Do You NEED a Massage?
EveryBODY needs a massage, but some people don’t realize it until after they have received one. There are different reasons for massage. Most people want to relax and relieve stress, while others have added stress that requires attention.
Some people are very active and have aches and pains connected to these activities. When there are mobility issues the muscles will tighten and restrict the range of motion a person can have. Without addressing the problem the range of motion becomes increasingly less over time.
Many people seek massage for therapeutic benefits. Massage can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental/physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety, and create an overall sense of well-being.
