About Massage Treatments
Many of today’s health problems can benefit from massage therapy because the manipulation of soft tissue produces a positive effect on so many of our bodily systems.
The benefits of Massage are extensive. Massage Therapy treatments act upon the musculo-skeletal system, the nervous system, the circulatory system and the immune system and this is how it can have such a therapeutic effect that leads to improved health.
The intent of our Massage treatments is to maintain, develop, rehabilitate or augment your physical function.
Our Massage Therapy techniques have become a staple of many athletes as an integral part of their training regimens.
Of course, Massage is not only for athletes, but it will also benefit those working long hours, those doing physically taxing tasks, pre and post natal moms, etc., etc.
✓ Massage therapy is also effective in the control of pain, chronic or acute, in stress reduction, and in creating a sense of relaxation and well- being. Shin’s licensed, skilled practitioners can become an important and integral part of your health care team.
✓ Relax tight and tense muscles – Many people don’t realize how much a tight muscle impacts on vital things such as posture. A tense muscle can throw off your body’s balance. Before long, muscles that were not initially tight begin to tense as they compensate for other parts of the body. It becomes a chain reaction that can spread far from the initial problem spot. Our highly skilled massage therapists can identify the source of the problem and start working to alleviate the problem where it started.
✓ Improve circulation, recovery time and immune system function – The movements of massage cause blood to flush in and out of muscles and joints. This flushing process – enhancing circulation in the affected areas – can, in some cases, aid recovery time from injuries.
✓ Relieve or prevent physical dysfunction and pain – Some massage therapy techniques are specifically recommended for sore muscle tissues. An overly sore muscle cannot function properly. By alleviating or preventing pain, dysfunction can be combated.
✓ Reduce overall stress – We’re all becoming more aware of the role stress plays in health. People who are stressed, all other things being equal, are less healthy than people who are relaxed. Stress, for example, increases the risk of heart disease. Massage therapy is an effective and enjoyable way to reduce stress.
Massage Treatment Goal
Another important benefit of Massage Therapy is for early intervention in even a minor injury.
Treating and correcting the minor injury will then prevent the progression to a chronic injury, which can lead to inactivity, not being able to fully participate in life or even making a living.
Massage is not a luxury item but rather an important part of maintaining one’s health.
