Therapy

pain. According to the American Massage Therapy
Association (AMTA), massage is good medicine.

    symptoms and improve health. Massage therapy
    does both naturally. As more people choose to
    live a healthier lifestyle and prefer a more
    holistic approach to health care and pain
    management, the demand for licensed massage
    therapists grows. According to O NET OnLine, the
    career outlook for massage therapists is
    expected to grow at a much faster rate than

How Massage
Works
By triggering an involuntary but expected
relaxation response from the nervous system,
massage can produce physical and emotional
benefits. This causes your heart and breathing
rates to slow down and your blood pressure and
stress hormones to decrease.

When inflammation causes the muscles in the back
to spasm and impede mobility, massage can help
reduce the pain by improving circulation,
relaxing muscles, increasing endorphins (the
feel-good chemicals) and improving sleep.
