Benefits of Massage

One common misconception people have is that massage is just a luxury for the wealthy. In truth, massage can be beneficial, or even necessary, for many people to treat and/or prevent a variety of health problems such as stress, chronic pain, headaches, and more. Here are some of the most important benefits of massage:

Stress Reduction
Symptoms of stress can include anxiety, headaches, sleep disorders, loss of productivity, inability to concentrate, change in blood sugar, nervousness, irritability, increased blood pressure, chronic muscle spasms and chronic fatigue. Heart and Hands offers professional massage therapy to reduce or eliminate these symptoms.

Revitalize and Energize
Massage opens up blood vessels, improves circulation, and relieves congestion. Plus, it feels wonderful!

Massage acts as a "mechanical cleanse", pushing along lymphatic fluids and hastening the elimination of waste and toxic debris. It also aids in improving digestion.

Pain Relief
Massage assists in the healing of injured muscles, tendons and tissues. It also provides relief from headaches and releases blockages.

Massage improves muscle tone and can help prevent or delay muscular atrophy resulting from forced inactivity.
