Massage is probably one of the best ways to experience total relaxation and to help with sore and aching muscles. However, massage is even more than this, it reportedly helps with the healing process of injury that may have been caused to muscles and connective tissue and it helps to break down scar tissue resulting from old injuries.
A study, on the effects of massage on managing pain, was done at the Flagstaff Medical Centre in Flagstaff, Arizona. Hospital patients were taken from the medical, surgical and obstetrics units to participate in this study and each would receive one or more massage therapy sessions of about 30 minutes each with the number of sessions dependant on how long their hospital stay would be. It is interesting to note that before the patients started the massage they were experiencing pain levels of at about 5.20 on the pain scale and after receiving massage they were reporting an average pain level of 2.33.
Although there was a significant reduction in pain reported, following each massage, the patients were also reporting that they felt emotionally better, more relaxed and were sleeping better.
Whether you have physical injuries causing pain, whether your physically active or not, regular massage therapy will service to relax, distress and will help to reduce pain and muscle tension.
