The specific use of massage can be found in many arenas and for all stages of our lives, including pregnancy, childbirth, elder care, and hospice. It is an important asset in healthcare today, and may be provided in chiropractors’ offices, in physical therapy settings, in wellness clinics, and in hospitals as part of a patient’s recovery plan.

Massage and Recovery Studies
Indicate compassionate touch speeds recovery from illness, and provides a release from tension that hastens healing. Whether a person is in the hospital or at home, gentle massage supports the return to health. As the tissues are massaged, the muscles relax and take in oxygen and blood, which helps the body gather strength. The depletion felt following an illness is often lessened, and at times even eliminated, through massage.
