More likely than not, you will find that at least one of the below amazing benefits may convince you to go sign up for your monthly massage right now…


  • Increases quality of sleep and reduces depression and anxiety by increasing the body’s production of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, as well as increasing the ability to reach delta brain waves that are associated with deep sleep.
  • Effectively treats inflammatory and autoimmune conditions by boosting the immune system; massage decreases stress hormones and increases disease-fighting white blood cell production.
  • Can lower blood pressure and improve digestion and abdominal organ function by reducing the body’s production of the stress hormone cortisol by up to 50%.
  • Counteracts the imbalance caused from sitting for prolonged periods of time which tends to manifest as pain in the shoulders, neck, and low back.
  • Relieves muscle pain by increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, moving toxins out of the tissue, increasing muscle balance, and helping muscles to return to a relaxed state.
  • Prevents and treats sports related injuries by increasing flexibility and muscle coordination, hydrating the muscle tissue, and speeding muscle recovery.
  • Eases symptoms of osteoarthritis by increasing range of motion and decreasing stiffness and pain.
  • Decreases the severity and frequency of migraines and tension headaches by increasing circulation and releasing tension in the neck and shoulder muscles that often refer pain to the back, sides, and front of the head.
  • Eases and compliments intensive medical treatment such as radiation for cancer by naturally lifting mood and relieving fatigue, anxiety, pain, and nausea.
  • Reduces abdominal discomforts associated with traveling, altitude adjustment, change of diet, and digestive diseases with abdominal massage by reducing inflammation, gently breaking up scar tissue, bringing organs back into natural position, and increasing circulation to aid in organ function and the healing process.
