Massage therapy is typically associated with relaxation, but some don’t realize that it has many benefits extending beyond that. Massage therapy can be used in a therapeutic setting to aid in the body’s natural healing process. At Chiropractic Whole Health, we use massage therapy as an important part of total care for many patients.
Massage therapy has many benefits, including:
Improves circulation and nourishment of cells
Facilitates improved elimination of cell waste
Relieves aches and pains caused by muscle tension
Releases compressed nerves (can help with symptoms of sciatica and carpal tunnel)
Improves energy and range of motion
Speeds healing time for damaged muscles or ligaments
Improved circulation is one of the most important benefits. With improved circulation, cells can absorb nutrients and oxygen more effectively. This can help improve symptoms associated with chronic inflammation. Additionally, massage therapy triggers a relaxation response that can reduce mental and physical stress while also improving immune function.
