6 benefits of massage therapy

If you’re suffering from acute, chronic, or referred pain, massage therapy can help. The many benefits of medical massage therapy include:

1. Decreased muscle stiffness, pain, and soreness

Massage therapy can help work out knots and relax tight muscles that cause you pain and limit your mobility.

2. Decreased joint inflammation and improved flexibility

If pain is originating from or being referred to your joints, the right kind of massage can help loosen and limber your body so you can move more easily.

3. Improved circulation and immune response

Massage can help your lymphatic system flush itself, reducing retained fluids and improving blood circulation for better overall health and optimized immune response.

4. Better quality of sleep

If pain and stiffness are keeping you awake at night, regular massage therapy could be the answer to relieving your discomfort so you can rest.

5. Quicker recovery after workouts

Sports massages are designed specifically for athletes, targeting the muscles stressed by their type of sport or activity for faster recovery.

6. Help for chronic pain or illness

If you suffer from chronic pain due to an injury or have a chronic illness that causes pain, like fibromyalgia, regular massage can help reduce symptoms and help you live a more active life.
