Massage can help to improve circulation

Massage therapy is great for boosting blood circulation, which helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients around the body more efficiently.


Massage can increase lymphatic flow

Your lymphatic system is a system of tubes and lymph nodes running throughout your body which make up an important part of the immune system. It helps to fight bacteria and other infections, and a healthy lymph flow also helps clear toxins from your body.


Massage can speed up post injury healing

If you’ve overdone it participating in your favorite activity, or hurt yourself accidentally you’ll be glad to know that massage doesn’t just help reduce muscle soreness and stiffness, it can also break up scar tissue, freeing up movement and enhancing your recovery.

Massage can help to increase your range of motion

Another thing that a great massage therapist can do is use techniques that stimulate the production of lubricants between connective tissues, which improves flexibility and balance. This can have a profound effect on your quality of life and ability to do day to day activities.


Massage can help you to improve your posture

Massage helps to train your muscles, which improves the posture of your body as well as correcting any imbalances caused by sitting for long periods – which are common in people who sit at a desk all day.


Massage can give your immune system a boost

Massage is known to boost production of lymphocytes – the white blood cells which help fight off disease. Although a massage can’t guarantee you’ll never get another cold, there has been research that suggests it helps the body to fight infections and reduce the severity and duration of bugs and minor illnesses. For an added immune boost, Northern Lights Massage offers an aromatherapy blend with essential oils to keep your immune system in tip-top shape. Ask for it during your next session!


Massage makes you feel happy!

Massage can make you feel happier

This one seems obvious, but there's a reason you feel happy after a massage. The action of massaging the skin stimulates alpha brain waves, which are associated with relaxation, and promotes the release of endorphins – the body’s feel-good chemicals.


Massage can help you to de-stress

Massage is known to help reduce cortisol levels in the body. Cortisol is the primary stress hormone, so elevated levels are not good for your body at all. At the same time, massage has been shown to boost serotonin and dopamine levels, making you feel more relaxed and happy.


Massage could give you a better night’s sleep

If insomnia is your bedfellow, try a massage. Massage can help to balance out your sleep pattern and overcome insomnia and the fatigue that goes with not getting enough sleep.
