Massage Therapy Health Benefits

Who doesn’t enjoy a good massage? They’re relaxing, rejuvenating and can be therapeutic, but did you know there are also many massage therapy health benefits?

What is Massage Therapy?

Once considered an alternative or fringe approach, it’s now becoming much more mainstream. More importantly, now that massage therapy is considered a mainstream treatment option, many insurance companies provide coverage for treatment sessions. This form of therapy involves hands-on techniques to increase circulation, relieve tension, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation throughout the entire body, as well as, many other benefits. The body’s soft tissue areas include the muscles, tendons and connective tissue. If someone is tense and in need of a release, or they have been injured and have extensive muscle and/or nerve tissue damage, massage therapy might be worth exploring.

Massage Therapy Health Benefits

When most people think about getting a massage it is to relieve stress, muscle tension or minor aches and pains. Massage therapy can help with those and so much more. The Mayo Clinic lists massage therapy health benefits if you suffer from: anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, headaches, insomnia related to stress, myofascial pain syndrome, soft tissue strains or injuries, sports injuries and temporomandibular joint pain.

Chiropractic Care and Massage Therapy

Chiropractic care and massage therapy can actually work in concert. Here’s how:

Long-standing spinal problems are accompanied by ingrained muscle patterns. Muscle spasms and scar tissue are often involved. By augmenting your chiropractic care with massage therapy, these muscle and soft tissue problems can be addressed. This coupling of techniques can not only help your adjustments be more effective and last longer but speed up your overall recovery process.
