Massage Therapy Reviews


Massage therapy does work for people who are in pain. There are several scientific studies that support the claims. The analgesic effects of massage therapy are ideal for patients who are experiencing low back pain, shoulder pain and headache pain.

There are modest massage therapy reviews proving that such treatment can offer relief to patients with fibromyalgia, neck pain, chronic pain and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Massage Therapy Reviews

What is a massage therapy?

It is a manipulation of soft-tissue done by a trained therapist. In addition to hands-on treatment, therapists may also use mechanical devices to facilitate the treatment.

Muscle spasm can be very painful to touch. It is the result of the lack of proper blood flow in the muscles because of muscle spasm. Because it is not receiving sufficient amount of blood, the muscle is also not receiving enough oxygen to function properly. When muscles lack oxygen, they cause to produce lactic acid that makes you feel sore after a physical activity.

Upon application of massage therapy, the muscle will be in its relaxed state again. The lactic acid produced will be released and the muscle will start receiving sufficient blood and enough oxygen.

In various massage therapy reviews, you will find that it is being used as an adjunctive therapy in various wellness clinics. It is rarely used as a main treatment of chronic pain. This will prepare you for other medical or drug-free interventions to relieve your symptoms.

Massage, per se, relieves any discomfort you are feeling as it stimulates the release of endorphins, which are substances that offer a morphine-like result. Tension, spasm and stiffness contribute to pain. By providing your body with deep massage therapy, you will be relieved from whatever pain you are feeling, either as a result of accident or injury.

Combine with other therapies

Massage therapy, as previously mentioned, should be used in combination with other treatments, like physical therapy and chiropractic. Massage therapists work hand in hand with physical therapists and chiropractors to provide patients with overall evaluation and treatment.

Pain as caused by injury or medical condition must be addressed immediately to avoid it to get worse or cause deeper problems. Taking the time to consult a massage therapist is best for your body and your overall health.

After every massage therapy session, you will feel a lot better. You will have a feeling of rejuvenation and revitalization. The unique massage therapy offered by Back to Wellness will give you something that you cannot find elsewhere. To learn more about it, click here:
