In an effort to help everyone become better informed with massage therapy, the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) started the National Massage Therapy Week. The celebration began on October 19th and ends on October 25th. During this week Massage Therapy organizations like the AMTA, Emassagechair, and Massage Therapists, are doing what they can to help people learn about the benefits of massage. Here at Emassagechair we're huge advocates for the benefits of massage therapy and understand how important it can be for many different people. Massage therapy is definitely becoming more well known amongst people who suffer chronic illnesses as they look for more natural remedies. The scientific community has also started to become more interested in the benefits of massage as they use it with other methods for treating illnesses.
Based on the power of touch, massage has been known to make people feel good for over a millennia. Based on advancements in science and the growing culture of people looking for more natural remedies, scientists have joined in and are participating in applying their approach. The goal is to fully understand all the different methods, and how it can effect healthy people, athletes, people with chronic diseases like Fibromyalgia, and in helping aid in cancer treatment. Doctors are starting to adopt this methodology as well. Greg Gray L.M.T., M.M.P. of Pearland is also helping spread the word, and mentions how Massage isn't just for relaxation any more. Gray states “The normal relaxation massage will always be there,” he said. “Studies are showing that massage is also effective in medical applications, such as muscle repair, correcting carpal tunnel and even cancer treatment. In fact, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center’s Integrative Medicine Program now includes a massage component.” This is huge news for the massage and medical community, as well as people looking for natural remedies.
