Benefits of Massage Therapy

By Western Berks on March 21st, 2016

At Western Berks Physical Therapy, not only do we specialize in physical therapy in Robesonia, but we also specialize in massage therapy. Massage therapy promotes wellness and encourages awareness of your body. Used in conjunction with physical therapy, massage therapy can do a lot to alleviate pain and promote healing in your body. There are several benefits to be had from massage therapy.

Helps with Depression and Anxiety

Life can be hard. Between balancing your job, family, and friends, there is no way to avoid stress and anxiety and everyone has a different way of coping. Massage therapy offers a healthy way to release it all, leaving you feeling relaxed, restored, and ready for the next curveball that is thrown your way.

Improves Immunity

No one likes getting sick and we are always looking for ways to boost our immunity. What if you could do so just by laying down and relaxing? Regular massages can help increase your immunity and help you fight off illness. Massage therapy helps stimulate the lymph flow and allow your body to rid itself of harmful toxins.

Releases Endorphins

Nothing beats the endorphin high you feel after a long, hard run. Massages release the same endorphins in your body, which not only serve as natural pain killers for your body, but they can also boost your mood.
Message therapy offers much more than just relaxation. These benefits, combined with the many benefits of physical therapy, are sure to leave you feeling restored and on your way to healing. Come into our physical therapy and wellness center today and explore all of the different services we have to offer.
