Massage can be a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health and well-being.
Therapeutic Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of therapeutical massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of therapeutic massage, some studies have found therapeutic massage may also be helpful for:
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Joint pain (Pain management)
Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy therapeutic massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
