How Massage Can Help Reduce Arthritis Pain

What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is an often debilitating and painful condition that can cause inflammation and swelling causing pain in the joints. If you have arthritis, you may suffer from some of these symptoms in addition to others:

  • Joint Pain
  • Difficulty exercising
  • Limited mobility
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Decreased range of motion

There are different types of arthritis. Some of these include, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and others.

Massage therapy can provide relief to your symptoms and be a great complementary treatment to medications.

It is worthwhile noting that many of the common medications used for treatment of arthritis often come with side-affects.

Massage is a safe and natural alternative option for pain relief or can be used along side other medicinal treatments.

How Can Massage Help?

Massage therapy reduces swelling and helps loosen up tightness in the tissues that are affected by your arthritis. These can improve your range of motion, reduce your pain and increase your ability to move comfortably.

How Often Should I have a Massage?

The frequency of your massage therapy sessions is a personal choice. Weekly massage therapy sessions in our Dulong massage clinic would be most beneficial. 

Even if you only have a massage once in a while, you will definitely see the benefits, but obviously regular massages will provide the best outcomes.

Other Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a popular way to rid your body of stress, clear your mind, and, of course, heal sore, aching muscles. For many, seeking massage therapy is a treat, because it offers an hour of relaxation and healing, in a quiet, soothing environment. This is often just the change people need from their normal busy workdays.

Massage therapy can help relieve muscle pain, loosen tight knots, and realign your spine, with targeted massage techniques. Of course, you wouldn’t want to trust your sensitive back and neck pain to just anyone, so it is best to seek one out from a qualified practice with years of experience.
