Massage Therapy and Pinched Nerve

Can massage therapy help with a pinched nerve?

A pinched nerve can occur in any part of the body and happens when there is increased pressure applied to it by its surrounding tissues (muscles, tendons, bones, intervertebral disc or cartilage).

This pressure creates an uncomfortable sensation causing numbness, tingling, weakness in nearby muscles and joints, pain, etc.

Massage therapy, which places gentle pressure around the pinched nerve area can aid in the relief of tension and help reduce pain.

A full-body massage can also help your body relax and aid healing.

Note: A deep tissue massage is not recommended for a pinched nerve.

As a massage therapist, you are passionate about helping people by providing hands-on caregiving massage therapy that offers a balance between empathy, compassion, and professionalism.

Having comprehensive liability insurance for massage therapy also guarantees a level of confidence and is a best business practice.
