Many injuries, accidents, repetitive actions on the job and tension from everyday stress can cause problems which will cause pain, headaches, decrease range of motion, lower your resistance to illnesses, increase emotional stress and anxiety and compromise your lifestyle.
Massage will relieve many types of muscle pain especially the back and neck area where most of us store tension. Muscles can become so contracted that they press on nerves to the arms, hands and legs, causing pain, tingling and numbness.
Massage therapy is safe and effective if used for stress management and it is also widely used to help clients obtain relief from many specific problems, including the following:
post injury rehabilitation
neck and shoulder tension
low back pain
digestive/lower bowel problems
pseudo-sciatica (leg aches)
Massage is not a substitute for medical care but it may reduce or eliminate the need for medication or surgery.
There are so many more benefits of massage and if you've never had a massage before - now is definitely the time to get one!
