At my central Brighton massage therapy practice I offer relief for sports injuries, for neck, back and shoulder complaints such as a result of repetitive strain injury. Many of today’s health problems can benefit from massage therapy because the manipulation of soft tissues affects so many of our bodily systems.
The benefits of massage are extensive and have a therapeutic affect and improve health by acting directly on the muscular, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic (immune) systems. Tight muscles impact on vital things such as posture and can throw off your body’s balance. Before long, muscles that were not initially tight begin to tense as they compensate for other parts of the body.
Massage therapy can identify the source of the problem and start working to alleviate the problem where it started, thus relieving stress, muscle fatigue, relieve or prevent muscular pain or dysfunction. The movements of massage cause blood to flush in and out of muscles and joints. This flushing process enhances circulation in the affected areas and can, in some cases, aid recovery time from injuries.
Stress plays a huge role in health and illness. People who are stressed (even in lovely Brighton!) are less likely to be healthy than people who are relaxed. Stress, for example, increases the risk of heart disease. Massage therapy is an effective and enjoyable way to reduce stress. It can also be a lovely relaxing treat for you!
