Benefits of Massage Therapy

Although massage therapists do not diagnose or medically treat clients, there is significant evidence and research suggesting massage therapy is helpful when it comes to:

  • ADHD in children.
  • Age-related disorders.
  • Alcohol withdrawal.
  • Attentiveness and alertness.
  • Autism.
  • Cancer-related fatigue.
  • Depression.
  • Diabetes.
  • Exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles, reducing muscle-shortening for those with restricted range of motion.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Hypertension.
  • Improving circulation by pumping more oxygen and nutrients to tissues and vital organs.
  • Increasing joint flexibility.
  • Infertility.
  • Multiple sclerosis.
  • Neck and cervical spine pain.
  • Reducing muscle spasms and cramps.
  • Reducing post surgery adhesions and edema; reducing and realigning scar tissue after healing has occurred.
  • Releasing endorphins that reduce pain.
  • Relieving migraine pain and decreasing the need for medication.
  • Sleep disorders.
  • Spinal-cord injury.
  • Sports performance enhancement, care of injuries and recovery from workouts.
  • Stimulating the lymph system, the body’s natural defense against toxic invaders.


It’s important to note there are some conditions where massage is NOT recommended

For example,  massage is contraindicated in people with certain forms of cancer,  phlebitis,  some cardiac problems,  skin conditions and infectious diseases.    Practitioners and consumers are strongly encouraged when there is any doubt to ask about specific health conditions and seek a doctor’s consultation and permission before providing or undergoing services.
