Chronic Pain Treatment
Chronic Pain Management
Massage can assist in reducing chronic pain. Chronic pain is defined as persistent discomfort that lasts for 12 weeks or more. There are numerous causes of chronic pain. Injury or chronic sickness are the most frequent causes of persistent pain. The goal of a massage is to interrupt the pain cycle to lessen and relieve the pain.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Benefits of regular Massage Therapy
One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing.
Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Some of the physical benefits of massage therapy include:
Lower stress. The long-term effects of stress can take emotional and physical tolls.
Increase immune function.
Boost mental health and wellness.
Improve physical fitness.
Reduced muscle tension
Stimulation of the lymphatic system
Increased joint mobility and flexibility
