Massage therapy is one of the best ways to reduce pain, increase mobility, lower stress and improve your health. In fact, the American Massage Therapy Association lists twenty-five medical benefits you can receive through regular massage therapy. Most of the list includes pain reduction related to various conditions and body parts.
You probably already knew that massage can help with sore and stiff muscles, but what you may not realize is the kinds of pain that massage can ease as well as the surprising array of other issues massage can relieve.
To address each of these pain and symptom areas, our massage therapist, Sarah uses Swedish and Craniosacral techniques, but she will also utilize an assortment of other massage modalities, depending on what the client needs.
Yes, it’s true, if you have a stiff, sore neck, a massage can do wonders. And many people associate massage with sports or back injuries. However, massage can relieve the pain of more than just a muscle pull. Massage is also beneficial to those who suffer from fibromyalgia pain, joint replacement pain, and rheumatoid arthritis pain.
Further, researchers have found that massage lowered the activity of cytokines, the proteins that cause inflammation and pain. It also stimulates the mitochondria in cells to convert glucose into the energy that is used for cell repair.In one study on arthritis sufferers it was found that regular massage led to a decrease in pain and stiffness and an overall improvement in hand grip strength, the range of motion and function of the joints.
LOWER STRESS & BLOOD PRESSURE
In addition to lowering your stress and reducing anxiety, massage can improve your sleep, boost immunity and ease depression symptoms. The key to these benefits is that massage affects the body’s production of the hormones that are linked to blood pressure, anxiety, heart rate and other key vital signs.
IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH
During a massage, chemicals are released when the muscles relax. This improves circulation that enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles. With more nutrients and oxygen available, cells function more efficiently, which improves your overall health.
Book your massage today and experience better sleep, greater ease of motion and less stress. If you have particular symptoms, pain or health concerns, make sure you let your therapist know so they can tailor their efforts to your specific needs.
