Why is massage beneficial?
Massage is beneficial because it boosts your immune system. It enhances our emotions by the simple power of touch and reduces stress and tension through relaxation. For medical improvements, massage reduces swelling/edema for pre or post-surgery.
Why do you recommend regular appointments?
Muscle memory. When we train our body to function with our daily activities by ignoring pain, our body starts ignoring pain and resetting its memory positions. It then sends pain signals to different parts of the body. This is what we call the domino effect. It often takes a long time to set muscle memory, so the need for multiple appointments is usually necessary.
Why is it important to drink water?
To help flush out your system and help rid it of toxin build up. For example, when you see a saltwater fish tank with scum all around it, you may wonder how the fish stay alive. The film is on the glass, but if it gets stirred into the water, you need to get it out as soon as possible before the fish die. A deep tissue massage works in the same manner. The toxins are released and stirred around in your system. If you do not drink enough water, you may feel sore the next day.
