Massage is an excellent, non-invasive way to relieve back tension and its associated pain. Massage Therapy for back pain can also be a helpful relaxation technique because it releases endorphins (the happy hormone)!

Many physicians in the medical community are promoting massage as a viable option for reducing back pain, or for the massage to be used in conjunction with other procedures to facilitate faster recovery time. Massage can also help with overall health concerns and provides psychological benefits, including:

  • Recovery of sore muscles or injury by helping the blood supply provide nutrients to the tissues
  • Relieving tension “knots” in the back or shoulder muscles, which many people acquire due to stress
  • Improvement in the quality of sleep
  • Releasing endorphins which help reduce symptoms of depression
  • Stress reduction
  • Elimination of toxins in the muscles
