Massage Therapy can be a helpful adjunct in treating chronic and persistent pain issues. Pain and the experience of pain is a very personal thing. Previous experience, our nervous system and our beliefs about pain all play a role in pain.
Pain can be a warning system for acute conditions and injury. It can be a protective mechanism for our body. Think touching a hot surface and then pulling away quickly.
But, there are times when pain lasts longer than the mechanical or chemical insult. The nervous system can be a large contributing factor when this occurs. When we have amplified pain systems we often have amplified nervous systems an vice versa.
Massage Therapy can be a useful way to help calm our nervous system down and provide help with chronic pain issues.
