The Celebrated Benefits of Therapeutic Massage

With no experience with or little education on the subject, many people feel that the only benefit to a massage is relaxation. While relaxation does play a large part so that the therapy can be effective, there is so much more than just enjoying a back rub. For those with specific concerns, this is a time for relief.

Therapeutic massage characterizes all modalities of massage that help dismiss pain, and reduce or relieve stress. Therapeutic massage may target and help release a particular issue such as, a stiff neck or a frozen shoulder.

Despite the controversy about which issues that a therapeutic massage may help, the following concerns have been proven to be alleviated or even dismissed:

  • Insomnia (stress related)
  • Anxiousness
  • Headaches (intensity and frequency)
  • Indigestion & other digestive disorders
  • Tight joints, sore muscles
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Depression
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Strains or injuries (soft tissue)
  • Sports injuries

Therapeutic massage is calming and tends to help us think more efficiently, as we soak in little stresses that we cannot avoid: school, work, family issues, for example. Therapeutic massage quiets the nervous system, improves our circulation, and aids our digestive system. For those who suffer with cramps and spasms, sciatica or even arthritis, therapeutic massage may help you.

While vertigo is a common ailment that afflicts millions, therapeutic massage might help relieve the pain, headaches, and discomfort from dizziness. Cancer patients receive relief from stress and anxiety when undergoing chemotherapy.

When given the chance, therapeutic massage might help you, or someone you know who truly needs respite from an illness or injury. Rachel Frei, Owner and Massage Therapist, would appreciate the opportunity to welcome you to RLF Wellness Center.
