Massage Therapy has long been a practice I have used to help people. When I first began my practice not many people understood how beneficial massage is for people. Massage used to be something reserved for people at elite spas. I had to work hard, out networking and introducing the concept of massage therapy to people in the Brevard County area.
In todays’ society, massage therapy has become so mainstream there are massage companies on every corner.
“According to the American Massage Therapy Association, up to 25 percent of American adults had a massage at least once during 2016-2017. And, they have a wide range of reasons for doing so. More and more people — especially baby boomers — recognize the health benefits of massage. They choose from among many massage styles to get relief from symptoms or to heal injuries, to help with certain health conditions, and to promote overall wellness.”
I believe those statistics have ticked way up over the past two years. As more people find alternative methods of pain and stress relief, Massage Therapy and Aroma therapy will become more and more prevalent. And now, with the legalization of Cannabis products for pain relief and possibly other uses, there is not telling what will come of all of this. I am encouraged with what I see and hear.
