The Power of Bodywork is profound. We often call massage pampering, rejuvenating, and therapeutic; it can be even more powerful than that. It can be part of your preventative health plan. The work itself can be an important ally in improving our health and quality of life.
Receiving massage can be crucial for stress relief, and pain management. It is therefore vital that we begin to condition our attitude and incorporate it regularly into a wellness plan and routine. Eliminating anxiety and pressure is difficult in this fast paced world. Massage can help us cope and manage that stress with ease.
Massage is useful for For Pain and Stress Management. Some people may need to receive one or even two treatments a week for several months to get through a trauma, injury or difficulty. The good news is, it feels good and is good for you. For maintenance massage, it is common to come once every 2-4 weeks. Part of the beauty of bodywork is that it is good for many systems in the body including your musculoskeletal, endocrine, nervous, and lymphatic. You can recover from stress of injury, trauma and hardship much faster than just taking drugs. Unlike many western drugs, massage is good for the liver and helps eliminate inflammation from the body in a efficient manner.
