Relieve back pain
When afflicted with back pain, even the simplest tasks become huge challenges. Regular massage improves blood flow to oxygen-starved back muscles and prompts the body to release endorphins - the
body's natural painkiller. The results are faster recovery and improved range of motion.
Relieve muscle tension and stiffness
Regular massage stimulates tight muscles, joints and ligaments empowering the body to heal and improving range of motion.
Reduce muscle spasms
Spasms and cramps can be painful, unexpected and frustrating. By gently and gradually stretching and manipulating muscles, regular massage may ease pain and hasten recovery.
Relieve tension-related headaches and effects of eyestrain
Every muscle and nerve in the body is interconnected in some way. When you have a sore back or tight neck, or when you're constantly
straining your eyes, the ripple effect can travel throughout the body. Regular massage manipulates and increases blood flow to the back, neck, and all muscles of the body so it can return to a natural state of wellness.
