Somatic Massage Therapy Benefits
When you think of getting a massage, you may picture a luxury spa environment with candles and soothing music. However, when it comes to chronic pain and anxiety, you need something more focused on your long-term health and drug-free relief.
As current Somatic Massage Therapy clients know, our clinical massage therapists create personalized, in-office and at-home treatment plans to address their physical and emotional needs. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) – National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, “…there is evidence that massage may help with back pain and may improve the quality of life for people with depression, cancer, and HIV/AIDS.”
Medical massage (clinical massage) is also reported to increase circulation, a range of movement, and enhance the production of pain-blocking hormones. This is why the treatment of fibromyalgia and chronic lower back pain sufferers includes the application of hands-on therapy.
Aside from physical pain, studies increasingly show medical massage therapy has documented antidepressant effects. Since a majority of our population lives with the mental and physical side effects of stress and anxiety, these too can be addressed with clinical massage therapy.
