How a Massage can Improve your Spine Health

Massages are typically misconstrued as a stress-reliever, but along with that massages can help people with spine, back, and neck pain. Massages offer many benefits for your spine. Here’s a list of some of the benefits:

  • Reduces muscle tension: Your back may be tight which is causing your back pain. Some back injuries can cause inflammation which massage also helps to reduce.
  • Increases blood flow: It’s important to get nutrients to your spine so it can stay strong and healthy. Massage therapy especially helps those with osteoarthritis. 
  • Releases serotonin: Stress can cause your back to tense up and causes pressure on your back which leads to pain. Massages help to release serotonin which relieves stress.
