DID YOU KNOW........THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE THERAPY HELPS?As Mother's Day comes along this weekend, I want to share that this is a special day totally dedicated to Mothers!! Mothers play many different roles, but most important, in my opinion...Mothers usually always help!! Think of a time when your mother offered you help...whether she gave inspiring words or gave you in your face advice....Mothers always want to HELP!!
 
In loving memory of my mother, Mary Elizabeth Baker, I want to share this month's Blog and relate it to how good Massage Therapy, like good Mothers, helps to make you feel better!  Evidence is showing that the more massage you can allow yourself, the better you'll feel. Here's why..... 
 
We now have scientific proof of the benefits of massage - benefits ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing stress of our modern lifestyles. Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind - there are specific physiological and psychological changes that help the body. Even more so when massage is utilized to help prevent disease, massage therapy is not simply mere luxury. Massage not only feels good, but it can help cure what ails you. Massage is a perfect elixir for good health, but it can also provide an integration of body and mind. By producing a meditative state or heightened awareness, sometimes known as a "runner's high" of living in the present moment, massage can provide emotional and spiritual balance, bringing with it help that promotes relaxation and peace within your mind, body and spirit!
 
What is massage? Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments in a skilled format.  There are many different types of massage, including the following most common types:
  • Swedish Massage= This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.
  • Deep Tissue Massage= This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, to help with muscle injuries.
  • Sports Massage= This is similar to Swedish massage, but it's geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.
  • Trigger Point Massage= This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers(known as knots) that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
 
The Consequences of Stress....
Experts estimate that 80 percent to 90 percent of disease is stress-related. Massage and bodywork is there to combat that frightening number by helping us remember what it means to relax. The physical changes massage brings to your body can have a positive effect in many areas of your life. Besides increasing relaxation and decreasing anxiety, massage lowers your blood pressure, increases circulation, improves recovery from injury, helps you to sleep better and can increase your concentration. It reduces fatigue and gives you more energy to handle stressful situations.
 
In closing....Therapeutic Massage Therapy helps your mind, body and spirit!!
