Can Do For You
Beyond Pain Relief, Massage is Valuable For Preventive Care
By Karrie Osborn
hether it is an aching back, recovery from an injury,
a case of carpal tunnel syndrome, or a host of
other debilitating physiological conditions, there's
no doubt massage and bodywork works to relieve pain. But
once your therapist has helped you tackle your pain, do you
quit calling? When the pain is gone, are you gone, too?
Massage therapy is highly effective for pain relief, but it is an amazing
preventive therapy as well. Massage helps build and maintain a healthy body
(and mind), it combats stress, and it works to keep the immune system strong.
In short, massage can keep on working for you, even after the pain is gone.
