What are the benefits of massage therapy?
Massage therapy has been used for thousands of years by Indian, Chinese, Egyptian, Greek and many other ancient civilizations. In Europe, massage therapy became widely used during the 14th century, whereas the US has only started practicing it during the mid 19th century.
Therapists have to make sure that the patient does not have any medical history that may conflict with the massage therapy provided. If the patient does prove to have a prior medical condition, he is then advised to consult with his health care provider in order to advise regarding the potential benefits of massage therapy and whether to pursue it.
The main benefits of massage therapy consist of pain relief (as well as rehabilitating sports injuries), stress reducing (blood pressure lowering, muscle relaxing, heart ratelowering),improving blood circulation (body function improvements, enhancing blood flow),strengthening the immune system (helps fighting off infections and bacteria), improving breathing, reducing muscle tensions, reducing anxiety and depression and ensuring a general state of good health and wellness.
