Healing Bridges

Therapeutic massage increases blood circulation, reduces blood pressure, improves lymphatic circulation and decreases susceptibility to illness. It promotes calmer breathing, creating a sense of nurturing and elevated emotional self-awareness.

Work pressures, family worries, stressful commutes similarly increase your blood pressure and quicken your breathing. Chronic stress keeps your body in this "fight or flight" reaction, weakening your immune system.

Stress symptoms include inability to sleep, headaches, pain in back, shoulder, or neck areas, trouble thinking clearly, lack of concentration, and memory loss. If you find yourself without energy, catching everything going around, despondent, pessimistic, or unproductive, you might be dealing with chronic tension.

Learning to handle stress produces better health. Therapeutic massage may be the step you need to relieve your stress and safeguard your health.
