Besides relaxation and stress relief, there are many massage benefits that one may not be aware of:

Pain Relief:
Besides helping to bring fresh blood flow and relaxing muscles around sources of pain, massage stimulates endorphins— the body's natural painkiller.

Immunity:
Lymph is a component of the immune system that carries unwanted materials from body tissue. Massage helps to stimulate lymph flow boosting immunity.

Mobility:
Deep tissue massage can get to the core of muscles where tiny adhesions and scar tissue may have formed due to habitual, postural, or environmental issues. Getting to the core of the muscles can break up these adhesions resulting in improved body function and range of motion. Stretching and range of motion techniques can help one repattern or bring awareness to constrained body movement increasing mobility.

 

Circulation:
Massage helps blood ciruculation, reoxygenating muscles, draining lymph and lactic acid. This helps to return muscles to their optimal state. Massage has also been shown to lower blood pressure.

Sleep and Stress:
Relaxed muscles and relief from stress can aid in better quality sleep. Massage brings the body into parasympathetic mode so that your body can carry out its natural autonomous functions such as digestion and detoxification so that healing and regeneration can occur. One's body also goes into parasympathetic mode during sleep.

Chronic Tension:
Deep tissue massage can get to the core of muscles where tiny adhesions and scar tissue may have formed due to habitual, postural, or environmental issues. Getting to the core of the muscles can break up these adhesions resulting in improved body function and freedom of mobility.
