You can see why it’s become so popular and often considered an essential way of managing our health and wellbeing. The immediate effect is often felt in the ability to physically move more freely and a lightness felt in the body. It’s also quite relaxing and we love hearing how our clients feel amazing as they surface from their massage room, usually feeling like they are floating their way out the door. (Or wanting another room to take a nap in afterwards!)

Massage is not only about feel amazing afterwards

Research shows that there are benefits for a variety of medical conditions, as well as for children to older adults. We treat people who have short term injury, to others with more complex or chronic conditions. There are physical and emotional benefits to massage that are enhanced through regular treatments. Many of our clients find this then helps them to better manage not only their health and sense of wellbeing, but cope with their day to day activities, work demands, stress, illness, and family life. Getting a massage in Orange with our team can be relaxing and a great way to take some time out for yourself. The positives of having a massage are just amazing!

Some of the most common ways massage can help include:

  • Relieving pain
  • Reducing stress
  • Getting rid of headache
  • Treating issues such as plantar fasciitis, sciatica and lower back pain 

How massage works on a physical and emotional level:

  • By releasing muscle tension and improving joint mobility addresses postural or injury issues in the body, bringing with it a sense of general wellbeing. There is a change in hormones that calm and relax the mind and body, through the release of the feel-good hormones (such as endorphins and enkephalins), while reducing the stress-inducing ones (such as epinephrine, cortisol, etc.)
  • Both physical and emotional stress is reduced through focused relaxation and changes in heart rate, breathing and muscle tension (the reduction of headaches is another common outcome)
  • Circulation is improved and inflammation reduced (which is important in managing chronic conditions and healing injury)
  • A reduction in pain is possible from the activation of pain receptors in the spinal cord and muscles
  • The mechanism of massage helps the body to boost immunity, improve lymphatic drainage and eliminate toxins from the body while oxygenating cells
  • It is a treatment that contributes to the management of many health issues including anxiety, digestive disorders, insomnia, headache, TMJ and musculoskeletal disorders.
