Study Shows Timing Of Massage Treatments Key To Neck Pain Relief

Do you (or does someone you know) suffer from chronic pain? Did you know that massage has been shown to both improve function and pain levels?

According to a recent study clients suffering from neck pain found the greatest relief by receiving therapeutic massage several times a week. Researcher Karen Sherman studied over 200 people. Some received no massage, others received thirty minute massages several times a week, others received sixty minute massages one, two or three times a week (how’d you like to be in that group?). Treatment sessions included range of motion testing and pain level assessment.

Sherman found the sixty minute session performed three times a to be the week most effective.

“people getting massage three times a week were almost five times as likely to have a clinically meaningful (meaning important or noticeable) improvement in function and over twice as likely to report a clinically meaningful decrease in pain.”


Dr. Fredrick Wilson, a spine specialist at the Cleveland Clinic, stressed the need to use a professional massage therapist.

“If done incorrectly, [massage] can actually cause muscle tightening and spasm,” he said. For neck or back pain, “it seems the training and experience make a difference in the amount of pain relief patients get,” he added.

Do you receive regular massages? I personally get some type of body work (Thai massage, myofascial release, cranio sacral) at least once a month. I view this as part of my health maintenance plan, as opposed to a once a year “treat”.

Pain relief, stress reduction, increased mobility, decreased headaches and jaw pain… want to find out what massage therapy can do for you? What are you waiting for? Contact Anne to set up your next massage today!

Benefits Of Massage Include Stress Reduction And Pain Relief

Evidence based studies show massage therapy provides:

  • Stress Reduction
  • Pain Relief
  • Lower anxiety

In this two minute video Dr. Brent Bauer of the Mayo clinic  discusses the many ways massage therapy benefits his patients. He suggests doing your homework when searching for a massage therapist, and interviewing your therapist before you first session to see if you are a good fit. He mentions the American Massage Therapy Association’s “find a practitioner” listing for AMTA certified therapists in your area.

Guess who is an AMTA member? Yours truly! Click here for my listing.

How often do you receive massage? I shoot for one a month, or every two weeks if I am working on something specific.

Call today for a complimentary consultation to see how massage therapy will benefit you!
