Why Do People Get Massage Therapy?
People get MT for relaxation or for a variety of health conditions such as: back pain, inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and tendinitis, stress relief and stress-related conditions, headaches/ migraines, muscle issues such as spasms, strains and sprains, repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, circulatory and respiratory problems, and post-injury/surgical rehabilitation. MT relieves stress. It is thought to help the body's stress response by lowering levels of hormones such as cortisol. Massage therapy also appears to enhance immune function.
