Proven Health Benefits
Massage therapy is much more than just a luxury service you find in spas. It’s been clinically proven to provide numerous health benefits. A study conducted at the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine showed a 45-minute Swedish massage to significantly reduced the number of stress hormones in the body.
A metabolic researcher at McMaster University in Canada discovered that massaged legs after an intense workout had a significant difference from un-massaged legs. The treated legs had a 30% increase in genes that build mitochondria. (Mitochondria is responsible for converting cells’ food into energy). The researchers also found a reduction in a protein complex that promotes inflammation.
Combining Massage & Physical Therapy
Depending on the reason for your treatment, at times you may experience some discomfort before, during, or after physical therapy. This discomfort is something you may need to work through in order to bring back balance, restore your range of motion, heal from an injury, or reestablish proper movement patterns.
By incorporating massage into your physical therapy treatments, you may experience a reduction in pain and quicker recovery times. You may also experience an increase in peace of mind and reduced anxiety and stress.
Deep tissue massage is a type of bodywork often combined with physical therapy. It targets the deeper layers of the muscle as well as tendons and fascia. Deep tissue has also been shown to increase circulation and bring healing nutrients to muscles as well as reduce blood pressure.
Sports massage can help to enhance performance, increase range of motion, reduce soreness, and assist with both injury prevention and post-injury healing. It’s geared towards people who have a physically demanding lifestyle or hobby. Your therapist will take into consideration the impact certain activities have on your joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
