The Wonderful World Of Massage

January 7 2017

The holidays. They’re almost over. And now it’s time to start considering how you will de-stress, decompress and un-deck the holiday woes. You want to kick off the new year energized and refreshed! Did you know massage therapy is more than a simple relaxation treatment?

While you may have heard that a good massage can ease pain and relieve muscle tension in the back and neck, there is more to massage therapy than just that. Studies have shown that through massage therapy techniques, you can minimize anxiety, joint pain, headaches, stress related insomnia, digestive disorders, sports injuries and number of other common ailments! With the growing world of massage therapy, comes many new treatments to assist health professionals in pain management.

From sports massages to hot stone massage, therapists are reinventing the world of muscle therapy. A deep tissue massage will focus on those trigger points that can frequently cause chronic headaches or pinched nerves, while a traditional Swedish massage can give you the gentle, therapeutic form of relaxation you might craving. The use of essential oils and full body wraps are more examples of newer massage trends that will expand traditional tension reduction methods.

However you choose to treat yourself and aid your sore muscles with the gift of massage, be sure you adequately discuss any medications you are taking and any pre-existing health conditions you may have. Massage therapy can cause the stimulation and activation of sluggish blood flow within the body. No matter what type of massage treatment you go for, you should always be comfortable and relaxed during your treatment.
