Swedish Massage Therapy
Swedish massage has been clinically proven to reduce blood pressure, regulate hormones and release endorphins. So if you are ready to de-stress, relax your muscles and release stored tension, this style of massage is what you are looking for. Hot towels, a heated table and essential oils are available to enhance your experience.
When left untreated, stress from daily life can start to take its toll on your mind and body. In fact, stress is the root cause of many diseases because it can over load the body’s immune system. A relaxing massage has been proven to reduce the stress hormone cortisol and raise white blood cell levels. The more often you receive a Swedish massage, the better your results will be.
Massage increases blood flow to sore muscles and joints. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine has reported that massage triggers the release of natural opioid compounds such as endorphins in the brain and as a result reduces pain. Massage also releases oxytocin in the body, a hormone that relaxes muscles, relieves stress and acts as an anti-inflammatory.
