Message therapists are angels. I swear to God. And people are noticing, too. Why, back in July of 2011, 24 percent of women and 13 percent of men reported having a massage in the past 12 months.
You can count me as one of the ninety percent of Americans who agree that having a massage can be an effective way to reduce pain. I swear, I feel like a new man every month after a body rub or chair massage from my favorite massage therapist.
Message therapists have been shown to help heal injuries as well. In fact, a massage can help quicken the healing and rehabilitation of an injury or expedite the recovery after an operation. This has been no secret either. People have known about the healing qualities of massage therapy as far back as Roman times, when Julius Caesar was reported to have received massages for treatment of his epilepsy.
There are tons of different kinds of massages that you can get as well. You can have acupressure, ayurvedic, deep tissue, sports, Swedish, shiatsu and trigger point therapy. Each one feels great, but some work better for others.
If you have not already, I recommend that you go ahead and find a masseur today so that you can start feeling great tomorrow. Whether you want a myofascial release or some reiki healing, I recommend that you go see a message therapist today.
