How can massage help with pain relief?
Pain can often hamper your overall well-being and quality of life. Of course you can use painkillers or anti-inflammatory medication to deal with pain but these sometimes come with side effects. Thankfully we can eliminate or lessen pain using alternative, more natural methods such as massage. Massage is an ancient practice which has been used for thousands of years, but how can massage therapy help with pain relief? and what can it help with?
What can massage help with?
Studies have shown that massage therapy can help relieve pain associated with these issues:
•Tension headaches and migraines
Endorphins are natural chemicals in the brain that have pain-relieving properties similar to morphine. Large amounts of endorphins are released into the bloodstream during massage. This explains why we might feel groggy, lightheaded and have a sense of wellbeing after a massage.
As well as managing pain, endorphins are also thought to be connected to physiological processes including euphoria, appetite control, and the release of sex hormones.
