  2. Promotes Relaxation and Improves Sleep 
    With cortisol reduction, you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated, improving sleep quality.
  3. Improves Blood Circulation 
    Massage therapy also accelerates the blood supply, in turn healing muscle aches, reducing muscle pressure and also helps lower blood pressure. 
  4. Reduces Pain & Improves Joint Flexibility
    Remedial massages can help relieve pressure and pain in joints and muscles, and also helps increase flexibility as well.  
  5. Reduces Headaches/ Migraine Pain
