Massage therapy can be used alongside various therapies and treatments to enhance overall health and well-being. It complements physical therapy, chiropractic care, and sports medicine by promoting muscle relaxation, pain reduction, and improved flexibility. Additionally, it can aid in stress reduction, mental health support, and postoperative recovery. Massage therapy is often integrated into complementary medicine practices, pregnancy care, and cancer treatment support. While it offers numerous benefits, it should be used in conjunction with medical advice and treatment, ensuring a collaborative and safe approach to holistic health.
Some side effects can happen when you get a massage. Usually, people feel sore, bruised, or tired afterward. But sometimes people faint, feel dizzy or have pain where they were massaged. If any of these things happen during your massage, stop the massage and tell your massage therapist right away.
It is typically customary to undress to your comfort level for a massage therapy session, usually down to your underwear. Some types of massage may require full nudity, but the therapist will ensure you are properly draped during the session to maintain modesty and comfort. It’s important to communicate your level of comfort and undress only as much as you feel comfortable.
When deciding how frequently you should get a massage, it all boils down to what your body needs. If you’re dealing with pain or an injury, then more frequent visits could prove beneficial; however, if relaxation is the only aim here, less frequent appointments may be suitable for your situation.
