Many research studies have shown that the benefits of regular massage are much more far-reaching than previously imagined. Massage Therapy, because it reduces cortisol levels in the body and therefore battles inflammation, is recognized as one of the best ways to mitigate the effects on our bodies of stress, which has been linked to the development and aggravation of many illnesses and chronic conditions, including heart disease, cancer, asthma, diabetes, headaches, depression/anxiety, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, and gastrointestinal problems. Massage also helps treat musculoskeletal problems and injuries of all kinds by providing pain relief and speeding healing, including the healing of bodily tissues damaged during the course of regular exercise, making massage the perfect complement to any exercise program.

Massage Therapy during and after pregnancy can serve as a crucial adjunct to standard pre-natal care. Unlike a physician, a certified massage therapist has the opportunity to spend a full hour (or more) with a pregnant client, during which time multiple issues which arise from the changes of pregnancy can be addressed. These include, but are not limited to, physical stresses often experienced by the pregnant client, including postural/ligamentous changes which can result in new or worsened somatic (bodily) pain. In the post natal period, massage therapy can address additional postural changes and concerns typical for mothers, such as the physical stress that can result from carrying young children and/or from breast or bottle feeding. Massage Therapy during and after pregnancy can also aid in the healing of stretch marks, caesarian scars, and in recovery from stretching of abdominal and pelvic floor tissue which occurs during pregnancy and delivery.
