Can massage therapy help in easing Pain?

Totally! Massage therapy like reflexology can help you ease that pain by using finger pressure and techniques like kneading and rubbing to promote relaxation and healing in the body. It believes that putting pressure on the "reflex areas/points" (on the hands and feet) can balance your nervous system and stimulate endorphins (natural pleasure response) which reduce pain, stress, and discomfort.

Another great way of easing your pain is the hot stone massage. Hot stone massages are very effective in reducing pain which is associated with a strained muscle or a sprain. It can give you instant relief from inflammatory conditions like acute bursitis too and well, the American Massage Therapy Association can vouch for it.

Is massage therapy helpful in improving your Circulation?

The strokes (massage style) that the therapists use to rub the smooth hot stones or the warm essential oil over your body helps in boosting circulation by thermal stimulation. This improvement in circulation is of not just blood but also the lymph in your body. Well, the improvement of circulation in blood and lymph in your body helps in complete body detox and holistic healing too.
