The art of massage has existed for thousands of years, and the health benefits are difficult to dispute. Not only can massage relieve tension and stress, but it may also diminish back pain, headache, fatigue, and depression. Let’s address how massage can benefit your mental and physical health.
The benefits of massage
Tranquil Waters Med Spa offers a variety of massage options. From deep tissue to pre-natal massage, we have specific massage services that cater to your needs. The following are ways that massage can help heal and soothe.
- Back pain: Studies continue to demonstrate the positive impact that massage therapy has on back pain. In a study from 2003, results showed that massage was more effective than acupuncture or spinal modification for chronic lower back pain. In fact, massage decreased the need for painkillers by 36%!
- A headache: Massage has been shown to decrease the number of migraines and enhance sleep.
- Osteoarthritis: Research reveals that those suffering from knee osteoarthritis felt less stiffness and pain after receiving Swedish massage one to two times per week.
- Overall wellness: Massage can be an excellent complement to Western medicine practices. It has been shown to decrease pain, swelling, fatigue, nausea, depression, and other ailments.
