Healing Hands Massage Therapy

Healing Hands Massage Therapy 1717 East Avenue Rochester, New York 14610 Tony Cox, LMT (585)739-6227 Massage - An Asset to Health and Healing Most of us set aside our health and well being in order to take care of those things that we consider to be our “priorities.” We let our jobs, families, car and other obligations take precedence over things such as massage therapy. After all, our health can wait…. the car cannot. We think of massage as a luxury, one that we seldom invest the time and resources to enjoy. What we often forget, though, is that we handle the stresses of daily life best when we are physically and mentally fit. Proper diet, exercise, rest and attitude all help and so does regular massage therapy. Anyone living in today’s hectic world can benefit from massage. Those who are particularly good candidates are athletes (both weekend and competitive), office workers who spend many hours at a desk or computer, people who stand all day (waiters and hairdressers, for example) as well as those who do a lot of lifting and anyone in highly stressful situations. Muscle pain and nervous tension are two manifestations of everyday stress and strain that most of us experience. Nearly every disease that strikes the body has a primary cause within the nervous system. In many cases, a feeling of agitation, frustration of being "stressed out" and overwhelmed is the only way your body can let you know something is wrong in the system. These feelings can be very similar to the symptoms of a headache (tight muscles, jaw pain due to clenched teeth), and it is not uncommon to find these conditions together. These feelings are warnings and should be heeded in the same sense that you would necessarily heed the warning lights on your car dashboard. Massage helps to alleviate symptoms and restore balance to frenzied lives. Massage assists our healing in many ways. It melts away tension, relieving pain and discomfort, and this helps us relax physically, mentally and emotionally. Massage improves circulation and lymphatic drainage, thus improving the flow of nutrients to the tissues and the removal of toxins from the body. It improves flexibility and joint range of motion, reduces inflammation, and improves muscle tone. It has a positive effect on the immune system. Massage can help restore emotional balance by releasing the accumulated tension caused by repressed feelings. Regular massage helps us cope with life’s challenges better because we feel both mentally and physically fit. Make massage therapy an integral component of your total mental and physical fitness program. It’s time to think of #1. Come Relax and Enjoy a Professional Full Body Massage!
