A pre or post-surgery massage is a specialized therapeutic treatment designed to support individuals before or after surgical procedures. Pre-surgery massages aim to prepare the body physically and mentally for the upcoming operation, while post-surgery massages aid in the recovery process.

Pre-surgery massages involve gentle, soothing techniques that help reduce anxiety, promote relaxation, and improve circulation. This can lead to reduced swelling, enhanced tissue flexibility, and improved overall well-being, setting a positive foundation for surgery. Post-surgery massages are tailored to address the specific needs of individuals recovering from surgical procedures. These massages often involve gentle, non-invasive techniques to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, lymphatic drainage and encourage the body’s natural healing processes. Post-surgery massages can aid in scar tissue management, improve range of motion, and provide much-needed relaxation during the recovery phase. Both pre and post-surgery massages are typically conducted by skilled and certified massage therapists who work closely with healthcare professionals to ensure safe and effective care. These massages offer a holistic approach to surgical recovery, contributing to a smoother healing journey and enhanced overall comfort.

Why Massage Matters in Mental Health

In the United States, almost half of adults will experience a mental health challenge during their lifetime. A growing body of research is supporting the positive impact of massage therapy for relief of stress, anxiety, and depression. In fact, many studies indicate it can provide benefits similar to psychotherapy for certain conditions. Read on to learn more about the ways massage can improve mental health and well-being.

Research supports that massage can relieve stress in psychiatric patients, those with chronic pain, cancer patients, children with illnesses, patients with generalized anxiety disorder, the elderly, and healthy adults.

Research published in Applied Nursing Research shows that back massage given during chemotherapy can significantly reduce anxiety and acute fatigue.

A study published in Military Medicine reports that military veterans indicated significant reductions in ratings of anxiety, worry, depression, and physical pain after massage. The analysis also suggests declining levels of tension and irritability following massage.

Massage and Anxiety/Depression

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, over 40 million adult Americans suffer from anxiety disorders. Anxiety can negatively shape the quality of life for individuals affected. Massage therapy can be an effective treatment by elevating neurotransmitters associated with lowering anxiety and decreasing hormones associated with increasing anxiety and depression.

The effect of massage therapy on trait anxiety and depression is virtually the same as those routinely found in the research studies of psychotherapy for people with the same conditions.

Research indicates that massage can improve mood and reduce depression in those living with chronic pain, as well as in cancer patients, pregnant women, and people living with chronic disease.

One in five Americans are impacted by Seasonal Affective Disorder (depression); leaving many people feeling depressed and lethargic. Studies show that regular massages can improve mood and reset circadian rhythms, leading to improved mood, better sleep, and more energy.
