Massage Benefits

Massage has many benefits and is useful for the following conditions, and many more.  Massage can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.

No pain no gain?  Not true.

Skin Rolling“The belief that deep pressure equals pain is a myth,” says Christina DeBusk of Massage Magazine. Deep tissue techniques can feel quite intense. However giving a painful massage in many cases is not the answer. Many massage therapists would agree that staying with a firm pressure which offers slight discomfort rather than causing pain is actually less stressful on the client allowing the mind to relax and then the muscle.

Check out this very short article called “4 Benefits of a Deep Tissue Massage.”  I think you’ll be surprised at what you learn.

Next Post: Jamie is attending the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professional Head and Neck Summit where she will discover solutions to some of the most common pain problems.  Check back next week!
