One of the many services we offer here at Active Integrative Medicine is massage therapy. While this therapy is better-known than it used to be, many people are still unaware of the many benefits that it can provide. In this article, our team will go over a few of the benefits of massage therapy to help encourage you to give it a try.
• Pain Relief. Massage therapy can provide much-needed pain relief for sore muscles. Whether you have suffered an injury or simply carry a lot of stress in your body, our experienced massage therapists can help provide the relief you have been looking for. We use a variety of techniques, including manual pressure, to ease muscle tension, getting rid of painful knots and allowing the muscle fibers to move freely once more.
• Stress Relief. Another benefit of massage therapy is that it has been shown to reduce stress levels and promote relaxation. Stress has a variety of negative effects on physical and mental health, including increasing the blood pressure and interfering with restful sleep, so taking steps to reduce the amount of stress you are under will help you stay healthier overall.
• Injury Recovery. A third benefits of massage therapy is that it can help you recover from injuries faster and more completely. Our experienced therapists know how to work with your injury to promote healing and improve your range of motion without causing you more pain. Our techniques will improve circulation to the site of the injury, promoting cell reconstruction and recovery.
