The power of massage for muscle pain

What is massage therapy?

Massage is an effective treatment for muscle, joint, and soft tissue pain. Massage has been used for centuries, and today researchers have discovered specific, proven methods to apply exact pressure and friction to affected tissues to generate real results, decreasing pain and promoting healing. At Integrated Physical Health, our massage therapists are trained to focus on soft tissues affected by chronic conditions as well as stress, injuries, and acute illness using precise manual techniques.

A massage therapy session at Integrated Physical Health may last from 15 minutes to an hour. It involves a therapist using his or her hands, and sometimes elbows and forearms, to apply pressure and manipulate the soft tissues. Massage can do you a world of good, and getting a massage frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork. This form of self-care can play a huge role in your overall health. Regularly-scheduled bodywork is truly an investment in your health.
