Stress has been shown to aggravate, or even cause, such problems as heart disease, gastrointestinal disorders, memory loss and decreased immune function. Massage Therapy is used to release muscle tension. It improves the circulation of blood through the body and removes metabolic waste products from muscles. Massage Therapy locates and deactivates `trigger points', which are often tender areas where muscles and nerves have been damaged or acquired a re-occurring spasm or `kink' that worsens painfully when aggravated.
Massage Therapy successfully reduces muscular tension as well as nerve damage and associated discomfort. It also increases feelings of well-being, enhances tissue elasticity and flexibility, increases range of motion in joints, relieves muscle aches and stiffness, improves circulation of blood, improves immune system functioning and a large variety of other health conditions.
