Benefits of Regular Massage

Regular massage benefits many common health concerns.

Massage benefits are cumulative. Just like eating one healthy meal a month does not make us healthy, getting a massage once a year creates only marginal improvement in our well-being and stress relief. 

It's best to maintain a regular schedule of massage.

We recommend receiving one massage once a month as maintenance if you don't have any chronic tension or muscle pain. When dealing with an injury, or breaking up chronic tension, it's best to receive 4-5 massages over a course of several weeks until the problem gets resolved.

Anxiety and Depression

Muscle Tension

Sudden Muscle Spasms (neck, calf, lower back)

Stress Relief
