Myotheraphy Healing Massage Clinic in Utah

Stress, pain, tension, and fatigue are common in today’s world but rarely are they dealt with. The effects these factors have on blood pressure, immunity, sleep, and general health are dangerous and can lead to serious health concerns later on in life. Stress leads to chronic muscle contraction which causes serious pain, compromising your quality of sleep and resulting in fatigue, which raises stress even more. Myotheraphy Healing Massage in Utah stops the stress cycle by helping restore your natural body posture so you can enjoy more restful sleep and naturally lower stress levels, all with the power of massage therapy!

Massage Therapy Benefits

What Are the Health Benefits of Massage?

Many types of massage offer benefits beyond simple relaxation. Here are just a few of the health problems that may benefit from massage. Ask your doctor before using massage for any health condition, though.

  • Back pain . More than one study has shown the effectiveness of massage therapy for back pain. In fact, one 2003 study showed it worked better than acupunctureor spinal modification for persistent low back pain — reducing the need for painkillers by 36%.
  • Headache . Another type of pain — headache — also responds to massage therapy, as shown by more than one study. Massage therapy can reduce the number of migraines a person has and also improve sleep.
  • Osteoarthritis . In the first clinical trial looking at the effectiveness of Swedish massage for knee osteoarthritis, participants who received a one-hour massage either one or two times a week had improvements in pain, stiffness, and function. The control group had no such change.
  • Cancer. Used as a complement to traditional, Western medicine, massage can promote relaxation and reduce cancer symptoms or side effects of treatment. It may help reduce pain, swelling, fatigue,nausea, or depression, for example, or improve the function of your immune system.
  • Anxiety. A review of more than 12 studies shows that massage helps relieve depression and anxiety. It lowered levels of cortisol by up to 50%. And massage increased levels of neurotransmitters that help reduce depression.
