more-massage-swedish-300A little wisdom can go a long way when it comes to knowing how massage therapy can help. With specific complaints from the client, a therapist can help rid the body of pain and discomfort, increase mobility and flexibility, while activating the lymphatic system; which improves general health and creates more energy, due to increased circulation.

Pain is the body’s signal that something is wrong. Often times, many issues can be prevented with a routine massage program. Stress alone can cause headaches, anxiety, sleep deprivation and compromise the immune system, which makes you more susceptible to colds and flu. The adjacent chart shows several areas of lifestyles, related symptoms and respective remedies. Symptoms can vary from simple nagging aches and pain to burning sensations, shooting pain or heat, throbbing, tingling, numbness and the loss of ability of full range of motion. For example, if one is unable to turn one’s head from side to side.

It is said that knowledge is power, and when that knowledge is put into use, it becomes wisdom. Be wise this Earth month and invest in the single most important thing, your health. Without it, you can do nothing. With it, you can move mountains, maybe even save the planet!
