In Pain? You MUST Try This (It works!)
For many people, it’s a four-letter word.
And if you’re waiting for Big Pharma to concoct a safe, effective treatment, don’t hold your breath.
Fortunately, you don’t need Big Pharma to KNOCK OUT stubborn pain.
Because the best treatment for pain isn’t something you’ll find in your medicine cabinet… and it’s not a pill you can take.
Yet this simple technique is improving the lives of countless Americans – and you could be next.
Some people think of massage therapy as a luxury – something you might splurge on while on vacation.
Others turn to it primarily for its stress-relieving properties.
But if you’re not utilizing massage therapy for its pain-relieving properties, you’re missing out on one of the most effective, drug-free solutions for pain.
Let’s look at a few examples.
One study shows women who receive a massage after breast cancer surgery, experience improvements in pain, mobility, and overall health. This study specifically showed the benefits of a technique called myofascial massage, which involves applying gentle, sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissues, which are the membranes surrounding your muscles.
In another study of women who had just had breast cancer surgery, chemo, or radiation, getting one Swedish massage a week for just six weeks led to significant reductions in fatigue.
Chronic low back pain is a major problem for millions of Americans… and massage can help with that, too.
In one study, just 12 weeks of massage therapy led to clinical improvements in people suffering from low back pain.
Even for those suffering from arthritis, massage has been found to be superior to other therapies when it comes to reducing pain and improving functional outcomes.
And in another study published in Annals of Family Medicine, getting a one-hour massage 2-3 times a week for one month relieved chronic neck pain.
The reason why massage is so effective is because it can help relax painful muscles, tendons, and joints. Some studies even indicate that it can help prevent pain messages from going to and from the brain.
Imagine that… a drug-free solution to many different types of pain that’s safe and effective. And the only side effect you might experience is less stress.
That’s my kind of medicine!
