There is no better complement to a workout regimen than massage. Many people believe massage is simply for relaxation and stress reduction. While it is a great way to relieve stress, it is also beneficial in treating a wide range of conditions including muscle spasms, pain, soreness from injury, and headaches. For more information, pick up a massage brochure in the Student Recreation Center or contact the Service Desk at (208) 426-1131.
Massage works to relieve pain in a number of ways:
- by promoting muscle relaxation
- by increasing lymphatic circulation and thereby reducing inflammation
- by breaking up scar tissue and adhesions
- by promoting blood flow through the muscles
- by promoting drainage of the sinus fluids
Massage is not advisable for everyone. Those with a history of phlebitis, high blood pressure, or any other vascular disorders should not receive any type of deep muscle massage before checking with their physician. Massage should not be performed on inflamed areas or on individuals with malignant or infectious conditions.
