We all know that ‘prevention is better than cure’. Some people only think of remedial massage when they have strong aches and pains that they need to get rid of. Studies have proven that there are many additional benefits to be gained from regular massage. Massage of all types has been shown to :
 
• Lower blood pressure
• Improve sleep patterns
• Decrease muscle tension
• Reduce chronic pain, including sciatica, headaches, neck and back pain
• Reduce stiffness and improve flexibility
• Help in dealing with physical and emotional stress
• Increase blood flow and oxygenation of body tissues
• Stimulate the immune system
• Help clear toxins and waste products from the body
 
All this adds up to improved health and function, not just for your muscles, but for all parts of your body, including vital organs like your heart, lungs and brain. You have experienced the feeling of wellbeing after a massage. Why shouldn’t you feel like that all the time? In today’s world of constant pace and pressure, processed food and pollution, the incidence of chronic diseases and conditions is rising dramatically. To live a long and healthy life, your body needs all the help you can give it. Don’t wait for something to start hurting. Make a deliberate choice to improve your life today. Eat well, get your sleep, exercise and make massage a regular part of your healthy life.
