Relieve Your Pain with Back and Neck Massage
Are you experiencing back or neck pain? Everyday stress may be the culprit. Stress can affect your health and well-being in numerous ways, and it has a negative impact on your quality of life. Many people carry their stress in the neck or back. Massage therapy and other soft tissue treatments provide immediate, long-lasting pain relief. Their benefits are both medical and therapeutic in nature.
Relieve Back and Neck Pain
Are you ready to escape from daily stress and the pain it creates in your muscles? Our back and neck massages can soothe your joints and muscles and help you relax. Back and neck treatments target the pain in your lower and upper back as well as your neck. Not only do they reduce tension, but they also increase the flow of endorphins — those “feel good” chemicals that relieve stress and make you feel better.
Reduce Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain is the most common type of back pain. Your back muscles are likely to feel tight or tense after a long day at work or a vigorous workout at the gym. Muscle stiffness usually occurs after overuse or repetitive use. A good back massage relieves the tension in your back and reduces the pain.
Eliminate Upper Back Pain
Repetitive movements or immobility can cause your neck and shoulders to ache. An upper back massage relieves tension in that part of your body. It’s an effective treatment for migraine headaches too.
Remove Troublesome Knots
Do you have tender, painful knots in your muscles? These hard little knots are called trigger points, and they often cause pain and stiffness. Finger massages work out the knots in your neck muscles and soothe those uncomfortable trigger points.
Release “Feel Good” Chemicals
Back massages stimulate the production of “feel good” chemicals like endorphins, dopamine and serotonin. According to Beth Mueller, a registered massage therapist (RMT), these chemicals make your body feel good. In “Massage Therapy for Lower Back Pain,” she writes about the pain management benefits of massage. Not only does massage reduce back pain, but it may help prevent anxiety and depression. You can read Mueller’s article on the Spine Health website.
Improve Sleep Quality
Tension in your back muscles may be keeping you awake at night, or it may awaken you out of a deep sleep. Our massages relax the large muscles in your back to help you sleep easier. This allows you to get a full cycle of sleep for optimum health and performance.
Do you have chronic back pain? Even after a long pain history, a massage can heal your tissues and muscles — even those that are weak or atrophied. This healing quality improves your flexibility and range of motion. Massagetherapy.com says massage also reduces scar tissue and stretch marks. Athletes and workers with back strain usually notice increased flexibility after a massage.
Your blood circulation also improves after a good back massage. Soft tissue treatments stimulate circulation and increase blood flow to all areas of the body. This helps the blood transport oxygen and nutrients to your muscles and other body organs.
Stress is a fact of life, and it can have negative consequences on your health and well-being. If you’re like many people, everyday stress shows itself in your neck and back. With its many health benefits, massage therapy can provide immediate pain relief.
