  • Calms the mind. Promotes emotional balance and a sense of well-being.

  • Gives a feeling of being nurtured.

  • Sets up the conditions for the body to heal itself.

  • Increases the number of red blood cells, especially in the case of anemia.

  • Increases the supply of blood and nutrition to muscles.

  • Acts as a “mechanical cleanser”, stimulating the lymphatic system and hastening the elimination of metabolic byproducts.

  • Improves muscle tone and helps prevent or delay atrophy. Tones and relaxes the body and facial muscles which gives a more youthful appearance.

  • May have a sedative or stimulating effect on the nervous system and many reflex points throughout the body, depending on the type and length of massage given.

  • Increases the excretion (via the kidneys) of fluids and nitrogen, inorganic phosphorous, and salts for individuals with normal kidney function.

  • The skin is the largest organ of the body. It is a major source of the body's hormones and growth factors. Touching the skin releases these natural healing elements into the body.

  • Touch is 10 times stronger than verbal communication; it allows us to release old pain and emotions stored in the muscles.
