Special K – More Than Pampering

There are few, if any, who have not experienced stress…for most, it is a daily occurrence. Experts estimate that up to 90% of disease is stress related or that stress contributes to the presence of disease. While most view massage therapy as an indulgent, infrequent activity, studies have shown that it can be a powerful asset in any healthcare regime.

During a massage, specific physiological and chemical changes, combine throughout the body with profound effects. Studies related to the benefits of massage therapy reveal that it can lower blood pressure, reduce pain and boost the immune system. Following are a few additional benefits research has uncovered:

  • Arthritis sufferers note less stiffness and pain
  • Asthmatic children show greater pulmonary function & increased air flow
  • Burn patients report reduced pain, itching and anxiety
  • High blood pressure patients display lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety and stress hormones
  • Stimulates lymph flow (the body’s natural defense system) which enhances the body’s immunity
  • Promotes tissue regeneration reducing scar tissue
  • Improves circulation by pumping oxygen and nutrients into tissue and organs

Research continues to illustrate the enormous benefits of touch, body work and massage therapy. A massage is good for you anytime, but if you increase the frequency you increase the benefits. Budgeting time and money for regularly scheduled massage therapy is truly an investment in your health and well being.
