HEALTH TIP OF THE MONTH

Exploring the Benefits of Massage Therapy
It’s the end of the day. Your back is tight. Your feet are aching from standing all day. Your shoulders are tense. You think about how wonderful a massage would feel.

Massage therapy can be a wonderful solution to stress and tension, and Mayo Clinic lauds massage as a compliment to standard treatment for many medical conditions and situations. When administered properly by a licensed professional, massage therapy can bring relief from many conditions, including anxiety, headaches, insomnia, nerve pain, and sports or exercise injuries.

Below are some tips to finding a good massage therapist and knowing what to expect when you do.

  • Ask for their qualifications. State licensing should be displayed or available for you to view. Don’t be afraid to ask questions!
  • Set appropriate boundaries. Undress only to your comfort level. If you have tender areas, alert your therapist. Most places have pre-therapy questionnaires to help therapists understand your specific needs.
  • Your comfort should always be priority. Everything from the pressure of the massage, to the light, room temperature, and music should feel soothing. If it isn’t, speak up.
  • Finally, remember that massage therapy is not meant to replace medical care. You should inform your physician if you are interested in massage therapy and make sure you are healthy enough to participate in massage.

If massage therapy sounds like a solution to tension problems or stress relief, the Belleville Health and Sports Center welcomes any questions you might have about scheduling your appointment with a licensed therapist. Call (618)398-2778 or visit www.bhsc.info for more information.
