What health conditions may massage therapy help?

Humans use the healing power of touch instinctively. When we are in pain, we often reach up to rub the sore spot. When someone we care for is upset, we offer a compassionate pat or a gentle embrace. Massage therapists have the training to channel the healing power of touch in ways that benefit your health. Common health conditions our massage therapists help treat are:

  • Migraines
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pain
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Arthritis
  • Poor circulation
  • Joint stiffness
  • And more!

Massage Therapy Benefits

While massage therapy is not a replacement for other healthcare treatments, it can be a valuable component of your wellness plan. It helps you accomplish all of the following:

Relax. A great way to relieve stress, massage can help you unwind and decompress.

Stay limber. By loosening your muscles, massage helps you reduce restrictions in your range of motion and increase your flexibility.

Improve your circulation. Better circulation helps pump more oxygen into your body’s tissues, promoting healing and encouraging wellness.

Relieve headaches. Stress and muscle tension are common headache triggers. Massage reduces both, which means that it can help alleviate your headaches.

Reduce pain. Massage spurs the body to release endorphins, morphine-like chemicals that are natural painkillers.
