10 Therapeutic Massage Benefits
1. Increased circulation.
Massage helps the body pump more oxygen & nutrients. This feeds your tissues and organs and helps them be healthier. It also triggers lymph flow. This is your body’s natural self-cleaning system. Together, they improve the condition of your largest organ… your skin.
2. Activates the body’s self-healing
Your immune system is your body’s defense system. It’s tied to your lymph system. When activated, it promotes self-healing.
3. Relaxes and softens hurt or overused muscles.
When a tight or overused muscle can be relaxed, it helps to heal. It reduces pain. Flexibility and range-of-motion improve. You’ll move more freely, stand taller and enjoy life more.
4. Reduces spasms and cramps.
Reducing pain reduces recovery time. You heal faster and get back to enjoying life sooner. It can also help athletes prepare for strenuous workouts.
5. Releases natural painkillers.
Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers. They control and relieve pain. This reduces the need for medications. Activating them helps chronic illness or injuries. It can also speed recovery from medical or cosmetic surgery.
6. Reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema.
Adhesions are fibrous scar tissue. Following surgery, they can start to form. This restricts movement and makes it painful. Correct techniques reduce and relax scar tissue. Reduced pain means you can move more freely.
Edema is swelling. It can also follow surgery. It’s caused when the lymph system isn’t working properly and fluids back up in an area. Gentle lymphatic techniques drain these fluids. Swelling is immediately reduced.
7. Reduces joint pain.
This work increases joint flexibility. It can prepare you for strenuous workouts and improve range of motion. Techniques of the Berry Method can correct the balance of the joint. The joint is stabilized. Discomfort relieved and the need for surgeries delayed or eliminated.
8. Decreases lower back pain.
Work with muscles, tendons and body balancing reduces lower back pain. You’ll move more comfortably and freely.
9. Relieves migraine pain.
Migraines are painful and debilitating. Special sacral cranial techniques can relieve migraine pain. This reduces the need for medications with their own side-effects.
10. Provides exercise and stretching for weak muscles.
When a person becomes debilitated muscles can become weak. They reduce in size and waste away. Range-of-motion becomes restricted. Proper techniques help reverse this condition.
