THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
Current research is beginning to validate what most clients already know about massage therapy: it can help ease or prevent many common ailments that are often treated with prescription drugs and/or hospitalization. Massage therapy is based on the ability of the body to naturally heal itself. Massage has been shown to:
• Decrease stress
• Increase circulation
• Release muscle tightness
• Improve joint range of motion
• Release endorphins
• Diminish aches and pains
• Reduce anxiety & depression associated with chronic fatigue syndrome

Both the skin and the brush are dry which helps promote cell renewal, blood flow and smoother, tighter skin. This also helps the lymphatic system release toxins.
