The Benefits of Regular Massage At Kneaded Massage Works

By Elisha Neubauer

While mostly associated with spas and retreats, massage has a great variety of legitimate medical benefits that sometimes get overlooked. Sure, getting a massage feels great. It can be a great way to relax and spend some "me time," but there's often much more to it than that.

Massage can actually help with anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, insomnia related to stress, myofascial pain syndrome, soft tissue strains or injuries, sports injuries, and temporomandibular joint pain, among many others.

Kneaded Massage works, in Andover, Massachusetts, knows exactly how to combine both the relaxation and medical benefits of massage.

During your first visit at Kneaded Massage Works, you will have a sit-down discussion with your therapist reviewing your specific needs. Your session is then tailored to specifically meet those needs. Throughout the course of your session, your therapist will check with you to ensure you are receiving just the right amount of pressure. In addition, a specialized cushion system is utilized to get the body into a good alignment and provide more comfort than a standard flat table.

To continue the benefits at home, stress reducing exercises/techniques are provided for you to do between sessions in the comfort of your own home.

"One of the benefits of massage is that it heightens one's awareness of their own body and helps them take control of the stress creeping back in," Ken St. Pierre, owner, said. "On the next visit, I follow up to see how they responded to the last session and if we are on track to reducing one's stress or injury."

At Kneaded Massage Works, St. Pierre places a great emphasis on establishing a calm, soothing, relaxing, and safe environment. Many of his clients state that simply revisiting the space reduces stress virtually immediately.

When adding regular massage therapy sessions into your lifestyle, you'll immediately notice several benefits. Regular massages lower the threshold of stress and increase flexibility, which in turn reduces chance of injury. They increase circulation, which helps the body recover faster after a workout or athletic event. Regular massage also boosts the immune system. Not to mention, including massage in your wellness plan increases overall wellbeing and a life balance.

When it comes to massage, St. Pierre knows his stuff. This year he enters his 23rd year as a licensed massage therapist. While he is highly trained and experienced in massage, St. Pierre is also aware of the benefits of good old-fashioned customer service.

"Whether it is stress reduction, recovering from an injury or training for an event, you are treated with respect and compassion," St. Pierre said.
