Benefits of Massage

Massage practices can be found in almost every culture, and the benefits of receiving a massage go far beyond the satisfaction of taking some much needed time out for pampering yourself.

All forms of massage increase circulation and promote blood flow, nourishment and waste removal from the tissues.  This means that cellular functions are allowed to thrive.  It has become common knowledge that massage is helpful in reducing stress, and can melt away tension that has been held for weeks, months or even years.  The stress reducing quality of massage occurs because massage actually lowers heart rate and cortisone levels in the blood.  In addition massage helps to increase range of motion, flexibility and also improves posture.  Your massage therapist has extensively trained to use the most effective strokes and contact with tightened and constrained muscles.  In this way, chronically inhibited muscles and areas of holding are opened and molded back into healthy action.

SWA’s therapists offer an array of massage modalities to choose from, weather you are a fan of aromatherapy, Swedish or like to delve into the muscle core with deep tissue.  Regardless of which styles of massage you prefer, getting regular massages is always an enjoyable part of keeping yourself healthy.  We also offer aroma therapy, Reki, and/or reflexology add-ons to our Swedish and deep tissue massages.
