Massage Therapy, MM 19767
Therapeutic massage is used to promote healing, reduce pain and muscle spasms, release tension and stress.
An increasing number of research studies show massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins (enhancing medical treatment). Although therapeutic massage does not increase muscle strength, it can stimulate weak, inactive muscles and, thus, partially compensate for the lack of exercise and inactivity resulting from illness or injury. It also can hasten and lead to a more complete recovery from exercise or injury.
It is also important to note that most insurances will pay for massage therapy. To find out if your does, please call to have one of our staff verify your coverage.
