Benefits of Massage

Benefits of massage as listed by the "Experts" can be found below.  Feedback on the benefits of bodywork/massage as experienced by clients at Time To Relax:


"Excellent!  Addressed the problem that I was having on my left side.  I didn't want a massage, I wanted to work on knotted up muscles and got the job done.  Felt better than I've felt in a couple of months.  Going back again"  Vince

"I met with Chris to experience her specialized techniques in Myofasical Release.  Chris did a great job of reading the body and providing a more permanent solution with MFR than traditional massage would do.  I am excited to send more clients her way as now I know she is unique and affective in her style"  Jolene, PT


Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.

Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.
