So many studies have shown massage therapy to be an effective treatment for reducing stress levels as well as pain and muscle tension. Stimulating the soft tissues of the body will release toxins. This, in turn, will loosen muscles, which will allow the body to achieve its full capacity of movement.
Muscular aches and pains are the most common reasons that drive people to seek massage therapy. Here are some of the known remedies it provides.
BACK & NECK PAIN
Much evidence proves that massage helps treat chronic, uncomplicated back pain. Massage therapy accompanied by proper exercise is also more effective than massage alone. In the same way, much evidence also proves manual therapy can help clients with neck pain.
HEADACHES & MIGRAINES
Tension-type headaches and those related to neck pain appear to respond well to massage therapy. Research reveals patients experienced lesser pain levels and frequency.
- FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that involves widespread pain, exhaustion, sleep, and memory issues. Research about this disorder supports using massage therapy for pain, anxiety, sleep, and quality of life. Researchers found that long-term treatments are more effective when accompanied by regular massage.
- FOR ATHLETES
Athletes make a point to get massage treatments between training sessions and after events. The reason is that massage therapy has proven that it can improve strength in muscles damaged by overuse and speed up recovery. Athletes find that they recover fast from over-exertion when they receive a massage.
- FOR PEOPLE EXPERIENCING CHALLENGES
A healthy body of evidence shows that massage therapy can help with mood-related challenges. This includes people with anxiety, depression, and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
