Benefits of Massage

Posted on

There is evidence that massage can improve breathing among asthmatic children, lower levels of stress hormones and help relieve tension headaches caused by contracting head, neck or facial muscles. Part of the reason massage may work as well as it does for so many problems is that people expect it to. This is yet another example of the powerful connection between the mind and body – treatment that succeeds in part because patients believe in it. For many of us, massage can simply be wonderfully relaxing, but to gain its full benefit, you need to surrender your body, and have faith in the touch of a skilled therapist.
