Benefits of Massage Therapy

General Health

Massage-TherapyMassage therapy can be a very relaxing and therapeutic way to de-stress and address some serious conditions. With the winter months ahead- massage therapy is a definite must when it comes to softening tissues, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues.  Massage therapy offers so many health benefits that shouldn’t be ignored, but instead seen as an important part of maintaining an overall wellness regimen the same way proper nutrition and chiropractic care are.

There are so many health benefits to massage therapy than most people are aware of, some include:

  • Improves circulation
  • Improves breathing
  • Increases range of motion
  • Releases the muscles
  • Improves lymphatic system
  • Relaxes the mind
  • Improves digestion
  • Speeds up healing and formation of scar tissue

Not only does massage therapy offer relaxation for sore muscles and for meditation purposes, but massage therapy also is used for the following conditions:

  • Tendonitis
  • Carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Bursitis
  • Pregnancy
  • Back pain and strains
  • Stress

As a licensed and experienced massage therapist here at Fort HealthCare, I understand the aches and pains that can linger on. Please feel free to make an appointment with myself right here at the hospital or at Fort HealthCare’s Therapy & Sport Center in Fort Atkinson. I have openings that offer flexibility around work schedules and lunch hours.
