Does massage ease pain?
Massage can be very effective at relieving pain. Massage methods like the ones practiced at Mobile Pain Relief Massage Philadelphia help to ease pain in several different ways. One way is that it can help to increase blood flow to stiff, sore joints and muscles, which are warmed by the extra circulation and warmth brought on by the increased blood flow to the region. Studies with animals have found the release of natural painkillers called opioids in the brain can often be triggered by massage. Similar studies also suggest that the flow of oxytocin, a hormone that relaxes muscles and encourages feelings of calmness and contentment can be sped up by massage.
Is massage effective for pain relief?
There is little doubt that a good massage can ease tightness and pain in overworked, stressed joints and muscles. There is growing evidence that it can also help relieve long-lasting and chronic pain. This is especially effective for the lower-back area pains. A recent study found that for relieving back pain, massage was far superior to patient education or acupuncture. In fact, after 10 weeks over 70 percent of patients rated massage as being very helpful. For acupuncture, scores came in at just over 45 percent. For patient education alone, which were those that simply read a self-help book about their pain, saw scores just over 15 percent. Massage patients were also 400 percent less likely than other patients to report being bedridden with pain. The study authors concluded that massage might be an effective alternative for persistent back pain to conventional medical care .
To show some of the fantastic things that can be achieved by massage, studies have shown that massage was able to ease the chronic pain suffered by cancer patients. A study of more than 1200 patients found that symptoms such as nausea, anxiety, and pain can be reduced by around 50 percent by massage.
