Townsville Massage is devoted to providing quality professional massage therapy.
An increasing number of research studies show massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins (enhancing medical treatment).
Although therapeutic massage does not increase muscle strength, it can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and in doing so, will partially compensate for the lack of exercise and inactivity resulting from illness or injury.
It also can hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise , injury and post operative conditions.
