Massage Therapeutics Can Improve Health and Well Being

Massage therapeutics is not about the candles, aromatherapy, and the spa. Although those items can be beneficial for relaxation etc, the massage part of the therapy is just that. An intense manual manipulation of the body’s tissues. Made to work out/relax tight, knotted, spasmed, and inflamed muscles, ligaments, and tendons back to a normal and relaxed function. This can be caused by injury, stress, awkward motion/s, etc. Research done by the American Massage Therapy Association shows that 50% of individuals asked for a therapeutic massage for musculoskeletal/stress issues.

More physicians, specialists, and surgeons are recognizing the health benefits that massage therapeutics can bring and are sending their patients to certified/licensed massage therapists for treatment. There is now a high demand for massage therapists with the career possibilities being one of the strongest in the health care industry. Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of muscles and soft tissues including:
  • Connective tissues
  • Ligaments
  • Tendons
This is all done with the focus of improving an individual’s health and overall well-being. Licensed certified massage therapists are highly-trained and highly-versed in anatomy and physiology. Many often work with chiropractors preparing patients for the chiropractic adjustment/s by loosening up the muscles/tissues, then after with a light massage to ease the soreness of the adjustment and if necessary with continued visits with a mild to intense massage session to keep the areas loose and mobile. Massage therapeutics effectively treats several medical conditions, sports injuries, automobile accident injuries, personal injuries, and helps prevent health problems connected with stress. Research shows that these medical conditions can be significantly improved or even healed with massage therapeutics.
