Why get a massage? The top 4 benefits of massage
Thursday, February 19, 2015
Many of our guests come to us to unwind and release the stress of their busy lives. Therapeutic massage is a great way to relax and let go. Massage therapists know that when your stress levels go down, your health improves. You sleep better, have more energy, and better circulation. Mentally, massage improves your concentration and reduces anxiety. And a massage can give you a sense of emotional balance, perspective, and clarity that is just wonderful.
#2 Feel Younger and Move More Easily
One of the best benefits of massage is that it helps your body move more easily! Massage helps to exercise and stretch tight or weaker muscles. It increases joint flexibility. Massage reduces that nagging low-back pain. It also helps improve your range of motion and joint flexibility. How nice!
#3 Feel better with reduced pain
The Mayo Clinic explains that massage helps with headaches, fibromyalgia, and nerve pain. It also improves strains and injuries. Why? Every massage therapist will tell you that massage releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. Even migraine pain is helped. And depression and anxiety are reduced too.
#4 Perform better athletically
Massage sessions can reduce inflammation, says the Huffington Post. One of the benefits of massage is to help your muscles recover after a hard workout. Massage also helps athletes of any level prepare for workouts as well as recover from them.
