How Does Therapeutic Massage Benefit Me?

Therapeutic massage is necessary when you are in pain or have a complaint regarding muscle function. Stress, injury, poor circulation, overuse, and misuse can cause pain and discomfort as well as restrict your normal range of movement. If left unattended, these conditions can cause overcompensation and strain on healthy muscle tissue and can seriously affect your quality of life. Massage therapy stretches and loosens tight muscles and connective tissue. This breaks down adhesions and frees your range of motion. Massage therapy also activates nerve receptor signals along nerve fibers to temporarily block chronic pain signals from reaching the brain. In addition, massage releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller, into the brain and nervous system to reduce the feeling of pain without pharmaceuticals.

How Does Massage Help Reduce the Effects of Stress?

Massage therapy has an amazing effect on your body’s nervous system. When massage activates your parasympathetic nervous system, it counteracts your body’s negative response to stress, relaxing muscle tension and allowing your heart rate, blood pressure, and circulation to return to normal.

Stress becomes negative and harmful when the challenges of our life become constant and unrelenting. This imbalance of the body, mind, and soul can lead to physical manifestations including headaches, backaches, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal problems, sleep disorders, ulcers, muscular tension, and exhaustion, both mental and physical. If left unchecked, these symptoms can take their toll on our health and lead to chronic diseases.
