 Benefits of Back Massage Therapy and Precaution

One of the most common complaints among adults is chronic back pain. Back trouble is so popular that people have begun seeking alternative treatments, as offered by Back Massage Hove. This has led to the development of back massage therapy which has become the favorite treatment of choice for people seeking relief from chronic back pain.


Numerous benefits are associated with back massage therapy. Although general massage is known to promote blood flow to every muscle as well as provides a pleasurable experience and relaxation, it does not offer the therapeutic value that provides relief for chronic pain.


But when back massage therapy is conducted by the specialists at Back Massage Hove, it brings instant relief to sufferers of this condition within weeks. This can only happen when therapeutic back massage procedures are applied to tackle both upper and lower back pain.

Benefits of back massage therapy

1. Endorphins are “feel good” substances or chemicals that are naturally produced in the human body. Massage increases the level of endorphins in the body, and this helps to alleviate chronic back pain.

2. Massage also enhances the supply of blood to the muscles, and this plays a significant role in the recovery of soreness in the muscles as a result of physical activities. 

3. The muscles can only relax considerably during a massage, thus increasing the range of motion. This is a huge benefit, especially if the tension in your muscles limits movement. When your muscles are also relaxed, it reduces insomnia significantly.

Precautions to take during back massage therapy 

When you receive massage therapy for your back, the pressure that is applied during the procedure must evoke relaxation responses in your muscles. If this does not occur, then your muscles may have become inflamed as a result of an acute injury. If that is the case, then massage therapy should be postponed until the inflammation diminishes. You may also need to consult a physician. 


Muscle spasms require at least four massage sessions spread over a period of six weeks. But if muscle spasms do not respond to therapy after two sessions, then seek alternative treatment.
