Sciatica can take many forms in your body. For some, it's numbness or tingling, while others experience weakness and pain all the way down to their nerves. Often, people think they must simply “live with” the pain and hope it goes away. However, massage therapy offers an amazing way to relax your nerves, heal your body, and return to your old life!
When it comes to sciatica, no one experiences pain quite the same way. That is why we do not offer a “one size fits all” treatment when it comes to massage therapy. Instead, our trained professionals will create a massage care routine that is unique to your special needs and designed to take care of your specific pain.
How does it work?
Many people do not realize that there is a specific science to massage. In the case of massage therapy, the process helps boost the production of dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin in your body. Collectively, this works to calm the nerves in your body as well as encouraging your body to heal. This is why massage therapy is so beneficial: it offers immediate pain relief which leads to long-term pain relief and, in many cases, the complete elimination of that pain!
A return to your old life
Massage therapy is a proven method of dealing with the pain associated with sciatica. In fact, there was a recent study involving 400 patients who were suffering from sciatica. The study involved giving one group massage therapy while the control group received different kinds of therapy. After ten weeks passed, the group that received massage therapy had amazing results: almost all of them reported that they had less pain and more body function, compared to only four percent using other therapies. More exciting was that over a third of the patients who received massage therapy said their pain was either completely gone or almost completely gone!
