From a young age, we’re all taught to ‘rub it better’ when we fall over, and it’s not all for show. Rubbing (or massaging) stimulates the production of endorphins – perfectly natural pain-killing agents produced by the human body.
We all have the ability to heal with our hands and, to some extent, massage therapy can help mitigate the effects of very many common ailments. Our hands tell us how much physical tension there is in a muscle group, and from there starts the diagnostic process. A trained massage therapist can discover the congested areas of muscles and disperse the obstruction, leaving everything to function properly.
Benefits of massage therapy
Remedial massage therapy is the most beneficial of the systems as it can ease, and sometimes entirely alleviate, a range of problems:
- Circulatory problems (blood flow)
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
- Back problems
- Sports and mechanical injuries
- Headaches and migraines
- Arthritic pain
By using a variety of techniques, massage therapy is able to remove most trauma that occurs in the muscular skeleton. This allows the bodily fluids to reach the (un-obstructed) extremities of the body.
