Utilizing various techniques including myofascial release, deep tissue, trigger point and Swedish, massage therapy can be a perfect addition to acupuncture in order to treat various issues. Research has found that massage can have positive effects on many different conditions including musculoskeletal pain, cancer, emotional or mental health conditions and pregnancy. Massage can manually release adhesions (“knots”) in the muscle tissue to release tight and tense areas where stress is held. It also works to increase circulation to areas of pain and disease as well as releasing endorphins (pain killers) and trigger certain actions to help the body fight health problems naturally without medications. The human body’s natural healing abilities are enhanced by the combination of massage and acupuncture therapy.
