Massage Therapy as a Complement to Medical Treatment
From arthritis to asthma, the benefits of massage are far-reaching. Although not a replacement for conventional medical care, massage can provide relief for many specific conditions and ultimately promotes an overall sense of well-being which greatly accelerates healing from both physical and psychological ailments. Studies have shown the positive effects of massage as a complementary therapy. Clients report improved sleep, increased relaxation and relief from pain, fatigue and nausea when massage therapy was combined with conventional medical treatments.
Other benefits of massage therapy include:
- Boosting of the immune system
- Decreased blood pressure
- Improved circulation (faster healing from injuries and improved and healthier skin)

- Significant relief for many pre-natal and post-natal physical discomforts and stress related issues
