Massage Therapy is successful in the treatment of a variety of health conditions from acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders, post-surgical rehabilitation, injury care/rehabilitation, and general self-care stress management.
Studies have shown that even after a short massage, maybe 15 minutes, heart rate and blood pressure will decrease. There is a sedative and calming effect which in turn can lower both anxiety and stress levels.
Clients can also see stress reductions as pain decreases, this can be noted over a longer interval resulting from multiple treatments.
