Massage is an alternative form of therapy often used to relieve pain. The techniques used in massage therapy have been proven to ease pain and help a patient recover from an injury. This treatment may be just what you need to finally relieve that constant nerve or joint pain.
How Effective is Massage Therapy?
Researchers have found that this therapy can ease pain in a variety of ways. For example, it stimulates the circulatory system and thus increases blood flow to stiff and sore muscles and joints. The extra blood relaxes those joints and muscles.
Massage therapy can also help relieve nerve pain. Nerve pain is commonly caused by a pinched nerve, which can be eased through massage. It can also help you relax. This can help relieve anxiety, stress and chronic headaches. To find out about the many benefits of massage therapy, you can contact our office at Knox Wellness.
How Comfortable is Massage Therapy?
Massage is generally very comfortable, especially when performed by a licensed, trained and experienced therapist. Patients with certain conditions should talk to our medical team before opting for massage therapy. Massage is not recommended for people with advanced osteoporosis, skin infections, eczema, open sores, burns, broken bones or deep vein thrombosis.
Depending on your condition, our massage therapists can perform several different types of massages. To ease tension and pain, we offer swedish massage, deep tissue massage and much more.
What Happens During a Massage Therapy Session?
If it’s the patient’s first visit, the therapist will ask them about their medical history and what they hope to get from the massage. They will ask if there are any particularly painful places.The therapist will then administer the massage in a quiet room. Treatment time depends on your personal conditions and goals. You can lie down and relax as our massage therapist works to release tension, toxins and stress from your body. They can also work to stimulate your immune and nervous system to help with digestion and nerve pains.
