Massage is not just luxurious service that you get once in a while, but something that, if you do consistently, can have great benefits for your overall body and health. Here are the top 5 benefits of massage therapy:
One of the most common reasons why people seek massage therapy is due to pain or chronic pain that they’ve been suffering for a while. A good massage therapist can find the source of the pain, and with different use of modality can loosen the muscle for relief.
When we’re stressed, our muscles tighten. Massage can loosen the muscles and release endorphins or the “feel good” hormones. One study even found that massage therapy reduced cortisol level in the body.
Get rid of Toxins
Massage stimulate the lymphatic system, which helps the body rid the toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. Drinking water throughout your day after your massage can help support this process.
Massage can help improve overall flexibility and range of motion, and reduce inflammation; which can prevent injuries due to less stress on the muscles.
Massage can ease the tension caused by headaches and migraines, by mainly focusing body work on head, shoulder and neck area. One study showed that massage therapy recipients exhibited fewer migraines and better sleep quality during the week they received massage versus participates that did not receive massage therapy.
