What is a Massage Therapist?
Massage therapists have completed many hours of education which includes a variety of bodywork techniques, extensive anatomy and when massage is and is not appropriate.
Massage and related bodywork techniques can release painful muscle tension, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, and reduce mental fatigue. It is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress. Some new research has emerged regarding the healing power of touch. Benefits such as reducing stress hormones and boosting immune responses are placing a new light on massage.
Massage can relieve many types of muscle tightness. Muscles can become so contracted that they press on nerves to the arms, hands and legs, causing pain or tingling.
Massage can help heal injuries such as tendonitis that develop over time, as well as ligament sprains or muscle strains caused by an accident. Massage reduces inflammation by increasing circulation, which removes waste products and brings nutrition to injured cells. Certain massage techniques can limit scar tissue formation in new injuries and can reduce, or make more pliable, scar tissue around old injuries.
Some conditions have other causes, i.e. pregnancy. Some pregnant women have considerable relief with massage from the postural changes they experience from being pregnant. Massage can influence posture by releasing restricted tissue such as connective tissue called fascia. It also helps to elongate shortened muscles that cause any necessary pain.
Benefits of massage include-
- increases circulation
- reduces toxins built up in the muscles
- increases speed of the healing process
- reduces adhesions (scar tissue)
- relieves hypertonic muscles and chronic pain
- helps regulate sleep patterns
- enhances flexibility
- reduces blood pressure
- reduces mental and physical stress and fatigue
