Massage can help to relieve psychological stress, improve the mood, manage various levels of pain, relieve a migraine or sinus headache, and improve circulation.
When muscle strain is present, caused by a sports injury or some sort of accident, a combination of both cold therapy and massage can have a lot of benefits to minimizing pain and discomfort.
Because of this, ice massage therapy sessions are normally only five to ten minutes, rather than the twenty minutes recommended for regular cold therapy.
There are many methods for creating the proper ice for ice therapy, but the easiest, most portable, and most effect method is using a portable ice massager such as the Ice-Up massager.
