Massage emphasizes balanced movement and touch therapy.
The health benefits of massage have been recognized by many cultures for hundreds of years. It is commonly used to resolve chronic tension patterns, rehabilitate sports injuries such as strains and sprains, and decrease feelings of anxiety. Massage works by lowering the body’s stress mechanisms, including cortisol levels and blood pressure. Physical muscle manipulation has been shown to increase blood flow and lymph circulation, and also to decrease the tension in muscles.
