Massage Therapy for Pain and Stress Relief

Therapeutic Massage
Deep tissue therapy uses various techniques to relieve muscle spasms and stress, increase circulation of blood and lymph, increase muscle and skin tone, detoxify tissues and promote well-being. Essential oils are used to enhance therapeutic effectiveness.

Massage is generally considered part of integrative medicine. Medical centers are offering it more and more as a treatment along with standard treatment. It may be used for a wide range of medical conditions, including:

  • Stress Reduction
  • Relief from Pain and Muscle Tension
  • Increased Relaxation
  • Improved Immune Function

At Mayo Clinic, medical professionals even recommend massage therapy to help people cope with the pain and stress brought on by conditions like cancer, heart disease, stomach problems and fibromyalgia. See more.
