What Is Massage Therapy and How Does It Help?
Massage is an ancient heal-promoting practice from China that uses the hands and variety of different techniques to resolve soft tissue injuries and improve overall health. Massage therapists used a number of specific motions and pressures to affected areas. The therapist may use long strokes, kneading, rocking, tapping or periods of pressure to the area to stimulate blood flow and nerve function. Massage to soft tissue injuries helps to relax muscles and improve blood circulation to the area, which then carries nutrition and healing natural body chemicals to the injury to encourage faster healing.
Conditions Massage Therapy Can Relieve
Research on massage therapy is finding that the techniques can be used to alleviate a number of medical conditions. Traditionally, it has used to help back and neck pain, but it can also have a beneficial effect on such wide-ranging conditions as anxiety, depression, fatigue, headaches, muscle sprains and even on cancer pain. Evidence also finds it can be helpful for diabetes, high blood pressure and sleep disorders. For athletes, massage therapy can hasten healing of the tiny small tears that occur during play. These findings suggest massage therapy can be used to provide increased relief from many conditions that affect general health and well-being.
