Hands-On

Kim Young, a licensed massage therapist at the Well-Being Center, explains that the total experience of massage therapy is designed to reduce stress—body, mind and spirit.

“Massage not only relaxes the muscles but also helps the body release toxins. That’s why we recommend drinking a lot of water after a massage—to help remove those toxins from the body,” Young said.

During massage, the client lies on a padded table—partially or fully undressed—covered with a sheet. The therapist carefully moves the sheet during the massage to keep the client’s body covered. “In addition to reducing stress and relieving sore muscles, massage can also lower blood pressure, improve blood circulation and boost the immune system,” Young explains. “Research suggests that massage can signal the body to release natural pain killers called endorphins.”
