Why is a massage a good gift to give to someone you care about?
With or without special oils, a massage session provides relaxation, pain relief and deep nurturance: Studies show massage therapy boosts the release of the feel-good hormones oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine, all of which increase feelings of contentment.

Therapeutic massage for pain relief

Harvard University said: Massage used to be considered an indulgence, but it’s now recognized as a legitimate therapy for some painful conditions.

A study published in Annals of Family Medicine in 2014 found that 60-minute therapeutic massage sessions two or three times a week for four weeks relieved chronic neck pain better than no massage or fewer or shorter massage sessions.

Why Are So Many People Getting Massages.
According to the AMTA, 69% of all doctors recommends and encourage their patients to get massages.

That’s over 569,940 doctors that says massages can be very helpful to your health.

39.1 million adult Americans do end up getting a massage. Because of how popular massages really are, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that over 168,800 jobs are available in massage therapy with demand growing “much faster than average.”

They even expect jobs for massage therapists to grow by 22% every year for the next decade.

Therapeutic massage may relieve pain by way of several mechanisms, including relaxing painful muscles, tendons, and joints; relieving stress and anxiety; and possibly helping to “close the pain gate” by stimulating competing nerve fibers and impeding pain messages to and from the brain.

Therapeutic massage has been studied for its effect on pain in the back, hands, neck, and knees, among other areas.

A study published in Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice showed a reduction in hand pain and an improvement in grip strength among people who had four weekly hand massage sessions and did self-massage at home.

The study also reviled that they slept better and had less anxiety and depression than people in the control group who didn’t receive hand massage.

People with certain pain conditions such as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome may only be able to tolerate light pressure.

There are no data to suggest that massage is harmful, but there are some specific situations where it is not recommended: massaging an inflamed area of skin, for example, can make it worse by causing irritation. One should not have massage to an area of infection, as it might spread the infection.

Choose a licensed therapist; your PT may be able to make a recommendation.
