Massage provides relief to people from all walks of life — the weekend or competitive athlete, the home gardener, and the overstressed executive struggling to keep pace in today’s economy. Administrative assistants, laborers, waitresses — anyone can feel a need for massage at some point in time. The older population, as well, will benefit from massage, as it enhances flexibility and circulation.
With many chronic ailments, massage can relieve the pain and help heal. As with physical problems, emotional problems may also be stimulated into self-healing with massage. In many cases, this helps eliminate the need to take harmful chemical drugs, which can unnecessarily burden the liver, kidneys, and other vital organs.
There are some conditions where massage is not recommended, however. We will ask for information regarding any specific health conditions from which you may be suffering in order to determine if massage or other bodywork therapies are contraindicated. In some cases, we may need your doctor’s permission before providing services.
Taking Care of Yourself
Care of your body should be at the top of your priority list. You will feel and look better if you take the necessary steps regarding health and nutrition in this age of increased longevity. Stress relief alone can improve your vitality and state of mind. Massage or other bodywork therapies could play an important role in your life.
