Massage Therapy for Pain

aromatherapyContributed by Polly Collins, RN, LMT

Do you feel like you are chronically in pain? Do you take ibuprofen a bit too often to curb your aches and pain? Massaging sore muscles can really get to the heart of where many people feel their pain. The stress responses in the body associated with pain, such as elevated cortisol, are reduced through massage. This is why massage therapy is used to treat so many different kinds of pain associated with conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia and even in depressive disorders and chronic fatigue.

Massage therapy uses touch to promote relaxation for physical and psychological healing. A certified massage therapist can work one-on-one with patients to manipulate muscles and tissues of the body to aid in healing and recovery. Our therapists specialize in neuromuscular release and myofascial release, and are experienced in working closely with other medical providers to create a seamless interdisciplinary approach to improving a patient’s health.

Massage therapists offer:

  • Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) Blended with Swedish
  • Swedish Massage
  • Visceral Manipulation
  • Cranial Sacral Therapy
  • Myofascial Release
