Therapeutic Massage In Health Care
One of the oldest healing arts, massage therapy has been used over a time span of some 3000 years to treat and cure a wide range of common ailments and health conditions.
Therapeutic massage effectively treats:
• Lower back and neck pain.
• Sprains and muscular strains.
• Fatigue and stress.
• Arthritis and inflammation.
• Circulatory and digestive conditions.
Today, therapeutic massage is utilized in a variety of health care settings, such as clinics, alternative health care environments, medical offices, and hospitals. Therapeutic massage is also incorporated into specialized treatment for orthopedics, geriatrics, chiropractic care, sports medicine, and physical therapy. Holistic practitioners tailor therapeutic massage techniques to enhance energy work.
An increasing number of health care professionals and consumers are recognizing that the health benefits of therapeutic massage extend beyond pampering and relaxation. Therapeutic massage can increase flexibility, energy and range of motion as well as strengthen the immune system. Generalized pain syndromes, muscle stiffness and functional disability can be alleviated with therapeutic massage.
