There was a time when massage was considered a luxury item, but now it is affordable and often, even a necessity.
Of all types of therapies available for stress, pain relief, relaxation and wellness, massage consistently ranks as one of the top ten treatments. People use massage for the following health related reasons:
• To relieve pain
• Rehabilitate sports injuries
• Reduce stress
• Increase relaxation
• Address anxiety and depression
• Aid general well-being
• Reduce the stress hormone, cortisol, which is believed to cause excess fat storage in the body.
Recent research indicates that massage may produce measurable changes in the body’s endocrine and immune system, by significantly changing and improving lymphocytes, one of the type of white blood cells that play a large role in defending the body from disease.
Therapeutic massage covers a variety of types of massage therapy associated with the treatment of injury, postural imbalances, repetitive use issues, tendonitis, and all types of pain from chronic headaches to lower back pain, and tight shoulders. Often the therapist encompasses a variety of techniques based on the situation that created the issue in the first place. At Massage Rose, we offer several modalities for our client’s lifestyles. Each one requires specific training, and we are proud that our therapists have obtained the the top credentials in the massage industry.
