Therapeutic massage is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency. Massage has a number of beneficial effects on the body and the mind. Some of these include removal of toxins that can build up in the muscles of the body, increased circulation, and increased flexibility in not only the muscles, but also the connective tissue within the body. Massage also can help with muscle spasms, soft tissue injuries by increasing range of motion, reducing overall recovery time by helping the body in the healing process. In addition, consistent massage has been known to increase balance, release endorphins in the brain and aid with overall well being.
