Most of us have suffered from a sore back (or other sore muscles) 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 lifetime. Whether it is chronic or sporadic, there is nothing worse than trying to function while you’re in pain. As a dedicated Health and Wellness Center, LaVida Massage is acutely aware of the need for effective, and natural pain management techniques.
Growing amounts of clinical research shows that massage therapy is effective in the reduction, alleviation, or management of chronic or sporadic pain. Because of this supporting 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 and may reduce the need for prescription pain medication. In fact, 95% of a patient study group felt that massage therapy was a ‘crucial part’ of their hospital experience, and as a result, the need for medication decreased on the days they received therapeutic massage. Now that’s proof positive, ‘Hands On’ relief!
