Therapeutic Massage Sessions:
In addition to relaxation, massage can effectively reduce or eliminate muscular pain associated with injury or other conditions. Sometimes medication use is affected in positive ways, resulting in lower doses or reduced side effects. Massage therapy reduces amounts of stress hormones in the body, which can have positive impact on diabetes control and stressful or stress-related conditions. Listed below are some examples of how massage therapy is used for relief, or ongoing management.
Regular sessions are most effective. Depending on the person, condition or injury, "regular" may mean weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Positive results of massage therapy have cumulative effects. Just as no one would train for a marathon in a weekend or two, massage is most effective when made a regular wellness routine. Research from the University of Miami's Touch Research Institute, also includes positive immune function results, in general, as well as with specific medical treatment. Massage is a versatile therapy that functions well independently for wellness and activity, as well as a complementary one to medical treatment.
