Massage Therapy Services at the Martinvale Clinic.
Massage therapy is now considered a vital part of the healthcare practices of many people living in today’s stress-heavy world. Prolonged periods of stress can negatively affect many systems of the body.
Stress has been shown to aggravate, or even cause, such problems as heart disease, gastrointestinal disorders, memory loss, and decreased immune function. But it doesn’t just contribute to physical ailments. Stress can sap joy from your life, cause seemingly inexplicable fatigue, and leave you less able to enjoy your relationships and leisure activities.
Massage therapy is one of the best antidotes for stress. If even the untrained hands of a friend or partner can soothe aches and pains, and diminish anxiety, then imagine the effect of a therapeutic massage by a trained practitioner.
Research indicates that massage therapy can:
- Boost the immune system
- Significantly lower blood pressure
- Comfort those going through drug or alcohol withdrawal
- Sooth chronic joint and muscle pain
- Battle fatigue
- Ease stress
- Combat depression
