Beyond pain relief, massage is valuable for preventive care

The Summer 2013 edition of Body Sense Magazine has some great things to say about Massage Therapy as preventative maintenance:
“Massage Therapy is highly effective for pain relief, but it is an amazing preventive therapy as well. Massage helps build and maintain a healthy body (and mind), it combats stress, and it works to keep the immune system strong. In short, massage can keep on working for you, even after the pain is gone.”

Massage as Preventive Care – The Benefits
• Improves range of motion
• Enhances immunity by stimulating lymph flow – the body’s natural defense system.
• Exercises and stretches weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
• Helps athletes of any level prepare for strenuous workouts.
• Increases joint flexibility.
• Lowers blood pressure.
