More about the wonderful benefits of massage

Massage Therapy provides many benefits, such as:

  • Increases circulation, which allows the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.
  • Stimulates the lymph system, the body’s natural defense, against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.
  • Releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. For this reason, massage is incorporated in treatment for chronic illnesses, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain.
  • Improves range of motion and decreases discomfort associated with lower back pain.
  • Relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles.
  • Reduces muscle spasms and cramping.
  • Increases joint flexibility.
  • Reduces recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminates subsequent risk of muscle strain.
  • Relieves pain for migraine sufferers and decreases the need for medication.
  • Reduces post-operative adhesions and edema, as well as reduces and realigns scar tissue after healing has occurred.
  • Contributes to shorter labor, reduces the need for medication and aides in quicker recovery in pregnant women.

    Massage Therapy can be a profitable caeerr however it can take years to build a successful practice. You must really like people and be able to separate yourself from others emotions (like a nurse or a doctor). Working in a spa can afford you a steady income and benefits but not the same income as private practice. What you can charge for a massage varies greatly by town/city/state/region.It is a very strenuously job, and most people only stay in the field for 5-8 years due to burnout or injury.I would recommend that if you are interested that find out if any massage schools in your area hold discovery workshops in which you get a one-day crash course.I love my caeerr and don’t regret entering it at all, but I would recommend that you look into it seriously before you make the schooling commitment.
