Benefits of Massage Therapy
   Massage therapy as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress as well as for conveying compassion and support.  We now have scientific proof of the benefits of massage therapy. These benefits range from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing tensions of our modern lifestyles.  Receiving massage therapy does more than relax your body and mind, there are physiological and even psychological changes that occur even more so when massage therapy is utilized as part of a regular preventative wellness plan rather than a luxury.  Massages not only feel wonderful but they can also help cure what ails you;
