Massage isn’t just about unwinding after a long day at the office. It also helps in the process of helping the body heal faster as well as improve overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency.
Some conditions that can be helped through massage therapy include:
- Immune system issues
- Muscle spasms
- And many others
Through massage, toxins can be released from the muscles, circulation can be increased, balance can get better, and flexibility in muscles and connective tissue can be improved. Increasing muscle movement through massage can also help in the healing process of muscle spasms and soft tissue injuries.
Medical massage has also been proven to aid in the recovery of many conditions, including back pain, surgery recovery, sleep and eating disorders, and even high blood pressure and diabetes.
Not Just Reactionary
Along with the benefits listed above, medical massage therapy is also a staple in preventative health care. With once-a-month sessions, and with a comprehensive approach including proper nutrition, exercise, and overall chiropractic care, you have a higher chance of relief from stress which leads to preventing injury and disease. Keeping yourself healthy and able to fend off disease will allow you to perform at the top of your game all of the time!
Along with the benefit of stress relief, medical massage has been shown to prevent depression and relieve joint and muscle pain. Overall, the goal of massage therapy is to bring the body back to its natural state with increased healing capabilities.
