Therapeutic Massage Therapy
Massage for 8 Weeks to Wellness®
Once considered to be pampering for the rich and famous, massage therapy is now finding enormous popularity among millions in the U.S. Massage can provide relief to people from all walks of life. Living a sedentary lifestyle can lead your muscles to pay the price for your inactivity.
Massage is not a luxury
Like a sponge that is squeezed, a tight muscle cannot hold much fluid to pass through it. This decreases your circulation and increases the strain placed on your heart. This can leave you feeling fatigued and sore. Massage therapy releases contracted muscles and pushes venous blood toward the heart, easing the strain on this vital organ. It reduces waste products such as lactic acid, which builds up in overworked muscles. It also loosens tight muscles, preventing formation of adhesions that restrict your range of motion and cause arthritis to set in.
Too many of us deal with chronic pain due to chronic conditions and injuries. Massage helps to stimulate the release of endorphins, which is the body’s natural pain-killer, into the nervous system to decrease pain and discomfort without using unnatural and risky drugs. It stimulates your body’s natural pharmacy, which is dosage specific, target specific and FREE! Our 8WW® program includes one 60-minute massage each week.
