Massage; Not Just a Luxury
Massage can be a luxury often enjoyed as a treat or on a special occasion, but there are a lot more health benefits massage therapy holds.
Massage therapy has numerous health benefits:
- Decrease pain
- Reduce pain from becoming chronic and debilitating
- Anxiety and Depression reduction aka “de-stressing.”
- Boosts Immune system
- Increases flexibility
- Can decrease the need for anti-inflammatory drugs for pain management
Despite the proven health benefits of massage therapy, many insurance companies, unfortunately, don’t cover massage therapy to reduce stress. Some people suffer from muscle tension which can manifest into daily debilitating pain and dysfunction. A physician may prescribe massage therapy to reduce specific muscle tension to combat this dysfunction.
If you are haven’t tried massage therapy as a treatment tool, it may be beneficial for you to speak with one of our knowledgeable therapists and determine what type of massage therapy would best target your pain.
