Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage therapy has been used as a therapeutic treatment for centuries. It is widely accepted as an effective treatment for reducing stress, for relieving muscle pain and stiffness, and for aiding in rehabilitation from injuries. New research has also shown that massage therapy can boost immune function.
Massage therapy works by loosening muscle fibers that may be tight, strained or spastic. It can also help increase circulation and joint range of motion. Tight muscles are often painful and can be seen in conditions such as whiplash, tendonitis, headaches, or simply an aching back. Tight muscles can restrict circulation which can affect the health of the tissues. They can also press on nerves as is sometimes seen in certain cases of sciatic pain. For someone who is suffering pain from these conditions the results of massage can be very dramatic.
The benefits of massage are not limited solely to muscular problems. Massage can be used in the treatment of restrictions from scar tissue, insomnia, constipation, respiratory conditions (such as bronchitis), oedema (swelling), as well as being helpful in the rehabilitation of many conditions, from fractures and sprains, to post-operative conditions.
Massage can be used for many things from Relaxation to Rehabilitation.
