Benefits of Massage Therapy
Why should you try massage therapy? Victoria residents will find that massage therapy reduces anxiety, blood pressure, heart rate, depression, and pain. In addition, recent studies suggest that massage therapy may benefit certain conditions, such chronic low-back pain.
What benefits does massage therapy have?
Massage therapy helps a variety of conditions. Most people primarily think of the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. Massage can also benefit patients managing chronic pain, stress management and lymphatic drainage. Seeing a massage therapist regularly helps to combat the chronic postures and stresses we put in our bodies through work or play. It helps to keep on top of things before any one part of the body becomes really sore.
How many appointments of massage therapy do you need before you are considered treated?
It really depends on the underlying condition or injury. Some injuries such as a pulled muscle or a knot in the back take as few as 2 or 3 treatments to treat effectively. Other conditions require significantly more treatments before the symptoms have resolved themselves completely. The goal of treatment planning with massage is to schedule treatments quite frequently at first to adequately relieve symptoms between treatments. As the body heals, the frequency of treatments will be spread out slowly until an optimal maintenance frequency is reached. Most people find a comfortable maintenance frequency of 2 to 6 weeks.
Is there anyone who cannot have massage therapy (any specific injury or health condition?)
Everyone can benefit from massage no matter what condition they may have. We use a variety of techniques and pressures to ensure a treatment is both effective and enjoyable. We customize our treatment to suit the needs of our patients. Broken or fragile skin poses a difficulty for both therapist and patient but we can always work around that area if need be.
