The medical community often uses massage therapy as an alternative, complementary, or integrative therapy. Healthcare providers see massage therapy as an effective addition to the overall physical and mental healing process.
Massage therapy offers physical benefits like decreasing pain from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and chronic pain. It also reduces muscle tension, relieves tension headaches, decreases migraine frequency, and improves cardiovascular health. Massage therapy can also increase the range of motion, enhance athletic performance, and improve balance in older patients.
The mental benefits of massage therapy include temporary relief from stress, anxiety, and depression. Massage therapy also improves sleep, enhances relaxation, and boosts immunity.
