Positive effects of therapeutic massage on the body

As we explained earlier, therapeutic massages have multiple benefits for our body and well-being. Among the most notable, we can mention:

  • Relaxes and stretches the muscles: therapeutic massage maneuvers work on soft tissue to release accumulated tension. This way, inflammation is reduced, and the muscle is relaxed to alleviate pains and discomforts caused by traumas or injuries.
  • Helps gain flexibility in tissues: several therapeutic massage techniques aim to stretch muscle mass and promote relaxation. Movements are often accompanied by deep and conscious breathing by the patient.
  • Promotes good circulation: the vibratory movements of therapeutic massage stimulate blood flow in the muscles.
  • Stimulates growth and muscle development: kneading and compression are maneuvers that help nourish and tone the muscle.
  • Has a positive impact on the nervous system: therapeutic massage increases the production of endorphins, which act on the nervous system producing a feeling of well-being.

When should I receive a therapeutic massage?

Therapeutic massages are generally part of treatment for the recovery of some pathologies and physical conditions, including:

  • Sports injuries such as sprains, dislocations, and twists.
  • Rehabilitations after immobilizing a part of the body.
  • Early stages of rheumatic conditions.
  • Treatment of traumas.
  • Peripheral neurological diseases, such as paralysis, and central ones, like insomnia.

Precautions before receiving a therapeutic massage

While a therapeutic massage can be pleasant, its main objective is not to relax but to treat and alleviate a condition or pathology. For this reason, some maneuvers may be uncomfortable, especially during the first sessions. Although in those cases it is recommended to trust the professional, it is important to communicate any discomfort immediately. This way, the masseuse can make the necessary adjustments to avoid hurting you. Also, it's important to note that there are some conditions where therapeutic massages are contraindicated, some of them are:

  • Vascular fragility.
  • Thrombophlebitis.
  • Skin infection.
  • Open wounds in the area.

If you have any of the above conditions, it is not advisable to receive therapeutic massages or any type, as it could have a negative impact. Always consult with a health professional before undergoing any treatment or intervention. If you are interested in learning more about the topic, please let us know in the comments section.
