Massage Therapy: Ways to Manage Pain
Getting a massage can be much more beneficial than simply relaxing. When done properly, massage therapy boosts serotonin and natural endorphins in your body to improve mood and reduce pain. It also is a great way to relieve stress — and stress is a major contributing factor to making chronic and existing pain worse. Don’t underestimate the power of a good massage; it also allows time for contemplation, relaxation, and even meditation — all of which are beneficial to mental and physical health.
