BOLINGBROOK, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-
-In recognition of May as Better Sleep
Warehouse, providers of high quality,
products, points to the benefits of
massage therapy for an optimal
night's rest. With an estimated 50
to 70 million Americans experiencing
sleep issues that affect their
health, the National Institutes of Health
advise that massage
therapy reduces fatigue and improves sleep.
"Adequate sleep is necessary for healthy functioning, recommends the National
Sleep Foundation, and quality sleep is vital to health and
wellness," says Kray Kibler, CFO, Massage Warehouse. "The Centers for
Disease Control have warned that insufficient sleep is associated with a
number of chronic diseases and conditions - such as diabetes,
cardiovascular disease, obesity and depression. The good news is that
massage therapy improves sleep, boosts the immune system and reduces
aches and pains."
indicates that massage can improve sleep in infants, children, adults
and the elderly alike, as well as individuals with psychiatric
disorders, fibromyalgia, cancer, heart disease, lower back pain,
cerebral palsy and breast disease.
Massage Warehouse delivers quality massage products at fair prices,
including linens, oils and creams, massage tables, aromatherapy
products, rehab and exercise equipment, collagens, herb wraps and salon
supplies. Massage Warehouse supports the industry through advocacy and
education, enabling massage therapists to optimize their practices and
deliver better health and wellness to a growing number of people.
"Massage helps people spend more time in deep sleep, the restorative
stage in which the body barely moves, which reduces the neurotransmitter
associated with pain," says Anne Williams, director of Education, Associated
Bodywork & Massage Professionals, and author of Spa Bodywork
and Teaching Massage. "We're pleased to join Massage Warehouse in
spreading the word about the exceptional therapeutic value of massage."
