Benefits of integrating regular Massage Therapy into your health care plan
In its most primitive sense, pain is our body’s warning signal that something needs to be addressed. The longer we ignore these signals the more likely these issues can develop into chronic, long term patterns causing compensations elsewhere in the body. Massage Therapy can play a vital role in your overall healthcare regime. As well as a valuable treatment technique prior to Osteopathic treatment, studies have shown that regular 1-hour massage sessions can help relieve common conditions such as chronic low back and neck pain and Osteoarthritis. There are many benefits of massage. Awareness of these is growing through education and the integration of massage therapy into the Australian health care system. Some of these benefits are well documented and include: Muscle tension and improved range of movement, enhance immunity by encouraging lymph flow, pain relief from a range of musculoskeletal injuries and the break down of scar tissue, improved quality of sleep and concentration. A massage is more than just a luxurious treat. Budgeting your time and money to prioritise regular massage is an investment in your health and well-being. The hour long treatments I offer, include the use of a range of massage and manual therapy techniques including dry needling and cupping. Feel free to contact me to discuss the incorporation of regular massage into your healthcare plan.
