Benefits of Medical Massage

A medical massage clinic on Seattle's Capitol Hill

At Lanz Medical Massage we provide a deeper tissue massage, which changes structural as well as the physiological changes of the body. It has many benefits and can help with the following:

  • Decreasing heart rate/pulse as well as respiration rate
  • Decreasing blood pressure 
  • Decreasing stress hormones such as cortisol and norepinephrine
  •  Relieving pain
  • Adding a state of relaxation
  •  Increasing circulation, especially in the abdominal region
  • Activating the digestive processes
  •  Increasing the lymphatic flow rate and reducing swelling
  • Enhancing the natural immune function
