This is what the Mayo Clinic has to say about massage.
“Brush aside any thoughts that massage is only a feel-good way to indulge or pamper yourself. To the contrary, massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being, whether you have a specific health condition or are just looking for another stress reliever.”
Though massage is still considered an alternative or complementary treatment, it is being used along with traditional approaches to treat many common ailments today.
Studies have proven that massage can alleviate stress, pain and muscle tension.
Additional research is needed but studies may have shown that massage can be helpful for the following complaints:
· Digestive disorders
· Insomnia related to stress
· Myofascial pain syndrome
· Paresthesias and nerve pain
· Soft tissue strains or injuries
· Sports injuries
· Temporomandibular joint pain
In addition to the clinical aspects of massage, there are social benefits as well. A sense of connection, care and empowerment can form from regular sessions with your massage therapist.
