The Power of Healing Hands
If you think massage is an indulgence of the very rich, think again. Therapeutic massage is now
becoming recognized as a useful non-drug technique for alleviating a number of ailments or rejuvenating
your stressed-out body, especially for women. And all you have to do is lie serenely on a padded table.
"Massage is a great way to recharge your batteries, especially for women who expend vast amounts of
energy taking care of others at home, in the community or on the job," says Shawne Bryant, M.D.,
gynecologist and certified massage therapist in Virginia Beach, Virginia. "Massage fosters a woman's
physical, mental and spiritual well-being in a way that few other therapies or stress-busting activities
can." And, she adds, the benefits of massage begin the minute that your appointment begins.
"You've set aside an un interruptible hour just for you. That alone is a powerful healing message, which
for most women is too often denied," says Dr. Bryant.
A NECESSITY, NOT A LUXURY
"Massage clearly induces physiological changes that not only make you feel better but also reduce
stress hormones and enhance immune function," says Tiffany Field, Ph.D., professor of pediatrics,
psychology and psychiatry at the University of Miami School of Medicine. As director and founder of
the Touch Research Institute at the school, Dr. Field has conducted extensive research on the
physiological benefits of massage.
Massage can allow quicker recovery from physical stress and trauma and help eliminate the post-workout
buildup of lactic acid, a byproduct of exertion that causes muscle aches, writes licensed massage therapist
Thomas Claire, author of Bodywork: What Type of Massage to Get-And How to Make the Most of It.
Dr. Bryant says that more research studies need to be developed on the benefits of massage therapy.
But massage may work because it increases circulation.
"When you increase the blood supply to the massaged area, you increase the delivery of oxygen and
nutrients to the tissues, and you facilitate the removal of waste products," says Dr. Bryant. "In addition,
increased circulation promotes healing by increasing the cells involved with fighting infection and disease."
"There are good studies showing that massage decreases the lymph-related swelling that many women
experience following mastectomies," says Adriane Fugh-Berman, M.D., former head of field investigations
for the Office of Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. And,
she says, studies showing that your urine output increases following a massage might mean that
massage speeds your body's waste-removal process.
A NATURAL AID FOR EMOTIONAL HEALING
Other practitioners recommend massage for women under emotional stress.
"Just think about the act of stopping yourself from crying," says Ben E. Benjamin, Ph.D., muscular
therapist and president of The Muscular Therapy Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. "It's physical as
well as emotional. You contract muscles all over your body to make yourself stop crying, and those
contractions can lead to stiffness and soreness over time."
"The same thing happens when you get angry, tense or scared," says Dr. Benjamin. "Eventually, these
negative emotions are stored in your tissues. Massage-also referred to as therapeutic bodywork
can reduce tension formed in the body by these repressed emotions."
