The Health Benefits of Massage

Massage therapy can play in important role in your healthcare regimen. The benefits of massage extend far beyond simply relaxation.

The power of bodywork can be described as balancing your physical, mental and emotional state. Although it is outside the accepted scope of practice for a massage therapist to diagnose or suggest the existence of a specific health condition, it is profoundly beneficial for a multitude of ailments.

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 and/or bodywork treatments?

Here are just a few of the health problems that may aid you towards homeostasis, even more so when massage is performed on a regular basis.
