Peer-reviewed medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include pain relief, reduced trait anxiety and depression, and temporarily reduced blood pressure, heart rate, and state anxiety. Theories behind what massage might do include blocking nociception (gait control theory), activating the parasympathetic nervous system which may stimulate the release of endorphins and serotonin, preventing fibrosis or scar tissue, increasing the flow of lymph, and improving sleep. Here at American Physical Therapy we have an entire team of well trained, licensed massage therapists that are proficient in a number of massage techniques ranging from therapeutic deep tissue massage to relaxing Swedish massage.
