What are the Benefits of Massage Therapy?
The benefits of massage therapy can be felt in many ways and on many levels.
Absolutely, everyone is unique and receives an individualised treatment plan. This may include any or a combination of massage techniques e.g. myofascial release, trigger point therapy, neuromuscular technique, stretching or exercise therapy, and lifestyle modification. Of course, for long-standing or significant musculoskeletal problems, a number of visits may be required and the therapist will reassess the client’s problem and the rate of progress, often modifying the treatment plan and techniques used along the way.
Massage is successful in treating aliments including neck and back pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, tension headache and countless other problems that our bodies encounter as a result of our daily lives. Back and neck pain are perhaps the most common afflictions one encounters, together with injuries resulting from overuse or activities. Sports and exercise-related injuries are a common reason for people to seek the services of a massage therapist. Most sporting bodies these days recognise the benefits of massage in the prevention and recuperation from sporting activities. Consequently massage therapists are becoming a fixture of many sporting teams and clubs.
