Joint or Muscle Pain

Joint or Muscle Pain

Muscle and joint pain are common issues, affecting a countless number of people each year. While many people aren’t aware of the treatments available to them, many others seek out massage therapy as a way to decrease pain and promote relaxation. In fact, massage has been used for this purpose for thousands of years!

Massage Therapy & Pain

There are a number of ways that massage therapy can relieve pain. Researchers have found that massage can even prompt your body to release its own natural pain relievers, including oxytocin. Oxytocin is released by the body to ease pain and to make you feel more relaxed. Additionally, massage therapy increases blood flow throughout the body, easing and loosening sore or stiff joints and muscles.

Unlike other options including surgery and medication, massage therapy is completely safe and entirely natural. Using broad, general strokes to improve blood flow, and trigger points to release tighter knots and exact points of pain, a massage can allow the body to heal itself.
