The Benefits of Massage Therapy
Massage was not traditionally seen as a therapeutic intervention. Just because massage feels like a pampering treatment doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. The medical community is currently undergoing a massive shift in practice and is actively embracing massage to help alleviate depression, anxiety, fatigue, nausea, pain and stress. Some of the benefits of massage include increasing range of motion, helping restore flexibility, and contributing to your general well-being. Starting a therapeutic massage routine puts you on a path that will nurture a less stressful more relaxed lifestyle. Experts suggest that receiving massages twice monthly improves your overall health.
As an alternative to conventional medicine massage is second only to chiropractic and osteopathic care combined. Top reasons for seeking massage therapy is relief of chronic pain conditions such as headache, back and neck pain. Massage can also help relieve other chronic conditions including arthritis, sciatica and more.
Chronic pain can result in an excessive release of a stress hormone called cortical which is linked to everything from weight gain to a comprised immune system.
A common response to pain is to minimize movement resulting in decreased flexibility, mobility and balance. General massage has been found not only to dramatically reduce cortical levels but also to positively influence mood and immune function of those with chronic pain by triggering the release of pain killing endorphins by the body. Profound Touch is looking forward to building a mutually rewarding therapeutic massage relationship with you as you travel life's path.
