Massage & Wellness

Have you ever considered massage therapy as part of your wellness routine?  What if I told you massage therapy could provide the following:  pain relief; reduction in stress; better sleep; and, lower blood pressure.  Just to name a few benefits.

Here are some findings:
American Massage Therapy Association
Specific to osteoarthritis in the knee, a research study funded by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) found that a 60-minute “dose” of Swedish massage therapy performed once a week for pain was both optimal and practical.5
Two recent clinical studies report that patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy in their feet can significantly benefit from foot massage. Each study relied on a different massage technique, although both shared similarly positive conclusions.
Though limited, there have been a few studies that point to a positive connection between massage and migraine relief.

Note: Before your insurance will pay for the massage, you must provide proof from your primary health care physician that it is a medically necessary procedure. Talk to your doctor and explain why you’d like massage therapy to be part of your treatment. Use this link for additional information. Source: https://www.livestrong.com

To make an informed decision about whether a deep tissue massage is right for you, you must know all the facts. Although you may not experience any of these from a massage therapy, it’s always important to know the risks associated with treatments.
