According to the National Center for Health Statistics, two out of five Americans live with pain every day. For some, this pain is mild and can be handled with some rest. For others, the pain is acute or chronic and can range in severity from mild to excruciating. Massage therapy has been proven effective in managing pain, alongside a doctor-prescribed pain management plan.
Therapeutic massage is an area of continuous research, and the results are promising. For those who suffer from hand pain in particular, as a result of carpal tunnel or injury, massages can reduce the frequency and intensity of the pain. For people attempting to manage their chronic conditions, massage therapy is a viable option.
Clinical massage therapy can help improve circulation in your body. Massage directs oxygen-rich blood to different parts of the body, which can promote better circulation, which in turn supports muscle function and organ health.
Massages for anxiety? You heard it right. Massages promote relaxation in the mind and body, which in turn can help manage your anxiety. Clinical massage therapy is so effective in treating anxiety that it is even recommended at many hospitals as a vital component in an anxiety treatment plan.
Clinical massage therapy is a versatile, powerful, non-pharmaceutical tool for improving your life; whether that’s managing a chronic condition or even just unwinding after a long day. Interested in massage? Get in touch with Everything Zen today.
