Some people believe massage therapy is only for pampering.
Those of us who have experienced a therapeutic massage know differently.
Besides lifestyle considerations, therapeutic massage is one of the best choices for pain relief. Massage also increases circulation, allowing sore areas to heal faster. Lymphatic fluid is circulated every time you receive a massage, which tends to help those who have regular massages ward off illness. Massaged muscles are healthier and less prone to tears and strains. Areas you thought only a surgeon could fix can be transformed with massage. Carpal tunnel, unsteady knees, low back and neck pain, shoulder and hip pain can all be relieved or alleviated through proper massage techniques.
But, if pampering is what you are looking for, that is included too!
