There’s a lot More to Getting a Massage than Just Feeling Good
In the hands of the right practitioner, a massage can heal you on a level far deeper than just the surface through muscle memory. In short, it’s believed that when specific trauma occurs, our body attempts to protect itself by unleashing the “fight or flight” response, and in turn, some of the trauma is stored away in our tissue, muscles, and major organs.
One common misconception about massage therapy is that it’s just about being pampered. Sure, massages feel nice – but they’re healthy too! Massage therapy can be an excellent supplement to a wide range of other types of medical care. Even if you don’t have any specific medical issues, there are many situations where a massage can genuinely help you feel better and have a healthier body.
