We live in a fast-paced and stressful world. Many activities and jobs lead to pain and disability in our muscles and joints. Massage therapy remedies pain caused by injury, overuse, and activities such as computer use and physical jobs. In addition, since many chronic diseases are caused by stress, relief from stress is a must. Massage therapy provides the care your body and mind needs to stay healthy. It does not just relieve pain; massage can bring your body back to a state of wellness.
How Can Massage Help You?
Massage can relieve physical and mental stress as well as chronic pain. For example, just one session relaxes the entire body, benefits your immune system, reduces swelling, and improves your circulation.
When weak or overused muscles get relief, the chance of muscle spasms or cramping are much less likely. Also, massage helps your body repair injuries and increases your range of motion. After a single session, you will have more energy and an increased sense of well-being.
According to the Mayo Clinic, massage can help relieve:
- Anxiety and Depression
- Problems with digestion
- Fibromyalgia and nerve pain
- Soft tissue strains or injuries and sports injuries
- TMJ pain
Feeling anxious and depressed? Constant aches and pains? Have an injury that never healed properly? Diagnosed with cancer? Massage is an excellent supportive therapy, providing benefits for any condition.
