Massage Therapy…it’s not just an indulgence!

Feeling the stress?  Little makes one feel as good as a relaxing massage.  It’s a time when you can turn off and escape the stresses of everyday life. And for many, it’s considered to be an indulgence rather than a necessity.

But did you know that massage therapy has health benefits?

Massage is actually considered to be part of a complementary and alternative medicine program. And it’s being offered more often along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.

Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:

  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Nerve pain
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Joint pain
