DALLAS, TX–Don’t let daily pain keep you from the life you want to live.

“A professional massage therapist can help reduce the pain that comes with chronic conditions – arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines, and lower back problems,” said CG Funk, vice president of industry relations and product development for Massage Envy Limited, the leading provider of massage therapy in the U.S.

A study published by the Annals of Behavioral Medicine found that those receiving massages had better-quality sleep and fewer migraine headaches than participants who didn’t. Effects lasted up to three weeks after therapy ended.

The same study reported that massage therapy was more effective in relieving back pain than acupuncture and spinal modification. It even appeared to reduce the use of painkillers by 36 percent.

Massage Envy says that massage therapy is a natural and effective pain management solution. Massage therapy can provide all the relief necessary without the need for pain killing drugs.

Massage plays an important role in achieving a pain free lifestyle by utilizing various types of massage, such as Swedish, deep tissue, or trigger point therapy. By receiving one of the many massage techniques and modalities, one can rejuvenate and refresh the mind while improving joint movement, and increasing the flow of blood and nutrients to muscles and other tissue.

At Massage Envy, an introductory one-hour massage session (a 50-minute massage and time for consultation and dressing) is just $39. Memberships are available for $49 per month and include a one-hour massage session. Members can also enjoy unlimited additional one-hour massage sessions at the $39 member rate.
