Massage is a touch therapy that is not only a wonderfully pleasurable and relaxing experience, but also brings with it countless health benefits. A massage session can relieve tension in the body, calm the mind, and nourish the soul, bringing healing on a number of levels simultaneously. An extensive body of research supports the therapeutic claims of massage, with growing evidence that it can contribute to the relief of conditions such as stress, depression, and anxiety. It can also assist with self esteem, release emotional blocks, increase mental clarity, and help you connect to your “inner light”. Having a massage can be relaxing and refreshing leaving you feeling connected and balanced. It is about taking time out to restore harmony and well-being so that you feel ready to take on the world again.
On a physiological level, massage affects all the body systems, resulting in improved general functioning, as well as relieving specific conditions throughout the body. Massage causes breathing to deepen and the blood vessels and capillaries to dilate, which boosts circulation and helps oxygenate the blood. Improved circulation also means that vital nutrients are carried around the body more effectively, while temporarily reducing blood pressure and pulse rate.
We have a group of highly trained and experienced massage therapists on our staff that can customize a session for you. Wether you are looking for a Deep Tissue Massage for relieving chronic areas of muscle tension and stress, or a Relaxation Massage to gently unwind and rejuvenate your mind and body, we have just what you need.
