Massage has been shown to help alleviate chronic pain. Massage is a method of muscle manipulation and pressure that is designed to relax the muscles, improve blood flow and reduce body toxins, stress and tension. It can calm the body and allow the mind to focus on something other than constant pain. Massage can help relieve many different chronic pains including Fibromyalgia, back pain, arthritis and migraines. Massage will help manage pain in three different ways. First massage reduces muscle tension. If muscles tension is not dealt with, it can lead to pain, numbness or tingling. Massage can help reduce muscle tension by stretch tight muscles and stimulating the nervous system. Massage can also improve circulation. Poor circulation can lead to a buildup of toxic waste that leaves the body feeling sore and fatigued. Massage can release trigger points and stimulate blood flow to flush away the toxins. Finally, massage can improve movement. Those who experience chronic pain find it difficult to move and perform daily activities. This lack of movement can lead to increased stiffness and pain. Massage uses stretching and kneading to soften and lengthen tissue to improve range of motion.
