What conditions may be helped by Massage Therapy?

An increasing number of research studies show massage therapy reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles and improves range of motion. It also leads to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.

People with the following conditions have reported that therapeutic massage has lessened or relieved many of their symptoms:

  • Myofascial pain
  • Chronic and acute pain
  • Sports injuries (including pulled or strained muscles and ligaments)
  • Stress Headache
  • Arthritis
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Circulatory problems
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction

Though the effects of a single session may be temporary, a well-spaced series of massage therapy sessions can actually reverse chronic muscle spasm, thereby breaking the pain cycle.
