Benefits of a Regular Massage

Clinical massage therapy involves the manipulation of soft body tissues treating the precise areas that are causing your problem.  The earliest known writings about massage therapy can be traced back to around 3000 BC. Scientific research has proven that massage therapy can ease pain, improve circulation, and reduce symptoms of stress and swelling. While clinical massage therapy is not a cure-all, there are many conditions that arise in the musculoskeletal system that can be helped by this approach.

There are many benefits to getting a regular massage, some of which are listed below.

  • Posture gradually improves as the muscles around the spine become more flexible and less tense.

  • Circulation is encouraged, which is good for muscle recovery and healing.

  • Massage encourages deeper breathing, helping oxygen circulate encouraging healing and growth.

  • Joint flexibility is increased and tension relieved.

  • A calm mind is encouraged by massage along with a completely relaxed body.

  • A massage is claimed to boast alertness and improve attention.

  • The cortisol that is decreased by massage is said to boast your lymph flow and immune cells.

  • The decrease in cortisol and increase in serotonin and dopamine provided by the massage may also reduce stress, anxiety and depression.

If you’re experiencing any of these problems, massage therapy can help you to reduce tension and pain, improve blood flow, relieve stress, and experience over-all relaxation and well being.
