What are the benefit of scheduling a regular massage to maintain your health? Massage calms the nervous system and relaxes the body, which helps still the emotions and the mind. This is especially true when pain, a source of stress, is reduced or eliminated. Reducing stress allows the body to rest, recover and heal.

Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions. The most prevalent being stress related tension, which, experts believe, accounts for 80%-90% of disease.
