Pain Relief through Massage Therapy
Medicine has come a long way from the days when pain relief was only offered by a hot water bottle and some liniment. Now you can benefit from an individualized program that addresses your body’s specific needs, alleviates pain, and promotes healing. Massage is one therapy that creates lasting benefits.
Massage therapy has been around for over 4,000 years and is highly successful in relieving pain, regardless of its cause. The therapy manipulates soft tissues in the body with the purpose of normalizing those tissues. A therapist applies manual techniques including fixed or movable pressure, and holding or moving parts of the body. The pressure can be deep or adjusted to the comfort level of the person on the table.
Chronic pain is a distraction from work and the activities we enjoy. Massage therapy provides relief for:
- Muscle stiffness
- Breathing difficulties
- Relief of headaches, eye strain and other tension-related conditions
- Pregnancy difficulties
- Stiff movement
- Back and posture issues
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Movement injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Pinched nerves and headaches
- Sport-related injuries
- Many other conditions
Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are well-trained in how the body functions; they focus on getting muscles back relaxed and in their proper position, which reduces physical pain. When pain has become unbearable, massage is an excellent way to address and lessen it immediately.
