We at Professional Therapeutic Massages are raising funds to help the People of BVI in hurricane relief.
As we all know Hurricane Irma devastation to the islands is unimaginable, BVI is my home away from home and my friends/family have lost everything. We here at PTM are trying to help out the best we can by sending supplies down to the Islands. We have a donation site set up at our office and a can drive as well. We also have a gofundme set up. All money goes to helping purchase much needed supplies. All donations are being shipped out on tuesdays. If you would like to help us with sending supplies you may drop off items at the office Mon-Sat or donate to ihttps://www.gofundme.com/people-of-cane-garden-bay-bvi
Thank you so much for your support
Benefits of massage
Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension … some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
Insomnia related to stress
Myofascial pain syndrome
Paresthesias and nerve pain
Soft tissue strains or injuries
Temporomandibular joint pain
Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often involves caring, comfort, a sense of empowerment and creating deep connections with their massage therapist.
Despite its benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you’re trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.
