Finding a Natural Path to Relief and Recovery in Queanbeyan

Massage therapy has many benefits.

Massage is a natural pain reliever.

Pain is a sign that your body uses to tell you something is wrong. When pain strikes, many reach for medications to mask their discomfort. Rather than eliminating the cause of the problem, these painkillers only cover up symptoms. Massage therapy can help relieve your pain by relaxing tense muscles and releasing blocks in your energy channels, increasing your circulation and lymphatic drainage.

How Massage Helps You Heal

Massage’s many benefits come from stimulation of the circulatory, nervous and respiratory systems, connective tissue and muscle. It also boosts the lymphatic systems of the body, enhancing the elimination of excess fluids, pathogenic organisms, toxins and waste.

Massage also relaxes muscles and decreases spasm or pain. It breaks up scar tissue and increases the mobility of joints and tissues while promoting relaxation and the release of emotional tension. All of these benefits combined act to improve energy, wellbeing, healing and athletic performance.
