What Does Massage Actually Accomplish? Understanding Massage Therapy for Relaxation and Pain Relief
Many people get massages to pamper themselves, de-stress, and relax. There's so much more to it than that.
Massage therapy is a way of manipulating the body’s soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, and tendons) to help improve function and reduce pain. Massage creates a heightened supply oxygen and nutrients to the muscle tissue, improving its ability to move and relax. This will lower pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress.
The following conditions may benefit from massage:
Neck Injuries, Such As Whiplash
Sports and Work-Related Injuries
Overuse/Repetitive Strain Injuries
