Massage Therapy: Worth It?

Massage Therapy

SSOR believes that treating the whole person is imperative to physical health and well-being.  In physical therapy, we often discuss pain and stress management, home exercise plans, wellness, and workplace modifications to help people minimize pain and maximize function.  Because we believe that treating the whole person is so important, SSOR offers massage therapy at both the Overland Park and Prairie Village locations by a Licensed Massage Therapist.  An added benefit of coming to SSOR for your massage therapy sessions is that there are always Licensed Physical Therapists present to help answer any questions or give you advice on any physical maladies you may be dealing with.  Truly, we’re a one-stop shop for physical therapy and massage therapy.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

The benefits of massage are endless.  They range from being physically soothing to emotionally comforting. Massage therapy is truly a great ally to add to your weekly or monthly healthcare regimen.
Some of the physiological benefits are:

  • Helps clients who suffer from anxiety and depression disorders.
  • Massage help increase the quality of sleep from clients who battle with insomnia.
  • Improves concentration while simultaneously reducing fatigue from a grueling work week.
  • It is the natural pain killer. The body releases chemicals

Physical Benefits of Massage Therapy

  • Helps alleviate those general aches and pains. From those achy feet, to your stiff lower back, and the shoulders and neck that may hold all of your stress.
  • Relieve headaches and migraine pain
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sport injuries
  • Increases Joint flexibility
  • Reduces scar tissue and improve circulation to tissues and vital organs

By no means is the above an exhaustive list of the benefits of massage therapy.  Regular massages help make the benefits of massage greater and longer lasting.  Even though the stigma associated with massage therapy is that it is a luxury reserved only for the privileged, SSOR offers affordable massage therapy packages.  More importantly, your hard-earned money goes a little farther.  Our massages are one-hour and we mean one-hour – not 45-50 minutes with 10-15 minutes of changing time.  Our team of physical therapists highly encourages regular massages to maximize your physical well-being and an integral part of a healthcare regimen.
We have locations in Overland Park and Prairie Village to serve you.  Give us a call!
