Therapeutic Massage Therapy who needs it the most?

Massage therapy is relaxing and refreshing but did you know the right type of massage can be therapeutic. So who can benefit the most from a Therapeutic Massage? 

Athlete need it,  if you have prepared and need to recover from strenuous work outs…. you better believe it.  Why?

Increase joint flexibility
Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks
Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation
Reduce spasms and cramping
Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles

If you’re are not active…..ditto all of the above and then some……

Post Surgery
Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling
Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller

There are too many to think of it’s all based on you, the individual. So maybe the question should be what type of massage therapy or therapeutic massage should I get?

I would recommend if you don’t know whether or not a therapeutic massage therapy is right for you go in for one session and try it, therapist trained in therapeutic approaches to massage should be able to do this for you.
