What Are The Benefits Of Massage Therapy?
Everybody knows massage feels good… Time and studies have shown the true health benefits of massage.
Massage is very effective in the relief of pain from aching and stiff muscles, whether due to a particular health problem or from chronic stress. Massage helps increase body motion, promotes muscle relaxation and relieves spasms and cramps. Chronic muscular pain improves dramatically when muscles are stretched and completely relaxed.
Massage gets you moving! Therapeutic massage stretches tight muscles and unlocks restrictions, restoring motion to the body, so your body can move naturally, feel good and be well.
The pain cycle starts when injury, chronic poor posture or emotional stress causes pain. The body moves differently, causing muscles and other soft tissues to adapt. Massage helps break the pain cycle by physically stretching and relaxing spasm (muscles shortened from injury or long term inactivity) and trigger points (the swollen, tender areas that may refer pain to other parts of the body).
Also, the kneading of therapeutic massage relieves soft tissue inflammation caused either by traumatic injury or chronic pain. When inflammation and swelling are reduced, pain subsides and motion returns. Repetitive strain injuries (i.e. carpal tunnel syndrome) are prevented and sports performance improved when muscular tension is relieved and postural balance is restored.
Massage increases blood circulation and lymphatic circulation, which helps remove waste and toxins from muscles.
Massage provides emotional benefits including decreased anxiety, tension and fatigue, and an enhanced sense of well being.
What To Expect When Receiving Your First Massage
Plan to arrive a few minutes before your first scheduled appointment in order to fill out a client intake form. Your massage therapist will talk to you about your specific needs and expectations. Be sure to ask what types of massage are offered and any other questions you may have.
The massage table will be prepared with fresh sheets in a warm, comfortable room with soft lighting. Relaxing music will be playing during your massage. The music and lighting help put you at ease, and prepare you for a soothing and enjoyable treatment. A face cradle is provided so you can lie comfortably when on your stomach.
The therapist will uncover only the part of the body being massaged, so you never feel exposed. Professional draping techniques are used with each part of the body being uncovered, massaged and returned to its original position. You're invited to give feedback during your massage, to remark on pressure, or make a request.
