BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
Thinking of booking a massage and need a better reason than it feels great? Let’s face it, massage therapy can do much more than just relax you. Here are 9 key benefits of why you need to book your next massage.
1. Stress Buster
One of the most noted effects of massage is a greater feeling of calm and relaxation. It reduces both emotional and physical stress.
2. Eases Muscle Pain
By increasing the blood flow to the tissues and releasing the tension, massage not only helps alleviate the pain, but can also help eliminate toxins and oxygenate the cells.
3. Immunity Booster
Due to the decrease in stress hormones, your immune system has a chance to work more efficiently, without impairment.
4. Decreased Anxiety
The soothing, pampering benefits of massage encourage the release of endorphins – the wonderful chemicals that give us the feel-good factor.
5. Deeper Sleep
Not only can massage encourage a restful sleep, it effects delta waves; brain waves connected to deep sleep to reach a deeper REM.
6. Relieves Headaches
A headache is caused by tight neck and shoulders a lot of the time. Next time one hits, schedule yourself a massage and decrease the tension in those areas.
7. Improves Flexibility
Massage improves flexibility as it improves circulation to the muscles, which will improve circulation to the muscles, allowing them to repair any damage.
8. Increases Circulation
Tensed muscles restrict blood and lymph flow. This causes wastes like uric and lactic acid to build up in the muscles. The gentle pressure of massage clears waste products in the muscles.
9. Better Posture
Massage helps relieve a lot of tensions, particularly in the neck and shoulder areas, common in those who sit a lot or use a computer at work.
