When you think about getting a massage your first thought is it is a way to help you relax and relieve stress. A gentle, soothing massage has been known to reduce stress, relieve muscle aches, improve your sleep and improve your mood.
However a massage goes way beyond relaxation. A therapeutic massage might help you with more serious medical issues by targeting problem areas. This therapeutic type of massage involves more focused work on your body’s soft tissue — the muscles, tendons and ligaments that move and support your body.
Your physician or physical therapist might recommend that you receive a therapeutic massage to complement other therapies you are receiving to treat a particular area of your body.
Perhaps you are not getting the results you want from other traditional treatments. Receiving massage therapy on a regular basis may help in these instances.
