Massage and Pain

Pain plays a part in nearly all of our lives at some point.  Ultimately, pain is one of the ways our body can speak to us. “Hello, can you hear me? Something is wrong and I need your attention?” Sometimes the attention can be as simple as resting an overworked muscle but oftentimes the messages have been ignored or worked around for so long that other means of treatment are necessary.

I see many clients suffering with pain and symptoms that keep them from doing their favorite activities. Regardless of it being chronic pain that set in years ago or acute pain from a weekend event, discomfort can cause a downward spiral leading to sleeplessness, anxiety, depression and many other related symptoms.

While the body is known for its healing power, sometimes a little assistance can go a long way in breaking that pain cycle. Don't give into the pain, instead, find what works for you and make a commitment to care for yourself each and everyday!

Massage and Stress Relief

Stress is a fact of life and comes to each of us in various forms. While some levels of stress are normal by today’s standards, we can all experience stress overload. It important to tune in and recognize that things like headaches, insomnia, anxiety, moodiness, agitation, frequent illness and depression are symptomatic of your bodies stress response.

Continued research shows that therapeutic massage can help teach you to relax and better cope with stress and its affects. Regular massage not only offers a stress break but can decrease your muscle tension and induce a calm state of mind allowing you to stay more relaxed even when stressors arise. Budgeting time and money for massage on a monthly basis is a great way to combat stress and invest in your daily health.

Massage and Neurological Health

While neurological disorders are a great threat to many suffers, research has shown decreased symptoms for many patients who receive regular massage.  Regardless of the terms used to explain massage such as pampering, rejuvenating or therapeutic, massage therapy can be a strong ally in your regular health care practice to manage headaches, migraines, carpel tunnel, sleep disturbances and more. Simply put, massage can help increase the circulation, release nerve entrapment and reduce pain and numbness associated with many neurological disorders.

For most sufferers,  fibromyalgia is a lifelong condition so treatment is often about managing the symptoms. Because the sufferer can be hypersensitive, it is best to use a variety of gentle massage techniques to avoid over stimulation.  

Studies indicate that massage therapy is a beneficial treatment for many fibromyalgia sufferers to help reduce pain, increase flexibility, improve sleep and decrease stress and depression associated with the syndrome.  Massage is used to calm and relax the client and aid in easy muscle flushing over several sessions. If you or someone you know suffers from this condition, massage may be a non invasive way to help manage the symptoms.

Massage and Digestive Health

Digestive disorders can be uncomfortable and sometimes very painful. Oftentimes, releasing abdominal tension and relieving stress can help relieve some of the symptoms associated with many digestive disorders. Gentle massage on the abdomen can help to clear congestion and adhesions, as well as, reduce cramping, bloating, gas and constipation. It may also be appropriate to incorporate a castor oil pack into your massage session. The pack is placed directly on the abdomen and will help to increase circulation and lymph movement, stimulate the liver, relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Be sure to share all of your symptoms with your massage therapist so that that two of you can develop a plan appropriate to your individual digestive health needs.
