, pain, stiffness, blood pressure control, sports related injuries, boosting immunity, cancer treatment and infant growth were among the many benefits cited. These are the primary reasons that American adults make more than 100 million visits to massage therapists annually.

Besides pervasive mental stress, repetitive postural stress is also epidemic with huge numbers of people tied to desks, sitting for toxic periods of time, slumping over computers causing a myriad of physical problems.

“Hands down”, Massage therapy is one of the best things you can do for your health. Although there are many different types of massage the common denominator involves relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow and oxygen to tissues. Less quantifiable, but potentially as valuable are the energetic changes that occur with human touch and intention.

This healing art, while ancient in roots, continues to be one of the most effective, safe and natural ways to treat mental and physical ailments.
