Benefits of Orthopedic & Sports Massage

"Illness is some form of external searching.  Health is inner peace."  ~ Course of Miracles

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Greater energy
  • Improved concentration
  • Increased circulation
  • Reduced fatigue

Benefits of Myoskeletal Massage - Good Postural Habits:

  • Keep bones and joints correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly
  • Decrease the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces
  • Decrease stress on ligaments holding the joints of the spine together
  • Prevent the spine from becoming fixed in abnormal positions
  • Prevent fatigue because muscles are being used more efficiently allowing the body to use less energy
  • Prevent backache and muscular pain
  • AND, contribute to a good appearance.

How Massage can benefit other health issues:

  • Prevent strain patterns before they become pain patterns (Eric Dalton Ph.D.)
  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion
  • Ease medication dependence
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow, the body's natural defense system
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles
  • 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
