Most of us have suffered from a sore back (or other body parts) at one point or another in our lives – in fact, studies have shown that over 80% of people will suffer from some form of back or muscular pain at some point in their life. Whether it is chronic or sporadic, there is nothing worse than trying to function when one is in pain. As a dedicated Health and Wellness Center, LaVida Massage is acutely aware of the need for effective natural pain management techniques.
There is a growing surplus of clinical research proving the effective reduction, alleviation or management of chronic or sporadic pain when using massage therapy. As a result of this supported data, medical professionals and patients now recognize the importance of integrating therapeutic massage into mainstream pain management programs.
These studies indicate therapeutic massage not only alleviates pain in hospitalized cancer patients (as one example), but also alleviates muscle spasms as well as reducing the need for perception pain medication. In fact, 95% of that patient study group felt that massage therapy was a ‘crucial part’ of their hospital experience and, as a result, the need for medications actually dropped on the days they received therapeutic massage. Now that’s proof positive, ‘Hands On’ relief!
