Benefits of Massage

I would like to briefly discuss the true benefits of massage. What do we as clients and therapists benefit from massage therapy? As a massage therapist in Myrtle Beach, I try to stay active and eat healthy, I get out and enjoy the sun and pursue some outdoor hobbies and interests, yet I still get my share of aches and pains in my joints and muscular system.

I think some times I may not push myself enough to stay active and fit, and other times I push myself too hard and inevitably injure myself with a strain or sprain in a random muscle. As a massage therapist, I not only find massage therapy beneficial to my healing, to receive regular massage therapy sessions in my opinion truly does act as preventative medicine as well. I prefer a deep sports massage, ridding my body of trigger points, as well as a good assisted stretching regimen that keeps me limber.

There are many different types of massage therapy that promote wellness in different ways , which is really why I try to incorporate quite a few different massage techniques to my sessions. As always I ask for feedback from my client about the amount of pressure in each area I am working, but I generally infuse deep tissue, Swedish massage, Lymphatic drainage massage, and a bit of thai massage and stretching. I truly try to give a massage that will balance out the body, returning the client to a centered homeostasis.

I do believe the gate theory has some merit with the healing properties of massage therapy, in short the pleasure of massage over comes the pain of an injury by over taking the nerve pathway. But there is more to it than that. I would like to list some of the major benefits of massage.

  • Promotes greater systemic oxygen and blood flow.
  • Reduces toxins in the body with lymphatic massage techniques
  • Maintains a more limber musculature, thus reducing the risk of injury in a sports related activity.
  • Massage reduces tension and stress.
  • Using quality emollients, massage therapy can prevent premature aging of the skin.
  • Massage therapy, as seen in my practice, increases performance in sports related activities.
  • Massage therapy reduces edema and swelling.

These are just a few key elements that make massage therapy a positive addition to anyone trying to live a healthier and happier life style. Finding a knowledgeable massage therapist that offers affordable rates is a bit like fishing at times, but there are some great therapists out there that are worth the hunt. My reviews on google ,yp.com, kudzu.com, and quite a few other web listings speak for my experience, but if you would like to book a session with one of the highest rated massage therapists in Myrtle Beach, I ask that you visit my website and read a bit more about my training and experience, and then give me a call to book a massage session . I travel to my clients with a great massage table, linens, and all the massage products I need for the session.
