When to get a massage?

When you first start to get pain. Don’t ignore the warning signs that something is wrong. The longer the problem goes untreated the more difficult it will be to correct.

After an injury. Research shows that the sooner you start therapy following an injury the better.

If you suffer a sprain or muscle tear don’t leave it to get better by itself. It is recommended that you rest during the acute stage of an injury which lasts about 3 days but as soon as the swelling and pain is at a manageable level is a good time start light massage therapy. Massage assists the healing process with faster muscle recovery allowing you to exercise sooner and more effectively. Massage helps improve scar tissue formation and generally assists in reducing the risk of re-injury.

Computer and office workers. If you are spending long hours at a computer you can help treat and prevent the injury it is doing to your body with monthly massage therapy and by increasing your activity.

For injury prevention and body maintenance. Don’t wait until you are in pain. Problems can be building for quite some time before you start feeling pain. Regular massage every one to three months addresses any muscle tension before it builds into a painful injury.

For joint stiffness or pain.

Massage releases the tension of your muscles and tendons allowing your joints to move more freely. Tight muscles left to restrict joint movement for long periods of time may lead to wear and tear on the joint structure resulting in painful chronic conditions and or surgery in the long term.

To clear away stress and tension.
