Getting a massage is far more than a luxury. Studies show that treating yourself to regular massages can have a tremendously positive impact on your overall health and wellness, as well as being an important aspect of preventive care.
Whether you’re getting a massage for relaxation, medical purposes, or as a special indulgence, finding the time for a massage is very beneficial to everyday life. From reduced tension headaches and migraines to improved flexibility and circulation, there are numerous health benefits of massage therapy.
In honor of the week, we have put together a quick list of reasons why everybody should get a massage:
- Stretch tight or weak muscles while improving flexibility and range of motion. This helps to reduce and ease back pain.
- Oxygen and nutrients are kneaded through soft tissues and vital organs to improve circulation.
- Manage and reduce chronic pain naturally to improve overall quality of life.
- Decrease stress, depression, and anxiety through decreased levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, while feel-good hormones, serotonin and dopamine, are increased.
- Improve sleep quality.
Even if you are not currently feeling aches and pains, you are not injured, or you are not feeling stressed, working in regular massages help prevent future health issues from developing. At Relax The Back, we understand the importance of preventive care, staying healthy, and living a pain-free life.
