Massages are much more than just a great way to unwind and relax. In fact, many health benefits are experienced from therapeutic massages such as enhanced recovery times, reduced stress, natural pain management, reduced risk for injury and most importantly, improvement in overall health.
Here are three ways in which a therapeutic massage can benefit you:
1. Naturally manage your pain: There are three types of massage treatments that are designed specifically for patients suffering with chronic and acute pain: trigger point therapy, myofasical release and the well-known deep tissue massage. Each of these massages focuses on specific areas of the body and are designed to help effectively manage symptoms such as back and neck pain, headaches and even migraines.
2. Speedy recoveries: After any type of injury, the body may sometimes struggle to heal and without proper treatment, scar tissue may form, which only further delays the healing process. Massage therapy treatments work to reduce the formation of scar tissue by promoting the natural healing process.
3. Reduced injury risk: If you’re someone who likes to live an active lifestyle or your daily occupation requires a lot of physical labor, you are at an increased risk for injuries. Over-training or Over-working can tear and strain your muscles, causing an injury to your back or neck, triggering chronic pain. Regular therapeutic massage appointments help your body flush out the build up of lactic acid that results from heavy exercise, helping the to body repair itself and maintain overall health.
