The Benefits of Massage Therapy

At Scruples we not only care about our client's relaxation, but also their continued wellness.  Our highly skilled licensed massage therapists follow a certain protocol with their client.  Our clients complete a confidential questionnaire concerning their medical history which is then discussed and reviewed with the massage therapist. Subsequent to the massage, the therapist post their comments and notes, and the forms are then placed in a secure locked filing cabinet to ensure the clients privacy. When the client returns for their next massage, the questionnaire is pulled and reviewed with the therapist, to discuss any improvements or additional issues that need to be addressed.


We offer a wide variety of massages, in accordance with the client's needs. Research concludes that massage can be a powerful ally in one's healthcare regimen. Experts have shown a link between stress and illness, as well as the aging process. Massage therapy is one of the best ways to relieve stress and improve one's overall health. Reducing one's level of stress and anxiety may also help in slowing the aging process. By managing  stress with massage, this can translate into decreased anxiety, better sleep quality, greater energy, improved circulation, and reduced fatigue. Not only are there physical benefits to massage, but, there are valuable emotional benefits too

 Research demonstrates that specific physiological and chemical changes flow throughout the body during and after a massage. It has been specifically noted that with massage, arthritis sufferers have fewer aches and pains, asthmatic children show better pulmonary function, burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching and anxiety. Other advantages include high blood pressure patients reporting a lower diastolic blood pressure after several sessions, and preterm infants have improved weight gain.Additional benefits of Massage Therapy are as follows.


  • ·         alleviates low back pain
  • ·         assists expectant mothers with shorter easier labor
  • ·         enhances immunity by stimulating lymph flow
  • ·         stretches weak, tight, or atrophied muscles
  • ·         assists athletes to prepare for, and recover from strenuous workouts
  • ·         reduces post-surgery adhesions and swelling
  • ·         relieves migraine pain

These are just a few of the benefits of touch, which range from treating a chronic disease or to alleviating the tensions of today's living.
