Massage and Pain Relief

Receiving a massage is historically one of the best things to do for pain, and when you’re feeling stiff, sore, or tired. Sometimes we see clients when they are at their pain-tolerance limit and are seeking relief. Some of these clients are also seeking alternatives to the use of pain medication, and feel massage is a great option.

Whether it be a massage, a physical therapy session, a chiropractic adjustment, a soak in the hot tub, or a jaunt in the steam room, there are many options for pain relief that do not involve medication.

Pain medication is a temporary solution and is not recommended for long-term use. The use of pain medication in the proper context under supervision from your physician can help some people. But often times, the fear of side effects or even addiction keep many people from going down that road. In today’s society, we all seem to know someone who has succumb to addiction to pain medication. While it is a touchy subject, it is necessary to discuss its impact, and offer alternatives.

At Blue Garden Wellness, we want our clients to feel their best, and support them in their wellness journey. Massages will lower the stress-causing chemical cortisol. Massages will also help with pain, recovery from injuries, sleeplessness and more. We strive to provide natural pain relief for our clients through massage, carefully-selected products, and effective tools like Kinesio tape and techniques like stretching.
