The benefits of massage continued... While finding a reason to treat yourself to a massage may be easy, finding the time to do so may be more challenging. Taking time to take care of your health is frequently difficult to prioritize — keep in mind that one-to-two hours of massage can possibly make everything you do less stressful and less painful, allowing you to be more productive with the rest of your day! 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 massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. Enjoying massage therapy can address a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension. Massage may additionally offer certain benefits in treating high blood pressure, lower back pain, post-operative care, arthritis and depression. Even if you don’t have a specific health issue, massage therapy can provide many benefits, such as: Increased circulation Stimulation of the lymph system, the body's natural defence against toxic invaders Release of endorphins, the body's natural painkiller Improved range of motion and decreased discomfort associated with lower back pain Relaxation of injured and overused muscles Reduced muscle spasms and cramping Increased joint flexibility Help recover from strenuous workouts Pain relief from migraines Release of toxins in the body Deep relaxation Anxiety Digestive disorders Fibromyalgia Headaches Insomnia related to stress Myofascial pain syndrome Soft tissue strains or injuries Sports injuries Temporomandibular joint pain Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection. Despite its benefits, massage isn't meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you're trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have. Risks of massage: Most people can benefit from massage. However, massage may not be appropriate if you have: Bleeding disorders or take blood-thinning medication Burns or healing wounds Deep vein thrombosis Fractures Severe osteoporosis Severe thrombocytopenia Discuss the pros and cons of massage with your doctor, especially if you are pregnant or you have cancer or unexplained pain. Some forms of massage can leave you feeling a bit sore the next day. But massage shouldn't ordinarily be painful or uncomfortable. If any part of your massage doesn't feel right or is painful, speak up right away.
