Feeling burnt out? Experiencing physical pain or have recently been injured?
Wondering what you can do about it?
Oftentimes when people think of massage therapy, the farthest thing from their minds is prevention. The lack of knowledge about remedial massage therapy and its purpose has made the majority of the people associate massages with words like ‘luxury’, ‘indulgence’, or ‘pampering’.
It is often seen as a treat that people allow themselves every few months.
Now is the time to change the way you think.
Here are 5 surprising ways a massage therapy can heal your body, mind and soul.
Soothes Anxiety And Depression
Massage therapies are known to be used for the treatment of mental and emotional problems including stress, anxiety, and depression. As it is also a relaxing technique, massage therapies may be able to help reduce tension and generate feelings of deep relaxation. Hence, releasing endorphins in your body helps you to feel happy, energised, and at ease.
When you have high levels of stress or tend to get stressed out frequently, you are more likely to get sick more often. Stress leads to a myriad of negative side effects such as sleep deprivation, bad diet and weakened immune system.
A massage therapy can help alleviate stress and boost the immune system’s ability to fight off bacteria and infection.
Improves Sleep & Promotes Deep Rest
People with severe back pain appear to have issues with sleeping and experiencing pain in regular body movements every day, such as bending, sitting, and standing. A massage session can help fix the difficulty in falling asleep or tossing and staying asleep.
Besides, it also calls for a higher quality shut-eye.
When your muscles and connective tissues become stiff, it can cause chronic pain and then limit your movement. Massage therapy can relieve the tension in your muscles and other soft tissues as it is manipulated to promote relaxation.
Helps Lowering High Blood Pressure & Improves Blood Circulation
A person with poor blood circulation can suffer from a variety of discomforts including cold hands and feet, fatigue and achiness created by an accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles.
A massage facilitates blood circulation because the pressure technique moves blood through the congested areas.
The release of this same pressure stimulates the flow of fresh blood. The squeezing and pulling often flush the muscles with lactic acid and increase the circulation of the lymph fluid that eliminates metabolic waste from the muscles and internal organs, resulting in lower blood pressure and improved function of the body.
People should be aware of the power and reaping the medicinal benefits that massages have to offer. Massage therapies have no long or short-term side effects. It is also a great way to improve your health and quality of life.
