Massage is considered to be the oldest of all treatments used by man. Chinese records dating back 3,000 years documented its use. Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.
Today, massage is an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs
and has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions such as:
- Back and neck pain
- Muscle tension and tightness
Massage also helps:
- Reduce spasms and cramping
- Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles
- Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller
- Relieve migraine pain
- Improve range of motion
- Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays
- Ease medication dependence
- Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system
- Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscle
- Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts
- Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin
- Increase joint flexibility
- Lessen depression and anxiety
- Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks
- Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation
- Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling
