With today's high costs of health care, people are looking for ways to stay healthier on a daily level. From meeting the basic need of human touch to supporting healthy circulation and managing tension headaches and low back pain, massage therapy is increasingly acknowledged as an important piece of maintaining general health and preventing injuries.
Adolescent growth spurts, intense physical training and pregnancy are hard on the body. Massage can help the body to adapt and deal with the tensions and some of the risks associated with these drastic changes.
For those with active lifestyles, massage can be just the thing to keep you moving. Specialized techniques can improve joint mobility as well as treat the early stages of injury. Tendonitis, thoracic outlet syndrome, shin splints, muscle strains, and frozen shoulder are just a few of the issues that can benefit from massage.
