MASSAGE FOR foot/ankle pain

If your feet are aching after a long day, a foot massage can give you much-needed relief. But it doesn’t just feel good. Research shows that it has health benefits, too. It activates your nervous system, which increases feel-good brain chemicals like endorphins. In one study, people who got foot massage after surgery to remove their appendix had less pain and used fewer painkillers.

That’s not all, though. Foot massage boosts your circulation, which helps with healing and keeps your muscles and tissues healthy. That’s especially important if you have health problems that add to poor circulation or nerve damage, like diabetes.

Deep tissue massage is a safe and effective method of back pain relief and preventing further problems.

ACUPUNCTURE for LOWER back pain:


Massage for any muscle injury is important, but particularly so for calf muscles. After the acute stage of healing has passed, massage will help stimulate blood flow, mobilize the muscle fibers, and release areas of muscle spasm.
Another major benefit of massage, particularly in the latter stages, is to soften newly formed scar tissue and help align new fibers. Once you have recovered from injury then you should continue to have regular massage. A skilled massage therapist can identify tight areas of the muscle, which if left may risk causing future injury.
