BenefitsIn addition to the feeling of serenity that receiving massage promotes in the moment, there are also lasting benefits. Massage, along with other healing modalities (chiropractic, acupuncture) and self care( stretching, yoga) are essential for injury prevention. Regardless of our activity level, we all have patterns in which we move our bodies in ways that cause repetitive stress. Sometimes these patterns happen so subtly, that they occur even while sleeping. With massage and bodywork these patterns can be corrected with gentle ease and awareness.
