5 Reasons to Be Thankful for Massage Therapy

Thanksgiving is around the corner and, we think about all we are thankful for. If massage therapy is a part of your health and wellness plan, then you already know it has a multitude of benefits. Not only is it a stress-reducer and relaxing, it can help reduce pain and help with a variety of ailments and illnesses. If you haven’t had a massage, you should know that everyone can benefit from therapeutic massage. Even if you aren’t suffering from any chronic pain or injuries- massage is for you.

These are just a few reasons we are thankful for all massage therapy has to offer this Thanksgiving.

  • Healing. Massage therapy offers healing and pain reduction to many different injuries. If you’ve been injured in an accident or sports injury it can increase strength and flexibility to the area. Massage also helps the muscles relax and increases circulation which will speed up the healing.

  • Stress Relief. The stress of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season has many people suffering from anxiety. If you are feeling low energy, exhausted or just feeling stressed all the time then a massage can help you. We all suffer from stress whether it is work related, relationship oriented or other difficulties. Therefore a massage can benefit anyone!

  • Reducing Pain. A high percentage of Americans suffer from back pain. These numbers continue to grow. If you are dealing with back pain or other pains including head or neck pain massage can provide much needed relief.

  • Self Care. Feeling your best as we head into the holiday seasons is important. When to-do lists grow, many people neglect self care and time for relaxing. Making time for a little rest and relaxation will benefit your physical and emotional health.

  • Muscles Relaxed. Tense, cramping muscles can be a real pain. Exercise can cause pain, but sitting can also cause sore muscles in the neck, shoulders and back. Poor posture, carrying extra weight or other habits can also cause strain, tense muscles and pain. Deep tissue massage can help release chronic muscle tension helping you to relax.

Massage therapy has many benefits and can be a helpful method of care for anyone. Adding massage therapy to your self care routine will benefit your physical and emotional health. Whether you are suffering from pain, pregnant, stressed or just want to relax for an hour, we would love to see you on our table for a massage.

My job requires me to lift a few things on an hourly basis, and it has caused me back pain that’s getting worse as time passes. I want to get rid of the pain and this article gave me an idea.

  6. My sister has had a lot of pain in her back after she had minor whiplash in a recent car accident, and I think that she’d really benefit from massage therapy, as you suggest. The muscles in her back are always tight and full of knots around where the injury was, and increasing the flexibility while relaxing the muscles in that area would really improve her situation. I’m sure the stress from work hasn’t helped either, as you said, so I’ll probably be looking for a massage therapist to refer her to soon.
