Common Health Problems: What Massages Can Do?
A massage is one of the most powerful techniques when it comes to addressing overall health and well-being issues. There are inevitable times when we would feel certain aches all over our body and the spa would usually be the go-to place to get that much-needed massage in untangling these knots.
We have rounded up some of the most common health problems and the various massage techniques we can do to alleviate them.
Lower back pain
Lower back pain can happen due to incorrect body posture or improper usage such as overstretching and sports injury, which can then lead to muscle tear. It can develop suddenly or gradually. Aging may also be a contributing factor as there is a tendency to develop certain diseases, such as degenerative disc disease, trauma, joint dysfunctions, and osteoarthritis.
One of the most recommended treatment plans for lower back pain is massage therapy. It is an effective way to combat muscle spasms and has the ability to increase blood flow to the lower back. You can opt for the likes of Hot Stone Massage or a Deep Tissue Massage as these are known to alleviate muscle tension and stiffness.
High blood pressure
High blood pressure is one of the most commonly developed diseases that may occur due to a variety of reasons. This can be age-related, due to stress, being overweight, or genetics.
Massage therapy can lower the occurrence of high blood pressure as it calms down your sympathetic nervous system, which is known to play a role in managing your blood pressure level. An aromatherapy massage can be most helpful as it alleviates any stresses you may be feeling and bring you to a state of euphoric relaxation.
There have been some relevant studies that showed that massage therapy can also be helpful in treating cancer patients as it can provide emotional support for them. It also helps combat the physical side effects that traditional cancer treatment does. It is recommended that the message therapy be done during and after treatment.
Massage therapy that focuses on pain relief can be the most recommended for cancer patients such as Swedish massage. Likewise, there are a variety of massage techniques available that can be tailored-fit based on the symptoms you are experiencing.
There are days when we don’t necessarily feel our best and will experience certain shifts in our emotions. Depression is one condition that a lot of people undergo. While massage therapy cannot cure depression entirely, it can benefit the physical symptoms at least. It can bring improvement to feeling sluggish, promote better sleep and relieve any physical pain such as at the back, muscles, and joints. An improvement in the physical aspect somehow lifts the mood, even for a moment.
There are a variety of massage techniques to choose from that can give your mood a boost such as hot stone, deep tissue, and even aromatherapy.
