massage therapy for REST AND RECOVERY

These days, most of us live our lives in a sympathetic state (“fight or flight”), which keeps our bodies and emotions in constant stress. It’s important to find balance between sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) which is known as “rest and digest.” Massage therapy is a great way to tap into the PNS. It also provides many other benefits.
