Say Hello to Massage Therapy and Goodbye to Stress

Ongoing stress and anxiety can take their toll on the human body. Fortunately, receiving a therapeutic massage can relieve much of the pain associated with most of the muscular ailments that plague the human body. Whether you're an expectant mother or a student preparing for final exams, you likely carry around more stress than you realize. Receiving a frequent massage can help you keep a healthy level of stress by relieving built up tension.

People often hold most of their tension in the upper body, causing muscle stiffness and pain in the back and neck. When specific muscles are used repetitively over a long period of time, they can develop small knots called trigger points. Those who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome can avoid expensive surgeries by undergoing trigger point therapy. Studies have shown an 87% success rate in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome with trigger point treatment, providing instant relief from pain. Relieving knots from muscles can allow cellular waste to drain and return the effected muscle into a healthy position. Trigger point therapy also helps in the redevelopment of muscles to aid in the healthy motion of joints. Additionally, relieving trigger points in the forearm can interrupt the cycle that perpetuates carpal tunnel syndrome.

No matter what type of massage therapy will relieve your tension and reduce your stress, you can get it from the skilled hands of the massage therapists at LaVida Massage of Washington Township. Book your appointment today!
