Theraputic Benefits Of Massage Therapy For Common Ailments

Relaxation Massage therapy
Massage therapy describes a variety of techniques and manual manipulations of the body in which touch, kneading, and pressure are applied to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and fascia. Application of heat and essential oils are also common to produce a greater effect following a massage therapy session—such as increased stress relief, lowered anxiety, reduced inflammation, minimized pain, etc.

Massage is an ancient healing therapy commonly used for its therapeutic effect on disease and common ailments. Used globally for centuries, and now even modern research has shown a connection between massage and the improvement or relief of symptoms and ailments related to the following:

Anxiety

Stress

Depression

Back Pain

Cancer

Inflammation

Insomnia

Fibromyalgia

Chronic Pain

Chronic Diseases

High Blood Pressure

Joint and Muscle Injuries

In addition to providing relief for a variety of ailments, massage therapy (especially routine massage therapy sessions) can also provide additional benefits to the mind and body. One of the most prominent effects of massage therapy felt by nearly all clients is the immediate feeling of relaxation and calmness. Massage therapy elicits an endorphin response, the neurotransmitters that produce the feeling and sense of well-being. At their release, the levels of stress related hormones like cortisol, adrenaline, and norepinephrine are reduced. In turn, these lowered stress hormones positively impact the body’s immune system as stress hormones actively impair the functioning of the immune system.
Other physical benefits of massage therapy include:

Improved Posture

Increased Flexibility

Reduced Muscle Stiffness

Improved Circulation

Stimulation of Lymphatic System

Heightened Mental Alertness

Improved Skin Tone
