Healing Hands

Arthritis is a condition that touches over 50 million Americans.  The condition is an inflammation of the joints that causes swelling, pain and stiffness. There are currently over 100 types of arthritis.

One treatment that seems to be decreasing the pain in arthritis sufferers is massage.  When a person receives massage, it has the ability to relax the muscles.  Massage research has been shown to increase serotonin which is a natural chemical produced by the body to alleviate pain.  Arthritis sufferers should receive massage treatment when they are not experiencing a flare up, otherwise the massage could be painful.

Massage therapy does not cure arthritis but it can be a solution to allow people to live a more comfortable, active life.
