Stressed? Massage Therapy Can Help

Stress is common in today's fast-paced world, but it can take harmful physical and emotional tolls if it's not managed properly. Massage therapy is one way to help manage your stress.

Massage Therapy + Stress Relief

    • Recent research suggests that the symptoms of stress, as well as anxiety and depression, may be directly affected with massage therapy.
    • Studies show that massage therapy can reduce stress significantly on physical and psychological levels including decreased blood pressure and heart rate, as well as significant changes in emotional states.
    • According to AMTA's 2015 Consumer Survey, 23% of individuals claim their primary reason for receiving a massage in the previous 12 months was stress related.
