Are You Taking Full Advantage of Your Massage Therapy Benefits?
Registered massage therapy is recognized as an important part of a health maintenance plan, which is why most insurance policies provide partial or full coverage for massage therapy treatment that is completed by a registered massage therapist.
Massage therapy is a valuable treatment option that has been proven to help patients:
- Reduce or eliminate pain
- Improve joint mobility
- Improve circulation
- Improve immune system functioning
- Increase lymphatic drainage
- Reduce depression and anxiety
- Reduce tension within muscles
- Increase body awareness
Massage therapy benefits people of all ages and activity levels, including prenatal and post natal patients. While massage therapy benefits people who are injured, ill and stressed, its real strength lies in prevention.
Check with your health insurance plan to learn more about your massage therapy coverage. Many employees receive massage therapy benefits through work, but never use them. These benefits can be used towards regular massage therapy appointments which can help maintain health and prevent future injury.
What Should You Expect At Your First Massage?
There is more to massage therapy than relaxation. The tension spots in our bodies that are knotted, tight or painful often hold lactic acid and other toxins. Manual soft tissue therapy and deep tissue massage helps the body release these toxins.
At your first appointment your registered massage therapist will review your medical history, current health concerns and discuss your health goals and treatment options. Depending on your needs your registered massage therapist will use one ore more of these common therapies:
- Deep moist heat to help relax your tissues and muscles
- A therapeutic (light touch) massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage which creates a pumping effect and releases toxins throughout the lymphatic system
- Deep tissue massage to penetrate deeper muscles
