The last week has been a stressful one. For many it continues to be a difficult time waiting in the dark, trying to put their homes and lives back together from the wrath of Sandy. Our bodies are usually the ones that start to feel the effects of stress. Come and find relief with massage therapy or gift a massage to someone who you know could use one right now.
Did you know that massage is a very effective technique for controlling pain in a number of ways.
- Massage stimulants the release of endorphins, recent studies show that endorphins enhance the immune system, relieve pain, reduce stress, and even help with the aging process.
- Massage relieves muscle tension, spasm and stiffness, all of which contribute to pain. Tense muscles are usually deprived of oxygen, because the tightness reduces blood circulation to that area. Massage improves blood circulation and brings much-needed oxygen and other forms of nourishment. The muscle can then relax, and pain decreases.
- Massage confuses the body’s pain signal pathways to the brain before it can be perceived as pain.
- Massage can help pain originating from muscle tension causing head, neck, back and shoulder pain. The release of tightness and tension in muscles is one goal and effect of a good massage. Massage can also relieve pain associated with arthritis, injuries and recent surgeries!!
