Have you ever been so cold that some or all of your fingers are numb? And at some point you realize that you have been tightening your shoulders and neck (sort of "drawing in" like a turtle) trying to protect yourself from the cold...you then consciously relax your tightened muscles and your fingers come back to life! Or, have you ever been in a stressful situation such as a huge report to do for work or school, your child gets injured, a wedding or another huge event that you are responsible for (you get the idea!) and the day after you are "wiped out", exhausted, achy? Usually after a day or two you will feel better. These examples are simple illustrations of the effects of stress on your body. If your body is subjected to stress frequently with infrequent periods of relaxation, your body will begin to have chronic issues such as high blood pressure, stomach issues, severe headaches, trouble sleeping, etc. Massage helps with the relaxation of your body and prevention of some health issues. While you feel like you are being "pampered", you are truly helping your body stay well and function as God intended the parts and pieces to work together.

Be well...be happy!
There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
