In my practice as a massage therapist, now located in Golden, I find most people are seeking relief from back and hip pain, neck and shoulder pain.
From my experience, different applications of Ashiatsu massage are often very well adapted to treating these common conditions, as well as, Acupressure and Deep Tissue techniques.
Certainly, massage is not a substitute for medical care; however, many common problems can be effectively treated by a skilled massage therapist, and massage therapy can be used in some cases as an adjunct to medical treatments.
A massage research study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, July 5th, 2011, found that a series of 10 weekly massage treatments led to a more rapid improvement in chronic lower back pain than the usual treatments for two-thirds of the study participants vs one-third using the usual care. The data suggested the massage benefits lasted up to 6 months.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, a successful approach must not only involve the treatment of the symptom but most importantly the root or cause of the problem - In fact, it is the root that is given the most importance.
For back pains, it is very important to exercise regularly, strengthen the back muscles and maintain good posture; especially when sitting for hours at work. Massage therapy can speed your healing and play a valuable part in maintaining optimal health.
The other common reason for people seeking massage therapy is for stress reduction. It is very easy to discount the importance of stress and the adverse impact it can have on our health.
The American Medical Association found that stress is a factor in 75 percent of all illnesses and disease. Research also suggests that stress is implicated in the development of autoimmune disease (where the immune system's self-regulating function no longer works properly ), and which itself can lead to many other diseases; such as, diabetes, celiac disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, etc.
It is important to see stress as a real threat to our health, to treat it as best we can, and seek out ways to eliminate the causes in our daily life.
While I've only talked about a few major reasons for seeking massage therapy, other massage benefits include -
Stress reduction and increased stamina - energy.
