Yes, you need a massage!
Massage is one of the oldest healing modalities and is still the most sought after therapy for pain and stress reduction. No matter how laid-back your attitude or carefree your lifestyle, very few people escape stress. The more we learn about the physical effects of stress, the more we begin to understand how important it is to find ways to deal with stress. Massage relieves muscle tension and reduces pain and stress, boosting our immune system’s ability to resist dis-ease and maintain wellness.
For more information about the therapeutic benefits of massage, we recommend you visit the University of Miami’s Touch Research Institute and learn about data supporting the many benefits of massage therapy by Dr. Tiffany Field’s team of researchers.
