Medical Massage Therapy Is A Scientifically Based Manual Therapy System That Finds And Treats The Cause Of Your Pain

Over the years there has been a large amount of scientific research supporting the beneficial physiological effects of massage therapy including neuromuscular massage therapy. They include but are not limited to:

  • Increases circulation and allows the body to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to tissues and vital organs.
  • Stimulates the lymph system, the body's to natural defense against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the number of cells that fight cancer.
  • Relaxes and softening injured, overused and tight muscles.
  • Reduces muscle spasms and muscle cramps.
  • Increases and restores joint motion and joint flexibility.
  • Reduces recovery time from strenuous athletic workouts while eliminating "next-day" workout pains.
  • Releases endorphins, the body's natural painkiller. For this physiological reason medical massage is being included into treatment plans for chronic pain, acute injury and recovery from surgery.
  • Reduces post-surgery adhesions, scarring and swelling.
  • Improves joint motion and flexibility by stretching and stimulating weakened and tight muscles while lengthening shortened muscles.

How Massage Therapy Improves Recovery from Surgeries and Illness

  • Massage stimulates the lymph system, the body's natural defense, against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.
  • Massage releases endorphins, the body's natural painkiller. For this reason, massage is being incorporated into treatment for chronic illness, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain.
  • Medical Massage reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema and reduces and realigns scar tissue after healing has occurred.
  • Medical Massage improves range of motion and decreasing discomfort for patients with low back pain.
  • Massage contributes to shorter labor and reduced tearing for expectant mothers, as well as lessening the need for medication minimizing depression and anxiety, and shortening hospital stays.

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy has Profound Effects

In response to medical massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body, with profound effects. Research shows that with massage:
  • Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain.
  • Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow.
  • Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety.
  • High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.
  • Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping.
  • Preterm infants have improved weight gain.
Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals arc also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat posts or pain patients as part of the recovery process. If you are under the care of a physician ask about the benefits for you to incorporate massage therapy into the treatment of your medical condition.
