A Powerful Ally
There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into:

* Decreased anxiety
* Enhanced sleep quality
* Greater energy
* Improved concentration
* Increased circulation
* Reduced fatigue

Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.

Profound Effects
In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body, with profound effects. Research shows that with massage: 
*Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain. 
*Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow. 
* Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety. 
* High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones. 
* Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping. 
* Pre-term infants have improved weight gain. 

Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat post surgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.

This was my last massage after years here, since I have to move. Vanessa is professional, adapts to your massage preferences, is REALLY GOOD at it, and is just the kindest human being. I will miss my massages here profoundly.
