Benefits Of Massage

Stress management is a very important factor in our fast-paced society.  Many experts agree that massage may greatly benefit our over-stressed population. Massage affects the autonomic nervous system which controls whether you have a “fight or flight” (sympathetic) response or a “rest and digest” (parasympathetic) response to stimuli.  As we travel through our day, we spend most of our time in “fight or flight” mode which we interpret as feeling stress.  The great thing about massage is that it helps us relax into the “rest and digest” mode. 

If you have better control over your stress, you can enjoy:

*Decreased levels of anxiety
