What is Massage Therapy?
How does Massage Therapy help?
Massage therapy can help with a variety of aches and pain such as back pain, migraines from muscle tension, sports injuries, work related injuries, pre\post-surgical healing, digestive issues and stress. Massage therapy can also help with whiplash injuries sustained from car accidents. Even during pregnancy, massage therapy can help with low back and hip pain often found when posture changes during fetus growth.
Massage therapy helps by increasing circulation (which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and can help remove waste product), decreasing swollen joints and muscles and assist in making scar tissue more pliable, making the body heal faster. Massage therapy can relax muscle tissue, which may lead to decreased nerve compression, increased joint space, range of motion and enhance energy and vitality.
