ARTHRITIS PAIN

One of the best ways to keep that nagging arthritic pain at bay is massage! Massage increases bloodflow and helps to eliminate toxic buildup in the muscle tissue. Regular massage visits every 4 to 6 weeks will help manage artirithis pain.

A recent journal article (Medical Clinics of North America, 2002) reviewed the medical literature on the use of massage to manage arthritis pain. The authors concluded that few people would dispute the short-term benefits for arthritis pain relief. However, studies of the long-term effects of the technique are still lacking.

Massage therapies which may help you:

Deep tissue massage: Deals with the deeper muscle tissue of the body. It is needed when chronic knots, also referred to as adhesions, exist deep within muscle fibers. It aims to relieve the chronic tension throughout the muscles and fibrous tissue to increase flexibility and range of motion resulting in improved posture. (Click here for more information)
