Why Half of American Population Receives Massage Therapy

 

Medical issues are all the rage and it’s been stated as of late that ‘Baby Boomers’ are having a far more difficult time in life than their parents had because of illnesses – many surrounding skeletal and muscular issues – that are taking over. This is also not a good outlook for the next generation, seeing as that most all of us will be suffering from muscle pain, pinched nerves, etc., from sitting in front of a computer every day for hours on end.

Massage is one ‘medical’ area that has increased in size and will continue to, considering the ‘sit-down’ world that now reigns supreme. Massage is a great treatment for pain and muscle aches simply because it is one of the few left in this world that is a natural treatment.Massage Luxe 2-FaceLuxe- It can be utilized to cure a range of ailments and painful conditions, including the one growing larger by the minute – osteoporosis.

And being that massage has been around longer than any of us have been, we already know that it works and has no side effects like all the pills, shots and medications that are on the market today. Hundreds of cultures have used massage therapy to relieve tension as well as to enhance circulation, but it’s also coming out that in addition to all the physical benefits, massage is actually being credited with clearing the mind and enhancing the ‘soul.’ Whether or not you wish to believe this is up to you, but it is a fact that when your body feels good so does your mind. And nowadays, with over eighty styles of massage to choose from, we are finding that no matter what the damage is that we’re dealing with, there is something on hand to relieve the pain.

Pressure, movement, and the manipulation of muscles with hands, forearms, elbows, or even feet are utilized in 2013. And according to the American Massage Therapy Association, almost half of this country (and even more when speaking about Baby Boomers) are receiving massage therapy.

Relief is necessary for the aches and pains and to promote overall wellness, and there is one company – MassageLuXe – that is swiftly becoming the leader in the industry that’s making sure to bring about relief from symptoms, as well as helping or healing injuries that come from various health conditions

Do they boost your spirit, too? Well…massage does boost emotional intelligence. (No joke). When the body is doing well and feeling good, a human’s emotions – which are always on edge and do have the tendency to go a bit ‘off the charts’ every once in a while – are calmed by massage therapy, and emotional intelligence is heightened.

Charles Darwin was the one who first looked into emotional intelligence and showed that for absolute survival, your emotions have to be kept calm and in check. And in order to do this – in order to feel calm while also increasing things like memory, problem-solving, and the ability to adapt to every situation – emotional intelligence had to be helped. And when receiving massage, emotional intelligence is revived and rejuvenated.

The most common type of massage, Swedish massage therapy, is one that many choose to utilize when thinking about both physical ailments as well as emotional and intellectual balance. This is also one of many massage styles that MassageLuXe is an expert at. Soft, long, kneading strokes combined with light, rhythmic, tapping strokes on the topmost layers of muscles is what Swedish massage is all about. This is also combined with movement of the joints that can both relieve muscle tension and offer relaxation and energy. Effleurage is the smooth, gliding stroke used to relax the soft tissue; Petrissage is the rolling or kneading that follows; Friction is the name for the deep, circular movements that help increase blood flow and break down scar tissue; and then Tapotement, a short, alternating tap done with cupped hands or fingers completes the process.

Deep tissue massage is not only a key component in relaxation and aiding those physical ‘trouble spots,’ but it also increases the activity and energy in your mind. In the end, when you’re extremely happy with your massage routine at MassageLuXe, you will also have the added benefit of being well aware that you’re helping your ‘emotional intelligence’ all at the same time.
