Benefits of Massage Therapy
From as early as 2700 B.C., massage was used by several ancient cultures to treat injuries and cure deadly conditions, and became the preferred treatment for sports and war injuries. Massage Therapy continues to hold its place as one of the most effective, safe and natural ways to treat mental and physical ailments, such as stress, pain, anxiety and depression.
One of the biggest reasons people get massages is to relieve pain. Whether it’s chronic pain from an illness or cramps from excessive exercising, massage therapy is the key to relieving pain in a holistic, noninvasive manner.
Depending on your health, level of pain and exercise routine, there are various types of massages to trigger certain tissues and relieve different levels of pain.
Massages provide pain relief through applied pressure, muscle relaxation and increased circulation. With regular massage therapy sessions, patients can reduce muscle cramps and spasms, stiffness and prevent headaches and backaches.
Massage therapy also raises the body’s production and release of endorphins that enhance your mood and boost immunity. Reducing your stress levels will do wonders for your current mental and physical health, while preventing potential diseases or stress-related conditions.
Get your blood flowing and stimulate the lymphatic systems through regular massage therapy.
When the massage therapist applies pressure, stimulates muscles and relieves pain, your circulatory system is hard at work pumping oxygen and nutrients into tissues and organs. Increased circulation improves blood flow, removes waste away from muscles, internal organs, lowers blood pressure and improves overall body function.
A strong immune system will help you fend off colds and fight infections fast. Unfortunately, poor nutrition, lack of sleep and stress have weakened our immune systems, making us more susceptible to illness. A tried-and-tested way to boost your immunity is to get massages. Massage therapy can increase your body’s natural ability to protect itself and keep you healthy when others are sick.
