What You Should Know About Massage Therapy
Here at Ideal Spine Health, our massage therapist specializes in working with those suffering from chronic pain. We also treat those who are at a loss for what to do next to possibly improve their health. Our therapist uses a technique that uses a slower, effective pace so that the patient’s nervous system can react properly to the massage therapy.
Massage therapy is a crucial element to our chiropractic rehabilitation program. It can improve your health in many ways. It is often used to ease lower back pain and improve range of motion and because of this, it can help decrease some medication usage.
Massage therapy is also prone to improving the immune system by stimulating lymph flow. Lymph is a fluid that contains white blood cells, which fight infection, and carries them throughout the body. By stimulating lymph flow, the body works better to get rid of toxins, waste, and other various unwanted materials that could be harming your body.
For athletes, massage therapy can be very beneficial as it helps stretch both weak and tight muscles. This leads to better athletic recovery from strenuous workouts. During treatment, massage therapy causes the body to release endorphins or amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkillers. Also, massage therapy can improve joint flexibility allowing you to move more efficiently and effectively. To the average athlete, massage therapy can provide great assistance to both improvement and recovery.
Depression and anxiety have been shown to decrease with massage therapy treatment. Maneuvering the tissue can lower the levels of the stress hormone cortisol in the body. Cortisol is bad for the body as it increases blood pressure and blood sugar levels and also suppresses the immune system. Massage therapy increases the release of serotonin and dopamine, which are neurotransmitters that help reduce depression.
Massage therapy can result in greatly improved health as it decreases anxiety, improves the body’s movement, and relieves the body of pain.
