Massage Therapy

Posted Sep 07 2008 2:21am 1 Comment

As a mom, you might have heard and learn the massage therapy to help your baby. But massage is not only beneficial to infants. In fact a lot of studies nowadays proved that massage has a lot of good impact in a person.

According to the website MASSAGETHERAPY, evidence is showing that the more massage you can allow yourself, the better you’ll feel. Why ?

Massage as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and for conveying compassion and support. Think of the last time you bumped your head or had a sore calf. What did you do? Rubbed it, right? The same was true of our earliest ancestors. Healers throughout time and throughout the world have instinctually and independently developed a wide range of therapeutic techniques using touch. Many are still in use today, and with good reason. We now have scientific proof of the benefits of massage - benefits ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing tensions of our modern lifestyles. Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind - there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, even more so when massage is utilized as a preventative, frequent therapy and not simply mere luxury. Massage not only feels good, but it can cure what ails you.

Because of the benefits that we have learned through research, the husband and I started going for a massage every other week before I got pregnant. It was a way of rewarding ourself for all the stress we have acquired from work. But most importantly, we believe that it help me a lot. Help me to combat the physical effect of lupus to me.

As I start having whole body massage every other week, I feel that my joints started to relax. My move become more flexible but when I got pregnant the spa no longer accept me for a massage session. Due to this, the husband was the one who massage me everynight from day 1 of my pregnancy until I gave birth.

Today, I still have my massage. Thanks to home service, I still can enjoy this from of relaxation.

Excellent article on the importance of regular massage therapy. Far to many people are used to "instant" relief for everything. The truth is your body didn't get to where it is over night.

For some folks a one hour session from a licensed massage therapist can work wonders on stress levels, pain , or overall discomfort but a regular threatment of therapy massage is needed to regain perfect balance.
