Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Massage holistically treats the whole body and is extremely beneficial, with regular treatments, you may enjoy relief from pain and an increased sense of overall well-being and the awareness of what it feels like to be truly relaxed.
When you receive your massage, relaxation begins to permeate your body. Your mind becomes more peaceful and your anxieties don't hammer at you like they did when the massage began. As you relax, you may even notice that your headache or low-back pain recede. Like many of us, you may have experienced those times when a single massage provided amazing, short-term relief from pain or stress. But as you returned to your normal activities, the chronic pain and tension came creeping back over time, contributing to headaches or flare-ups of fibromyalgia, TMJ or old injuries.
Regular massage tends to increase the benefits you'll receive. Your chronic discomforts and conditions can actually improve long term with a series of massage sessions. With regular massage, you may also notice that you don’t feel the effects of excess stress as much or that, due to increased body awareness, you use your body in ways that cause less strain. You may observe that your old pain patterns aren’t kicking in to the degree that they used to. Gradually, you may enjoy an increased sense of overall well-being and the awareness of what it feels like to be truly relaxed.
How often should you come in?
The frequency of sessions varies from person to person. Depending on the intensity of the pain or stress you experience, you may want to come in as frequently as once a week or as little as once a month, to prevent the build-up of strain.
