What Does Massage Therapy Do In Caring For Lower Back Pain?

Can Massage Help Lower Back Pain?

Aching lower back pain can be debilitating and it can be a sign that something is wrong, like a strained muscle or ligament. However, it can also be caused by external factors, such as poor posture or stress. Massage therapy has been shown to help manage both acute and chronic lower back pain by relaxing the muscles, improving blood flow to the area and reducing inflammation in damaged tissue

What Is The Most Common Reason For Lower Back Pain?

Lower back pain affects over two-thirds of the population and is one of the most common reasons for seeking medical attention. There are many causes, including muscle tension, muscle spasms, or overuse (heavy lifting) injuries. This can cause poor posture and prevent good breathing habits, which increases stress on your lower spine. Lower back pain can be treated with some simple techniques that help to relieve stress and tension, but it is important to identify exactly what caused your condition.

What Is The Fastest Way To Relieve Lower Back Pain?

Massage therapy is a hands-on modality that uses gentle movement to stretch connective tissues and allow your body to function at its best. Massage therapy can improve circulation, relieve pain and tension, reduce stress and anxiety, and help prevent injuries by improving range of motion and flexibility and can be an effective treatment for lower back pain. Certain muscles like the core, and glutes can also be really beneficial in restoring functionality to the hips and low back.

What Type of Massage Should I Get For Lower Back Pain?

Different types of massage have their own benefits and limitations, which depend on your needs and preferences. Deep-tissue massage has been found to help lower back pain. Myofascial release can also help relieve muscle tension, improve circulation and reduce stress. All are offered here at IMMERSE Modern Massage.

Massage Can Help Manage and Decrease Lower Back Pain and Other Associated Symptoms

Massage, although highly beneficial for all types of muscle pain, is not a cure for lower back pain. A massage can help relieve symptoms and reduce your overall levels of discomfort associated with LBP (lower back pain) but it is still important to have regular medical checkups and treatment if necessary in order to ascertain the cause of your lower back problems and resolve the issue.

A massage can help to loosen stiff muscles, improve joint range of motion, and increase your body’s overall flexibility through the process of increasing circulation (rupturing those adhesions that occur in the muscles and tendons) to your back region by allowing for a deeper penetration into them when the therapist presses on them with their fingertips.

We understand that to get the maximum benefits from your massages, you’ll need to do your homework outside of our sessions. Stretching is an essential component of practicing self-care and improving your mobility as it does help with muscle flexibility, strength, and mobility.

    Wow! My massage with Mason was healing on so many levels! He addressed the spots of tension and diligently worked to remind my muscles that it’s okay to relax. He was very attentive to my needs and comfort.
    Immerse is definitely an appropriate
    … More name for this space as you are enveloped in delightfully warm infrared heat (through amethyst crystals!), the soothing sounds of a waterfall, and a sound bath of vibrations coming directly from the table!
    The thoughtful intention put in to making Immerse Modern Massage the healing environment that is it is apparent and very much appreciated!

    Wow! Walking into Immerse Modern Massage, my entire body immediately relaxed right at the front door. The aromatherapy is so intoxicating and soothing, and the ambiance is very nice. Walking into the treatment room was even better. They … More really did such a good job with the place! Not to mention the massage table! Omg, it felt so incredible to be sandwiched in between healing frequencies, warmth, and high vibrations. I can’t wait to go back!!! I was impressed to say the least.

    Such a lovely experience from beginning to end. The lobby was beautifully decorated with plants, and Mason greeted me with such warmth. The table vibrates with music and is so comfortable and warm. The weighted blankets helped me feel so … More cozy and relaxed. The technique and grounded presence Mason offers is excellent. I especially enjoyed the warm scented towel on my face and neck at the end of the massage. So rejuvenating and relaxing. I felt calm and peaceful. Wholeheartedly recommend!

    Entering the space I immediately felt calm, the lighting and ambiance was perfect for relaxing. The warmth, low light and wooden ceiling made me feel like I was in a sauna. Mason greeted me and made me feel comfortable as we entered the … More massage room. The bed was heated, with weighted blanket and calming music vibrated the entire bed. I melted away as mason massaged my whole body, taking care to leave me mostly covered under the warm blanket the entire time. He also used heated towels and a wonderful essential oil blend. I felt truly relaxed and my whole body vibrated with warmth and comfort. Would definitely come back again!

    Mason is awesome! I just had an amazing massage experience and loved it. He attentively addressed the tension spots in my body and worked through them. The massage table vibrates synced up to the meditative music which was sooo relaxing … More and helped me be super dropped into the moment. The weighted blanket and the warm scented towels were another highlight. Highly recommend. Thank you, Mason!
