There is more to massage than you may envision. This therapeutic treatment can be used to aid in stress management and may give you a sense of being pampered, something we all need from time to time. Massage in the therapeutic setting, however, is vastly different from that offered at your local spa.
Patients who receive therapeutic massage are better able to manage stress. The focused massage, however, can also:
- Promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles
- Enhance energy and vitality
- Improve flexibility and range of motion
- Release nerve compression for a reduction in symptoms of carpal tunnel and sciatica
- Loosen tight muscles for improved comfort
- Facilitate the elimination of waste and the nourishment of cells by improving circulation
The numerous physical benefits that massage brings can improve vitality and quality of life. The enhancement of circulation alone leads to an increase in the absorption of oxygen and nutrients into every cell in the body. Subsequent improvements in cellular function aid in the body’s immune response and in the reduction in systemic inflammation. Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis as well as many others have a positive response to therapeutic massage.
