Over the years, massage therapy has become increasingly popular, with more and more people using these treatments as a way to relax or to manage pain. Our team at Mapleview Chiropractic Centre offers massage therapy among our many services, and we have seen its benefits first-hand. In this article, we will go over a few signs indicating you could benefit from massage therapy—if you have experienced any of the things on this list, we encourage you to give us a call to schedule a massage.
1. Your Muscles are Stiff – Massage therapy is an excellent way to alleviate stiff muscles. Massage therapists use pressure to manipulate your muscles and connective tissue, gently warming them up and moving them to get them limber again. Muscle stiffness is often caused by the muscle fibres and connective tissue becoming stuck together, and massage is designed to get them “un-stuck”.
2. You are in Pain – Another sign you could use massage therapy is muscle pain or soreness. Our massage therapists can provide relief from headaches, arthritis pain, fibromyalgia, and more. Massage is also an effective way to manage chronic pain, and we can even set you up on a recurring schedule to provide the ongoing relief and support you are looking for.
3. You’re Stressed Out – Massage therapy is a highly effective way to relieve stress. Stress has been shown to have a variety of negative impacts on your health, leading to things like high blood pressure, poor sleep, and more. Our massage therapists can help you relax and reduce your stress levels to help you stay healthier and happier.
