Why Massage?

Nov 10, 2010

Elements therapeutic massage, Issaquah, subscribes to the point of view that regular, on-going massage is not an indulgence.  It is a sensible, non-invasive and affordable way to improve physical, emotional and mental health. 

Research shows that massage rejuvinates and heals our bodies and minds.  It can help :

Bolster the immune system : Some studies show that massge stimulates an increase in the number of cells in the body that help protect us against illness and disease.

Relieve pain : Massage stimulates the release of endorphines, the body's natural painkillers, to alleviate the soreness, aches and pains associated with everything from arthritis to general joint and muscle pain.

Improve circulation : The rubbing and kneading actions of massage can increase blood flow throughout the body, and can reduce one's heart rate, lower blood pressure and relax muscles.

Rehabilitation : Massage can reduce swelling, relieve muscle aches and stiffness, and improve range of motion.

Reduce stress : Not only does massage feel good but it also relaxes your body and mind, fostering reduced anxiety and a general sense of well-being.
