Ease discomfort and pain, while increasing energy and promoting relaxation
With Mario Castillo, LMT
What is Therapeutic Massage?
Therapeutic massage incorporates a variety of advanced modalities that enhance the body’s natural restorative functioning for reducing pain, muscle soreness and stress; while increasing energy and promoting relaxation. Light to firm touch is used to release tension, relax muscles, increase blood and lymph circulation, and impart a sense of calm.
Therapeutic massage can be used as a collaborative, supportive addition to conventional medical treatment of illness and injury, alleviating pain and stress, aiding soft tissue healing, and revitalizing the body. Also, regular massage can enhance health, providing relaxation, release of muscle tightness, relief from anxiety and tensions, and balancing aspects of body/mind/spirit.
Benefits of Massage
One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins; the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Therapeutic Massage Does So Much More Than Just Treat Pain!
