Why get a massage?

More and more studies indicate there are a number of benefits from getting a massage.  It can improve injury repair time, mental health and attitude, and performance at all levels.  A typical massage will stretch and loosen muscles and connective tissue, improving blood and lymph flow throughout the body. According to recent research studies massage therapy has been shown to be effective in:
 
  • Soothing chronic back pain better than any other
    complementary therapies

  • Decreasing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Reducing anxiety and lowering blood pressure
    in 
    stroke patients

  • Easing post-operative pain

  • Reducing headache frequency

  • Easing alcohol withdrawal symptoms

 

Massage therapy has also been the focus of studies on improvements in symptoms of cancer patients.  Following massage therapy, 50% of surveyed cancer patients reported a reduction in symptoms of pain, fatigue, stress, anxiety, nausea, and depression.
