Reclaim Advantage! Reclaim Life! Celebrate Massage Therapy Awareness Week!
The American Massage Therapy Association has declared October 23-29 Massage Therapy Awareness Week. Why should we celebrate massage therapy awareness week. After all isn't massage a luxury? Although there has been a shift in perception of the benefits of massage therapy now being supported by research, most people still believe that getting a massage is a luxury that requires time and money. While it may feel good in the moment, it's not something that has any long lasting benefits.
That is exactly WHY we are celebrating Massage Therapy Awareness Week.
Rachel DiBenedetto, one of the newest members of the team at Spratt Muscular Therapies shared this photo on Facebook:
Jeffrey Spratt,MT, Owner and Principal of Spratt Muscular Therapies is passionate about the power of positive touch and of how massage therapy, when done with right intention blending the art and science of the work, can, at the very least create positive momentum in a person's life and at its very best be life saving.
For me, massage therapy with Jeffrey and his innovative Spratt Method of Muscular Therapy, has saved my life. From deep compressions and working with an elbow at times to clear out congestion and bring relief to areas once devastated by paralytic polio and violence to a gentle touch with an intention to heal, we transform the most toxic and grotesque experiences. The compassionate presence Jeffrey brings to the work, the new memories and sensations experienced on the table cascade through me creating ripples of healing allowing for a new neural net to grow. The past and most recently severe stress in my life no longer overwhelm me. I am free to reclaim advantage and reclaim life through the powerful healing that comes with massage therapy.
The Wall Street Journal published an article in 2012, "Don't Call It Pampering: Massage Therapy Wants to be Medicine" citing research on the benefits of massage therapy.
The AMTA provides links to research on the benefits of massage therapy for a wide range of conditions in their article, "25 reasons to get a massage".
We are so blessed at Spratt Muscular Therapies to have the finest massage therapy professionals in Boston. Their passion, their commitment, their belief in the power of positive touch to touch a person's life and make a difference is truly remarkable. I get to sit down and interview each therapist to write their bio and from time to time to write a blog about what each one as an individual brings to the table. You can Meet the Team that is at your service to help you reclaim advantage and reclaim life through the power of positive touch and read their bios.
I celebrate how massage therapy has transformed my life each and every day giving thanks that I found my way to Jeffrey's table. I am delighted to celebrate Massage Therapy Awareness Week with this cooperative of massage therapists honoring the work that they do.
