Many in the medical profession are quick to prescribe pain medications, which, when properly used can be somewhat helpful. However, there can be dangerous side effects that result in more health problems, and there are many people that are now addicted to these pain medications. Holistic therapies, however, treat the issues in a way that promotes health. Massage therapy is one such solution to problems of pain and injury.
Massage therapy doesn’t just treat pain, though. Take for example, someone that has been in a car accident and has a resulting soft tissue injury. The massage therapist is able to help reduce the pain and inflammation. Something else a therapist will consider is the client’s lymph flow, especially in a tight or injured area. When muscles are tight there can be a block in lymph flow, resulting in further pain and health issues. Massage helps lymph move through the body more readily, promoting overall health. The massage also promotes relaxation and reduces stress the client may be feeling as well.
