What can massage do for me?

- #MOOD.  Improve and regulate your mood by reconnecting to a deeper rhythm of breathing and resting. Massage promotes the release of hormones, our bodies "natural pain killers” that control our mood, sleep, and hunger. When you exercise,  or someone gives you a hug, or you listen to music, the body receives the stimulation and begins to release the happy hormones, endorphins & dopamine, or the love hormone, oxytocin. These hormones basically have you feeling good, bringing your whole being to a natural high. Same happens when you receive a massage. Those hormones are the ones doing the magic, I'm just there to activate them through manual therapy. thus, massage reduces stress, depression and anxiety.

- Massage therapy also enhances your exercise and physical performance by increasing mobility and flexibility for your body. Whether you're a runner, ball-player, guitar-player, digital designer, massage can help release tension from everyday use of these muscles.
