Massage Therapy: Why It’s Great

Massage Therapy: Why It’s Great

Make An Appointment

Massage therapy has come a long way in the last few years especially when you consider the fact that in the past people used to only think of it as an alternate form of treatment. Of course, now, it has become a part of the mainstream.

In fact, insurance companies even offer coverage for this kind of treatment. Massage treatment involves hands on techniques, which relieve pain, improve blood circulation, and reduce stress.

Interested? Well we are just getting started. Let’s take an in depth look at some of additional reasons because of which this form of therapy is considered so great:

Stress Relief

We all have heard how stress is a bad thing and how it can adversely affect your health but do we really know what causes it?

In simple terms, stress refers to an individual’s inability to cope with everyday demands. It can also be described as something which an individual perceives as a threat to their well-being.

Massage Therapy

So where does massage therapy come in? The entire point of massage therapy is to help the person relax. It releases tension in the muscles and boosts energy levels. It makes it easier for you to deal with the pressures of everyday life.

It’s Relaxing

On a related note, when you are stressed, your body produces stress hormones, which subsequently lead to weight gain, headaches, and digestive problems.

Massage therapy can help counter this problem since it reduces the level of cortisol in your body. As a result, your body relaxes and starts healing.

Furthermore, massage therapy also relieves tension in your muscles. It improves blood circulation in affected areas and provides your body with nutrients, which include oxygen. Moreover, it reduces stiffness in joints and improves flexibility.

It boosts your immune system and releases endorphins in your body. As a result, you get relief from pain and feel better.

It Improves Your Posture

How many of us spend our entire day slouching over our computer screens? Have you ever wondered how badly it can affect your health?

A poor posture can lead to serious health problems, which include chronic back pain and bulging discs.

Massage therapy helps prevent this by improving the alignment of your spine. It allows your body to maintain a natural position and gives your joints freedom to move.

These are just some of the reasons because of which massage therapy is considered so great. If you are looking for a facility that offers this form of treatment, we suggest that you get in touch with us.

I thought I was going to have to deal with plantar fasciitis for the rest of my life. I had done all the recommended steps from orthotics, icing, stretching, massage…nothing worked. I saw Jason. He said 5 treatments with shockwave therapy should significantly improve the problem. I said no way. In a way, I was right-it took 6 treatments but I’m pain free. Amazing. Great service and a product that works.
Thank you to Dr. Nanda and his great team of specialist for taking care me. Very friendly and knowledgable!
Here is what I say about my shock treatments. I have had chronic back pain for over 40 years. Nothing has worked for me and I have tried many, many types of back treatments. Nothing worked. I was going to go for laser spine surgery. Divergent was going to be my last “try” before laser surgery. I went in with absolutely NO expectations. I had one treatment, walked out thinking “okay, my back doesn’t hurt but that won’t last.” Well guess what? It works!!!! I have had 5 treatments since May, 2017 and I have no back pain. None! Without Divergent and Dr. Jason, my life would still be a painful one. Jason, you have saved me. Anyone with any pain needs to go to Divergent. With many thanks to all of you.
I have been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis in both of my feet for over a year now and the pain was just too unbearable to deal with. I did all the recommended stretching, icing and other treatments that just didn’t help. So, I said enough is enough as I deserve to feel better than this and made the appointment at Divergent Health Care.
