When was the last time you had an absolutely transcendent massage? Few things in life are as relaxing as simply turning off and tuning out while a trained professional kneads your stress away, both mentally and physically.

Knowing the power of a great massage, we’ve enlisted one of the industry’s best to offer our clients the utmost in stress-relieving experiences. From a quick thirty-minute Swedish massage designed to soothe sore muscles to an intensive two-hour hot stone massage that sends heat deep into your core, melting your stresses into oblivion, at Newport Medical and Wellness, we’ve got the antidote to your frustration. Bliss and balance are just a phone call away.

Why Massage Therapy Works

The benefits of massage therapy are practically endless, not to mention well-documented. The most obvious result of a massage is a reduction in muscle tension and pain, but the list goes on from there: stimulating lymphatic flow, enhancing immunity, improving flexibility, releasing endorphins, improving circulation and even reducing the frequency and severity of headaches for some clients.

Bodywork is a key component in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Benefiting both the body and the mind, the balance brought about by massage therapy is undeniable. From stress management to more specific medical benefits, placing a standing appointment for regular massage sessions on your calendar is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.

What Massage Can Do For You

According to the ABMP (Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals):

“Experts estimate that upwards of 90 percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into decreased anxiety, enhanced sleep quality, greater energy, improved concentration, increased circulation and reduced fatigue.”
