A better quality of life, has a different meaning depending largely upon your current condition. To some that would mean being able to get out of bed, or to perform any simple task, that most of us take for granted. While to others it means optimizing performance or even pampering.
Massage therapy, in various ways, has been used for hundreds of years, within different cultures, across the globe. There have been techniques that have come to us from places like China, India, Tibet, Thailand and Hawaii. Regardless of your condition, massage enhances your ability to function, by assisting in restoring your body’s ability to heal itself and by allowing blockages to open up and flow freely. These blockages can be found in all areas or systems of your body. Once free and open, the body can move easier and rest better. Your immune system will function better, making it easier to fight off disease and release stress.
Massage has been known to help with cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, myasthenia gravis (most all auto immune diseases), high cholesterol, to mention a few, and reduces symptoms associated with them, and the medications people must take who have serious illnesses.
One of the best things about massage is that it is a great way to pamper yourself and to remind yourself how valuable you really are.
