Do you suffer from symptoms of long COVID?
Massage therapy may be able to help
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Post-COVID conditions are a wide range of new, returning, or ongoing health problems that people experience after first being infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.
Recent data shows that nearly one in five, or 20% of American adults who have had COVID-19, still experience long COVID symptoms. There is no test for long COVID and symptoms between individuals vary widely.
The benefits of massage therapy for post-COVID conditions include:
- Easing of muscle pain and aches
- Improving sleeplessness and fatigue levels
- Reducing headaches and digestive problems
- Lessening symptoms of depression and anxiety
Erin has taken multiple continuing education classes to learn more about post-acute sequelae of COVID (PASC) to be able to help COVID long-haulers find some relief with massage therapy. Schedule a 60-or 75-minute session to see how massage therapy treatment may be able to assist you in relieving some of your post-COVID symptoms.
