Massage is Medicine
Massage is Medicine! Some people choose to indulge in massage therapy on rare occasions to pamper ones self to simply relax. But did you know it is proven to reduce stress and anxiety in order to sustain a greater level of health? Massage reduces stress and anxiety to improve your health both physically and mentally, helping to maintain a balance within the body known as homeostasis. Homeostasis is a process that maintains the stability of the human body’s internal environment in response to changes in external conditions.
Whether it is stress, back pain, sports injury, and even depression, massage therapy helps to maintain that internal balance we all need to live an optimally healthy life style. At times we are so hunkered down with our daily grind we get accustomed to the stresses that life brings, and we tend to ignore signs that we simply need to stop for a moment and rejuvenate our bodies and minds.
Another solid point I cannot stress enough is that no other health professional we see on a normal basis is going to inspect our bodies more closely than a good massage therapist. And take note that I say “Good massage therapist”, because unfortunately there are some massage therapists out there that do not pay attention to signs and signals that something is wrong, and in the least should let a client know of some concerns if there is something abnormal observed. Massage therapists that have attended an accredited school for body work have taken pathology as part of their curriculum in order to detect some possible health problems we observe on our clients, and to inform our clients and suggest that they seek a doctor in some cases where it appears there may be skin cancer or some other pathology of concern.
These are some of the reason I believe massage is medicine, both as preventive medicine, as well as maintaining a general higher level of health by receiving regular massage sessions. I do implore people visiting Myrtle Beach that are seeking massage therapy, to make a better choice. Instead of booking a massage with the local spa and not really knowing who you will have as a massage therapist, to continue reading more of my blog articles, as well as my website to see my training and path so far as a massage professional in Myrtle Beach.
