Massage is very beneficial in maintaining a healthy lifestyle to holistically enhance the wellness of body, mind and spirit. The benefits of massage are especially increased when used regularly and over time. Studies show that when massage is used on a weekly or even monthly basis, it offers a greater and more consistent positive effect upon one's health.
Some of the short and long term benefits of massage include:
- Decreased stress and anxiety.
- Enhanced sleep quality.
- Increased circulation.
- Lymphatic stimulation.
- Improved concentration.
- Greater energy.
- Reduced fatigue.
- Pain management.

Massage therapy can be a potent ally in your holistic healthcare regimen and can be considered a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan. Work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best suits your needs.
