Should I get a Massage? Why it could be the best thing you’ve ever done for your health

“We know sensory stimuli modulate nociception. Nociceptors are free nerve endings that have thermoreceptors, mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors on them. There are different types of them, but the most common types might have two or all three of those. They’re scattered all over the tissues of the body and they’re a fantastic first surveillance system”

This quote is from Lorimer Mosely, a foremost pain researcher.

New pain Science is telling us that pain is an experience and the body uses sensory receptors as part of its experience development.

Massage therapists are realizing that treating pain is more a conversation with a patients brain than a simple rub down of certain body parts. We have to make the nervous system feel safe and it will automatically reduce the pain signaling.

Massage Feels Good Because It Changes Your Gene Expression http://gizmodo.com/5882575/massage-feels-good-because-it-changes-your-gene-expression

Massage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.
What exactly are the benefits of receiving massage or bodywork treatments? Useful for all of the conditions listed below and more, massage can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.
