Back Pain & Massage

Back Pain

Relief of back pain is probably what massage therapy is best known for. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who suffer from frequent back pain, you may want to consider looking into massage therapy to relieve this pain.

Massage therapy can help ease the symptoms of many spinal conditions, which can include the following:

  • Muscle Spasms
  • Muscle Tension
  • Back Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Stiffness
  • Achiness

By helping to restore the blood flow to the painful muscles (and throughout the body), our skilled massage therapist can decrease the pain and inflammation in the back. Additionally, acids and other waste products can accumulate in the muscles, which also causes pain. Massaging the area will deliver nutrients and oxygen to the muscles, and eliminate the waste products and acids.
