Therapeutic Effects of Massage
RH Mar 25, 2011
Incorporating Therapeutic Massage into a balanced health and wellness program can be beneficial for overall health. One of the oldest healing arts, massage dates back to B.C. times in the Orient. Today, Therapeutic Massage is now accepted as part of many physical rehabilitation programs worldwide for symptoms as diverse as Arthritis, Diabetes, and Insomnia as well as many more.
The effects and benefits of Therapeutic Massage are both physical and emotional. Through the physical contact of Therapeutic Massage, clients have experienced increased joint flexibility, stretching weak or tightened muscles, increased circulation through muscle activity and reduced pain. Emotional effects and benefits of massage have been seen through the relaxation of the entire body; reducing stress, reducing blood pressure, relief of anxiety and depression as well as the release of vital endorphins into the body.
The physical and emotional effects of massage work together to help influence a faster recovery from ailments and discomfort by targeting not one particular area, but the overall body as it works together as a whole.
