Worcester Holistic Wellness Spa

Therapeutic massage

Here at the Body Balancing Center we believe Therapeutic massage helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness. Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of healing, and is a system of various types of touch therapies which manipulate the body to relieve pain, relax and tone the muscles. It works on soft tissues (muscles, tendons, and ligaments), largely affects those muscles just under the skin, and may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves. All of the techniques are used to stimulate blood circulation, assist the circulatory-lymphatic system, repattern musculoskeletal structure, calm the nervous system, and improve the elimination of waste throughout the body. In fact, massage therapy positively influences your overall health and well-being.

Benefits of Massage

Our body’s natural cycle is disturbed by trauma, stress, and unhealthy diets and lifestyles. Massage is more than pampering oneself, it can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.

Because high stress ages us faster internally and externally, massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your wellness program. While living in a stress-free world is unrealistic, studies have shown massage helps decrease anxiety, enhance sleep quality, reduce fatigue, improve concentration, and increase circulation. Massage therapy has also been known to have intangible benefits as well, such as a sense of perspective or a balance of emotions.

Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat post surgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.

As such massage is very beneficial and taking part in regularly scheduled bodywork can play a huge part in how healthy you’ll be and how youthful you’ll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment to your health.
