Benefits of massage therapy and other treatments
Massage was used in ancient Greece and Rome, as well as in the earliest civilizations in China, Japan, Egypt and India. Once considered an "alternative" medicine, massage therapy is recommended by many medical professionals to patients suffering from anxiety, sciatica, fibromyalgia, stress, athletic injury and general soreness. According to the Mayo Clinic, massage has also been found to be helpful for those undergoing cancer treatments to ease their anxiety, pain and fatigue.
A new study published in the December issue of the American Medical Association's Archives of Surgery found that massage, in conjunction with regular pain medication, significantly improved patient pain and anxiety after major surgery. Economic hardship should not be the reason to deprive your body of relief from pain, injury or stress.
Stress-related disorders make up between 80-and-90 percent of the ailments that bring people to family practice physicians in Ft Lauderdale and cities such as Dania Beach, Davie, Hollywood, Hallandale Beach, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Sunrise Weston and north Dade County. What most people require is someone to listen, someone to touch them, someone to care. That does not exist in modern medicine. People in South Florida are seeking massage to deal with stress as well as a way to increase their range of motion, enhance athletic performance and treat injuries caused during sport or work.
Massage has long been considered a way in which we relax or recovery from injury. In many salons and spas, today, massage therapists are offering a variety of specialty massages to treat ailments, promote relaxation and even promote health for pregnant women who desire a pregnancy massage.
But, did you know that massages provide more than relaxation and recovery from injury? There are many facets of massage that the average consumer is not even aware of. For example, if you suffer from a sleep disorder, massage can improve your sleep by increasing delta waves, promoting deep sleep both on the massaging table and in the days following massage, when you return home.
Preparing for a test or significant presentation at work? Massage is a great way to boost your brain function, including memory. This is the reason that many employers, today, are promoting the use of 15-minute chair massages during the workday. Promoting brain wave activity, massage can provide an improved state of awareness and increase alertness, great for anyone who needs a boost of brain power within the 24 hours after a massage.
We have treatments that are designed to your personal need, but adapted to your need, from Deep tissue/sports massage,Lymphatic Drainage therapy,CranioSacral Therapy,Neuromuscular,stretching and with the additional treatment of hot or cold packs. In today's manic world, we all need some "me" time ...so how about you? How do YOU relax and restore that vital essence within you? Make your health a top priority before anything else. These new types of alternative medicine, including massage therapy, continue to change the medical field more and more. Many sports utilize it, including the Olympics.
Beyond injuries, other mental and physical ailments can also be remedied and prevented with massage. For example, because massage therapy promotes the release of natural antibodies, boosting the immune system, while also decreasing the level of cortisol, associated with stress, you can decrease the risk of catching the common cold, suffering from depression and even remedy many of the complaints associated with PMS.
In recent studies, it has been found that massage may stimulate the activity of the left side of the brain which is the side of the brain that is most active when we are pleased, happy or excited. While the right side of the brain is depressed, leaving less opportunity for sadness, stress and depression. In fact, massage is a great way to improve the mental and physical health of patients who are anxious about surgery or chemotherapy.
