How Pain can impact your emotional well-being

All of us are affected by pain at one time or another. This category accounts for approximately 80% to 80% of all doctor visits. Current estimates suggest that 50 million Americans are suffering from chronic pain, such as:

  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • osteoarthritis
  • Shoulder and neck pain
  • fibromyalgia

You don't need to experience chronic pain in order to suffer from negative effects. People who have experienced muscle aches, shoulder or back pain, as well as temporary injuries, are likely to notice the connection between negative emotions, such as anxiety, stress, depression, or mood swings. This can have serious consequences for your health that will affect your ability to perform daily tasks at work and at home.

Not to mention that pain can interfere with your ability to do the things you love --the things that make YOU, you!

Pain is a subjective, multi-dimensional experience that every person has. It's not just that pain can affect your emotions, making you anxious or depressed. However, it could also cause anxiety and depression. You could have emotional distress or unresolved emotional baggage that is causing your pain. Talk about a problem to solve!

There is good news: there is evidence that massage therapy can be used to relieve pain and prevent it from getting worse.

What can massage do to help with all kinds of pain and combat these negative effects?

A 2016 systematic meta-analysis showed that massage therapy is beneficial and has minimal safety concerns. The American College of Physicians (ACP), has published new guidelines to treat low back pain. They recommend that massage and other complementary therapies, such as applied heat or acupuncture, be used over "costly, potentially harmful drugs."

Massage therapy can be very helpful in managing anxiety and depression, which are becoming more common in today's world. Massage therapy is often requested by patients and doctors for stress and anxiety relief.

This is no secret. According to the American Massage Therapy Association in 2019, 21% of Americans had received a massage. 52% said they were for a health or medical reason while 26% reported it was for relaxation and stress relief.

Massage therapy can be a powerful tool in managing pain, discomfort, anxiety, stress, and all the rest. That's the upside. There really is nothing to lose. It has been proven that massage is safe, effective, and without side effects.

Enjoy a massage tailored to your specific needs.
