In a world full of new firsts and “New Norms”, it is wonderful to know some things remain the same. Massage Therapy is still effective in helping you manage your stress levels of everyday life, as well as aide in managing pain. This is a truth standing the test of time, and even more benefits continue to be discovered every day.
Massage Therapy is a safe and effective means of bolstering your health care regime and can provide a positive impact on your overall wellbeing. In a PubMed article written by esteemed Massage Therapy Researcher, Dr. Tiffany Field, entitled “Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice”, the abstract states the following;
*“In this review, massage therapy has been shown to have beneficial effects on varying conditions including prenatal depression, preterm infants, full-term infants, autism, skin conditions, pain syndromes including arthritis and fibromyalgia, hypertension, autoimmune conditions including asthma and multiple sclerosis, immune conditions including HIV and breast cancer and aging problems including Parkinson's and dementia. Although many of the studies have involved comparisons between massage therapy and standard treatment control groups, several have compared different forms of massage (e.g. Swedish versus Thai massage), and different active therapies such as massage versus exercise. Typically, the massage therapy groups have experienced more positive effects than the control or comparison groups. This may relate to the massage therapy providing more stimulation of pressure receptors, in turn enhancing vagal activity and reducing cortisol levels.”
