Sherwood Park residents are no stranger to the aches and pains of hard work. Professional athletes know the benefit of regular deep tissue massage, but when it comes to more everyday pains, it seems like few people know how much deep muscle relief a remedial massage can bring to various physical and mental health problems.
We at Body Tech Therapeutic Massage Inc. have compiled this list of some of the surprising benefits of massage that you can take advantage of. Our massage service goes above and beyond to address many of these common health issues in Sherwood Park.
Help Relieve Chronic Pain
Whether you have a primary chronic pain disorder or your aches and pains are a symptom or side effect, regular massages can provide lasting relief to chronic disease sufferers.
Deep tissue massage at Body Tech Therapeutic Massage Inc. is Sherwood Park’s best bet for trigger point massage. Trigger points are a major cause of chronic muscle pain, and we use a variety of techniques to help sufferers get relief from these irritating health issues.
Feeling physical relief from the aches and pains of chronic illness can help relieve the body’s burden from other symptoms of that illness. While remedial massage may not be a cure-all, we’ve been helping patients manage their chronic health pains for years, and can do the same for you.
Relieve Stress, Anxiety and Depression
While everyone experiences stress to some degree, chronic and prolonged stress or anxiety and depression are more serious mental health issues that massage can surprisingly bring relief to. All three of these issues can cause further health problems in the body if they are not attended to.
While the mechanisms are still unknown, science is discovering more and more about the connection between brain and body every year. And it’s been proven that deep muscle relief through massage relieves the symptoms of anxiety and depression and reduces stress.
Not only is massage good for all three of these conditions, but it also reduces the stress hormone cortisol, leading to health improvements throughout the body.
Lower Blood Pressure
For patients experiencing high blood pressure, weekly massages have been shown to help temporarily lower blood pressure levels. This can provide a wealth of benefits especially to the body’s heart health and can also reduce the likelihood of headaches or burst blood vessels.
Prevent Risk of Future Injuries
Many of us don’t address our health problems until they become too large to ignore. While it might be tempting to let a sports or exercise injury heal on its own, regular sports or remedial massage can ensure that your muscles heal in the way they are meant to. This addresses future sprains before they become a problem.
