Massage to Improve Sleep & Reduce Stress

Massage therapy has been shown to reduce the symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety. It’s excellent for reducing insomnia, and has been shown to improve both the ability to fall asleep and the duration of sleep, allowing for otherwise anxious individuals to rest.

By interrupting the insomnia cycle, massage can play a huge role in reducing emotion-based conditions.
