How Massage Therapy Can Promote Long-Term Healing

How Massage Therapy Can Promote Long-Term Healing

 

While athletes have long known that massage therapy can help relieve pain and promote recovery, scientists really didn’t know why it worked. However, a group of Canadian researchers may have found the answer.

Scientists at McMaster University in Hamilton, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) website, have discovered evidence that massage therapy sends anti-inflammation messages to muscle cells, blunting pain in a manner similar to that of anti-inflammatory pills. The website cited an article in Science Translational Medicine, a journal which published a study that looked at the effects of therapy versus no treatment in 11 men who were athletes. The study, according to the CBC website, also showed that the anti-inflammatory signals helped muscle cells to produce mitochondria, which convert food into energy.

Relief in Your Hands

One of the most convenient and effective ways to get the massage therapy you need is by using the RangeRoller™ from Medi-Dyne. This product is designed to target trigger points and knots, providing a deep massage for both the inner and outer portions of tissues and muscles. Not only does it provide immediate relief, it also promotes long-term healing through the following methods:

  • Increasing circulation
  • Relieving knots in muscles
  • Warming the muscles
  • Eliminating scar tissue

If you suffer from fatigue, muscle pain, cramps, spasms or similar conditions, the RangeRoller can help prevent injury and also help your recovery from high-stress workouts. If you are interested in ordering this product, visit the Medi-Dyne e-store or give us a call at 800-810-1740.
