Reduced muscle tension, stiffness, spasms ~

Massage therapy relaxes muscle tissue, loosens contracted, shortened, hardened, tense muscles by increasing the circulation of blood. Massage can also reduce nerve compression, stimulate weak, flaccid muscles, and relieve tension-related headaches and the effects of eye-strain.
 
Promotes Healing ~

Fosters faster healing of strained muscles and sprained ligaments by reducing pain and swelling. Massage also reduces formation of excessive scar tissue.
 
Relief of acute and chronic pain ~ 

Massage promotes recovery from fatigued muscles and tissues and that cause minor aches and pains by removing impurities and reducing inflammation in the area.
 
Increased mobility and range of motion of joints ~ 

Massage provides a stretching action to both the muscles and connective tissues that surround and support the muscles and many other parts of the body, which helps keep these tissues elastic and  improves range of motion (reduces chance of further injury).
 
Improved blood circulation ~ 

The physical manipulation of massage has two major physical effects: Increase in blood and lymph circulation and relaxation and normalization of the soft tissue (muscle, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) which releases nerves and deeper connective tissues. Blood circulation is improved by the physical manipulation that releases certain chemicals in response to the relaxation being experienced. The oxygen capacity of the blood can increase 10-15% after massage. Improved circulation can enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrients into muscle cells. As cellular health improves, tissues function more efficiently. More efficient functioning leads to the removal of waste products and may increase the absorption of excess fluids and reduce swelling in soft tissues. Always drink plenty of fresh, filtered or purified water after a massage.
 
Stimulated or soothed nervous system ~ 

Massage balances the nervous system by soothing or stimulating it, depending on which effect is needed.
 
Enhanced skin condition ~

Massage enhances the condition of the skin by improving the function of the sebaceous and sweat glands, keeping the skin lubricated, clean, and cool. Loving Lotus Healing Arts uses only the finest massage creams, lotions and essential oils to further enhance your skin.
 
Better digestion and intestinal function ~

Massage increases the body's production of gastric juices, saliva, and urine and increases excretion of nitrogen, inorganic phosphorus & salt. As a result, the metabolic rate increases. Always drink plenty of fresh, filtered or purified water after a massage.
 
Better Quality of Life ~

Massage increases endorphin's, which can increase your sense of well being.  Also reduced stress, cortisol levels, anxiety, tension, depression and  pain.
