A Powerful AllyThere's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of how we view massage (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful tool in your healthcare regimen. Experts estimate that upwards of 90% of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
