3948909740.jpg I usually start my day early… wake up at 5:15 in the morning but see to it that I finish my last patient at 3 PM. This is my way of preventing job burn-out.  I then take my usual afternoon nap then go for a walk and swim. Every Wednesday and Saturday are half day off and are times for my weekly massage.  I look forward to it as my time to relieve myself of the stress accumulated during that week…

But more than that are the Medical Benefits of Massage:

1. It has been shown to provide relief of Anxiety.  Studies proved this especially among patients with withdrawal symptoms after quitting alcohol.

2.It can relieve one of muscle soreness… especially after a hard day’s work, after exercise and sports related activities by improving blood flow to the muscles involved. 

3. It can relieve ones pain among those suffering from fibromyalgia, and migraines.

4.Studies proved massage to boosts ones immune system by increasing the number of natural killer cells involved in fighting infections and cancer cells.

5.Massage being a Touch Therapy has been shown to improve self esteem.

All these benefits beyond that which we know why we go to massage… A form of Relaxation and Stress Relief!!! So…After a Hard Day’s Work…Go Ahead…
