Benefits of Massage Therapy

Oxygen-rich blood flows into cells with each gentle, kneading stroke. Skin is nourished with organic oils rich in Vitamin E. The latest research shows this centuries-old practice of healing touch will:

  • Eliminate toxins in muscles and increase cellular oxygen levels.
  • Improve posture and aid in mineral absorption for stronger bones.
  • Stimulate the relaxation response within the nervous system.
  • Strengthen the immune system and increase lymph flow.
  • Lower blood pressure and regulate breathing.
