Enjoy the Benefits of Massage

By Jasmine Fulmore

Have you ever woken up with a crick in your neck or felt excruciating pain in your back throughout the day? Do you suffer from tension headaches or migraines? Is arthritis keeping you from the activities you love? How well are you sleeping at night? All of these issues have one thing in common – they can be helped with therapeutic massage. Massage is beneficial for numerous things, from physical ailments to stress, pain and more. As adults, we could all benefit from massage because we all have stress.

You may be wondering, “How would massages benefit me?” For example, if you are suffering from arthritis, a Swedish style massage and lymphatic drainage techniques can help reduce the swelling and inflammation associated with the pain of arthritis. While massage cannot reverse arthritis, it can slow the progression and make the pain more bearable. If you are suffering with migraines, while there are no known causes, stress and tension certainly fuel their intensity and duration. Massage is beneficial to migraine suffers because it helps lengthen the tissues in the neck and release the tension. While the benefit of massage is not always immediate, getting regular massage services can help decrease the frequency, duration and intensity of migraines and arthritis symptoms.

Massage helps to get the body in balance. When the body gets out of balance, other areas compensate to distribute the additional load. This leads to muscle tension, a buildup of fat deposits, and overworked muscles. By seeking out a professional massage therapist capable of proper massage techniques such as cranial sacral, trigger point, Swedish and reflexology, a person can benefit greatly from massage.
