Massage Therapy – Antidote for Pain

Massage Therapy – Antidote for Pain

Research suggests that massage therapy is uniquely positioned to help alleviate pain in patients. A meta-analysis study on massage therapy for pain directed by the Samueli Institute found that massage significantly improved pain, anxiety, and other health-related quality of life issues. Massage therapy was also effective for reducing the severity of pain in patients undergoing surgery.

The medical community has teamed up with colleagues specializing in alternative methods of therapy. This has helped the affordability of treatment for these clients and patients. One example is rheumatoid arthritis. Historically, at the first sign of pain or stiffness, many people would consider scheduling an appointment with their doctor. Today, however, medical doctors are recommending alternative methods like massage therapy as a possible solution to chronic pain and the loss of range of motion associated with RA.

The Soma Institute is teaming up with the Chicagoland healthcare community to offer the only school in the U.S. with a Clinical Massage Therapy Diploma. Soma believes in massage with a purpose. Classes are led by seasoned massage professionals who guide students through the major aspects of massage practice; these include bodywork, hydrotherapy, and sports massage. Soma also offers the industry support it takes to embark on a rewarding career in clinical massage therapy.
