There are many benefits of massage. Massage is widely used to help relieve stress and anxiety; aid relaxation and restful sleep; provide clients with a bit of breathing space away from their everyday lives, to reconnect with themselves; reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness; and help relieve muscular aches and pains.
