Massage encourages better blood flow and nutrients to our joints. Improved muscle conditions help with good bone health and body posture. As it can decrease inflammation, massage can increase the range of motion. It also helps our bones by encouraging them to retain certain nutrients such as phosphorous and fiber. It also breaks down scar tissue and releases knots.

As massage encourages blood flow it manipulates the dilation of the skin’s surface capillaries to improve on its color and resilience. It can also help to reduce scar tissue after surgery.
Massage increases both serotonin and dopamine in the body which helps with depression and anxiety. As it relieves tension it reduces levels of stress and brings the body back down into a calm relaxed state. It can decrease PMS symptoms and relieve anger as it improves a person’s mood.
