Massage Therapy for Pain Management
More and more people are looking for effective, natural solutions to supplement their pain management. From deep tissue massage to sports massage to Trigger Point Therapy, our therapeutic services can help you relieve pain naturally. Studies have shown Massage can trigger an endorphin release that raises your threshold for pain. Specific types of massage for pain management like Swedish and sports massage can also help boost mood and relaxation by releasing oxytocin and serotonin.
If you have chronic conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia or migraines, massage therapy may be a helpful aid in managing pain. A study from the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami showed that receiving massage on a regular basis lowers anxiety, reduces pain and improves grip strength for those with arthritis. If you battle with pain due to fibromyalgia, research has shown that receiving regular therapeutic massage reduces pain, anxiety and depression and encourages relaxation, which can help restore normal sleep patterns.
Massage Therapy Improves Posture
From board meetings to bunko groups, there’s a lot of tension these days-as in neck and back tension. “Our necks and backs hurt, and poor posture is the No. 1 culprit!
When you hunch forward, your body isn’t properly aligned. “Not only does poor posture look bad, but it forces some muscles to work incredibly hard all day long while others get weaker,” Poor posture can put you in other slumps, too. “When you slouch, you’re pressing down on your internal organs, which affects digestion,” adding that circulation and breathing capacity can take a hit too.
Unlike other bad habits, poor posture can be relaxing to correct. Why? Because massage can help get your body back on track. Allowing the body to reinforce healthy and natural movements can be one of the most beneficial aspects of massage therapy.
Massage can relax and loosen the muscles made sore by bad posture, allowing your body to position itself in its natural-and pain-free-posture.
With ongoing massage the muscles are loosened and relaxed-joints have greater freedom and pressure points are relieved. This allows the body to position itself in a healthy and natural posture, therefore avoiding the movements and positions developed over time as a reaction to the pain.
Benefits of Improved Posture
- Muscles are loosened and relaxed
- Joints enjoy greater freedom
- Pressure points are relieved
Massage Therapy Improves Blood Circulation
The long-term effects of massage therapy are more than skin deep. Better blood circulation is part of the chain reaction that occurs in the body as a result of receiving massage therapy on a regular basis.
A person with poor circulation can suffer from a variety of discomforts including pooling of the fluid in the extremities (like the toes), cold hands and feet, fatigue and achiness created by an accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles. Good circulation brings damaged, tense muscles the oxygen rich blood they need to heal.
Massage facilitates circulation because the pressure created by the massage technique actually moves blood through the congested areas. The release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow in. The squeezing and pulling also flushes lactic acid from the muscles and improves the circulation of the lymph fluid which carries metabolic waste away from muscles and internal organs, resulting in lower blood pressure and improved body function.
Improved blood circulation is just one more benefit of massage therapy. Combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise, massage can be a powerful, natural ally for a healthier lifestyle.
Benefits of Improved Circulation
- Enhances blood flow
- Naturally lowers blood pressure
- Improves body function
Massage Therapy Improves Flexibility
Muscle injuries are more common now than they were 50 years ago. That’s not because we’re exercising harder. It’s because we’re more sedentary. What’s worse, as we age our joints tend to tighten, making range of motion and flexibility even more restricted.
Massage therapy is a beneficial treatment for maintaining and improving flexibility and motion. By working on muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints, regular massage can improve your flexibility and range of motion, keeping your joints more fluid and making them less injury prone.
As you can see, massage is a great way to relax stressed muscles, stimulate blood flow and improve flexibility. So is daily stretching.
One benefit of stretching is an improvement of blood circulation, which aids in illness recovery and disease prevention. Elongating muscles will also improve posture and your joints’ range of motion. Stretching and massage are even more important for someone who is physically active. Loose muscles are less prone to strains and sprains during a workout, according to ACE.
Incorporating massage and stretching into a fitness routine also will help reduce soreness after a workout. Stretching beforehand will allow greater freedom of movement when exercising and longer workout periods because it helps prevent a build up of lactic acid in your blood. Regular post-workout massages can then aid in the recovery and relaxation process.
Benefits of Improved Flexibility and Range of Motion
Stimulates the production of the body’s natural lubricants to keep flexibility at a maximum
- Can enhance athletic performance
- Helps prevent active lifestyle injuries by staying flexible
Massage Therapy Lowers Blood Pressure
One effective way to stave off high blood pressure naturally is massage therapy. Long-term studies have shown that a consistent massage program can decrease diastolic and systolic blood pressure; decrease salivary and urinary cortisol stress-hormone levels; and lower sources for depression, anxiety and hostility.
Benefits of Lower Blood Pressure
- Lower depression, anxiety, and hostility
- Keeps stress hormone levels under control
- Low blood pressure can contribute to lowering the odds of having a heart attack, kidney failure, or a stroke
