Today we are so burdened by stress that it begins to accumulate in our body. What starts with a slight tension in the shoulders can quickly lead to back pain and headaches. After that, your back pain may sink further to the lower back, because you unconsciously start to adopt different postures with your body to counteract the discomfort. And because you are going to adopt a different sitting position, you may start to suffer from your hips again. That pain in your hips then leads to a sciatica-like pain that radiates to your legs. Then you will also change your walking position, causing calves and shins to suffer. And this can continue to build up for a long time, until you never feel good again. And suddenly you are in constant pain.
Taking time regularly for a massage can treat those initial discomfort before it gets that far. Experts estimate that about 90% of diseases are stress-related. Tackling stress before it gets out of hand can save you a lot of pain and a lot of money in the long run.
How can massage help?
For example, you can visit your massage therapist when you feel that you are starting to get a migraine. Although it is not always easy to get a last minute appointment, we always try to do everything possible to help you further. Calling for an appointment is therefore certainly recommended, even if the online agenda seems full at first sight. For people who suffer from chronic migraines, regular massage can reduce the frequency and severity of the pain. A massage affects your hormone and endorphin levels, which can ensure a more normal chemistry in your brain. For very severe chronic migraines, we recommend seeking a massage therapist who specializes in headaches or migraines.

Relief from joint pain
Joint pains have various causes. These are some of the most common. Sometimes joints hurt because the surrounding muscles are too tight, causing an overload on the joint. Sometimes the muscles are too loose, allowing too much movement in the joints. Both causes can be addressed fairly easily by massage, by focusing on the muscles responsible for the pain.
Osteoarthritis is associated with the breakdown of the cartilage between the joints. This is quite common with aging. Massage can be helpful for this type of joint pain as it helps loosen tense muscles around the joints and light mobilizations can provide a wider range of motion. However, massage should not be used in acute inflammation of the joints. That means when there is swelling, redness, or warmth around the joints.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that mainly affects women and the cause of which is unknown. In RA, there are periods of acute inflammation and periods of remission. Massage is useful during periods of remission, but should not be given in acute inflammation. In RA, massage can help by relaxing the soft tissue around the joints and increasing mobility. Also to soothe and relax the person with RA themselves. This in turn can reduce the number of flare-ups.
