Everyone loves a good massage. It’s relaxing and soothing, the perfect way to end a stressful week at work or a long and tiring day. However, more than the relaxation and soothing effects it has, it also offers a lot of health benefits, reports the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health or NCCIH. Here are some of those benefits.
A lot of evidence suggests that chiropractic therapy is an effective way to manage back pain. That’s why chiropractors remain the go-to choice for people who suffer from chronic back pain. Therapy that uses kneading and pulling techniques is also used to ease the pain for patients who suffer from neck pain.
Aid for Cancer Treatment
Short term therapy has been known to lead to positive effects in people with cancer. Since it helps patients relax and thus feel great, it also helps improve their mood and response to pain. It’s also been known to ease the effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment on patients.
While consistent and continued therapy doesn’t eliminate depression, it does help reduce feelings of depression. Since it makes people better, the treatment helps patients cope with depression better.
Reduce Symptoms of Disease
In cases where patients suffer from Fibromyalgia, therapy that involves kneading the muscles has been known to help treat the fatigue and pain along with the other symptoms of the disease.
Massage therapy also has therapeutic benefits on pre-term infants, helping them gain weight faster.
Less Risks With Experts
All in all, there are all great reasons to go for a session right now. However, before you go to any sort of therapy for pain relief, make sure you consult your doctor first. That way, you can be sure you’re not putting yourself in harm’s way. This is especially important if you’ve got an existing condition you need to keep an eye on.
Unlike surgery, therapy is a non-invasive pain relief system.
