Massage Therapy – it is more than just a nice massage

by

The power of massage is more than you may realize – often clients seek massage therapy to help alleviate and combat the pain they suffer on a daily basis from conditions like arthritis, chronic back pain or even cancer.  A method to soothe away pain proves substantial for clients suffering on a daily basis and will help rejuvenate their exhausted bodies. Massage therapy allows the clients a chance to relax and escape into a world without pain or worries of the future. Massage can be an effective complementary therapy and many health care professionals recognize massage as a useful, noninvasive addition to standard medical treatment.


In battles like cancer, spirit can prove just as important as medicine for healing. Studies and research suggest massage can decrease stress, anxiety and depression. It is important for someone with a serious condition such as cancer to check with their doctors before adding massage to their treatment plan.  It is also suggested to let your massage therapist know any concerns or conditions you may have before a massage is performed and provide a doctor's note prior to treatment.
