The Benefits of Massage
Massage is beneficial in many ways, both emotional and physical. Did you know, for example, that massage can promote emotional health? Massage is an excellent natural stress-reliever, and stress is one of the most harmful factors that can negatively impact our health. Other benefits of massage, both physical and emotional, include:
One of the hormones produced when we are stressed is cortisol. Too much of this hormone can cause headaches, problems with digestion, and a disrupted sleep pattern. Massage therapy reduces the amount of cortisol in the body, thereby promoting relaxation. In today’s stressful world it’s fundamentally important to learn how to take care of yourself and learn how to relax.
Massage encourages proper blood flow around the body as it helps to stimulate circulation and boosts the efficiency of the body’s mechanics. As a result, anyone who benefits from regular massage therapy will experience a significant improvement in their energy levels.
The manipulation of the skin and underlying tissues can significantly improve concentration levels in the body. When certain parts of the body are stimulated in accordance with acupuncture or reflexes, the body naturally boosts the level of concentration and memory power.
Because massage directly impacts hormone secretion in the body, it can help to enhance your mood and help you feel more relaxed and content. During a massage session, chemical neurotransmitters that are connected to happiness are released: serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. These hormones are sometimes informally known as ‘happy hormones’. As well as increasing the production and release of happy hormones, massage can also reduce the level of hormones that are secreted when we are stressed or afraid such as adrenaline and norepinephrine.
Chronic Pain Reliever
Chronic pain and illnesses can be relieved by massage therapy. The word ‘chronic’ means that the pain or illness is consistent and follows the person throughout their life. Chronic illness can really diminish a person’s quality of life and their overall outlook. Examples of chronic disease include arthritis, asthma, diabetes, and cystic fibrosis. Since chronic pain is consistently experienced by the sufferer, the only way to address the problem is to manage the pain. Massage therapy helps to alleviate pain and discomfort by releasing serotonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps to ease pain.

Massage Therapy Services Offered
Zen Body Therapy offers a wide variety of services, each of which can be customized to suit your own needs as a client. Here are some of the types of massage we offer:
Office massages are specialized massages offered in a massage chair. They aim to address the physical ailments associated with working in an office. These include neck, back, and shoulder pain, as well as overall stiffness of joints. This form of massage also works to alleviate stress, as the office environment can be a very stressful atmosphere.
Seated massages are carried out while the client rests, face-first, in a specially designed supportive massage chair. The chair is designed to provide an experience that is not unlike a massage table. The maneuvers of a seated massage are similar to those carried out during a full body relaxation or deep-tissue massage, without the need to remove clothing or use massage oil.
These are just some of the services we offer. We also offer an event chair massage, couple’s massage, deep tissue massage, and many more! Contact us to create a customized plan for you or your loved one.
