Are you ready to add Massage Therapy into your Wellness Routine?
I watched a great movie the other night, Ford v. Ferrari. It’s about the Ford Motor Company’s endeavor
to build a car that could beat Ferrari in the Le Mans Race. It got me to thinking about how our body is a
fine-tuned machine. We are constantly having to make tweaks and adjustments in order to get the best
performance for our own personal needs and life goals.
Maintaining the health of our bodies requires dedicated time and energy to ourselves and to our
wellbeing. Vroom, Vroom…here comes Massage Therapy. One of the most positive benefits is to our
Heart, which is our life force. Research has shown that regular massage therapy helps lower blood
pressure and heart rate, reducing the strain on your heart and helping you maintain a healthier
And there’s more…
Do you want to run a Marathon or participate in a triathlon and push your body to peak
Massage can help you do more of what you love by helping increasing range of motion
and flexibility, reducing inflammation, reducing pain, relaxing the body, and preventing
injury. With all of these added benefits you can expect your performance to be
enhanced as well.
Are you running ragged with balancing kids, work and taking care of others? Do you have some
nagging aches and pains, feeling overwhelmed or stressed?
Stress affects more than just your mind. Research has found that stress affects every
part of your body – when you carry too much tension, it seems natural that it can lead
to muscle stiffness and pain. But what you might not realize is that, according to the
Mayo clinic, it’s also linked to headaches, fatigue, stomach problems, and difficulty
sleeping. When you enjoy a relaxing massage session at our wellness center, you’ll be
doing your body a favor.
Do you have chronic pain, mobility or balance issues? Are you recovering from an injury?
Preliminary research has shown that massage therapy can even help patients manage
the pain and stress of chronic health issues, including joint pain, sports injuries, soft
tissue injuries, digestive disorders, and even hard-to-manage conditions like fibromyalgia.
When combined with a treatment program from our physical therapist, it can do wonders!
There are many tools you can use for self-care and we want to encourage you to include Massage
Therapy as one of the ways to enhance your vitality, promote relaxation, and relieve pain.
Massage Therapy is good for working professionals in the ‘Sandwich Generation’, elite athletes, seniors,
and anyone looking for a way to feel better, even if its just for one hour.
We help busy professionals whose activities are limited by pain, get back to enjoying the things they love, even if other treatments have let them down.
