Massage therapy is both time and modern research proven discipline to make us feel better. It is the combination of relief of physical pains and tensions together with mental relaxation that makes massage therapy so popular. What are the five best reasons to have a massage? What are the five best benefits of massage?
2. Muscles and joints pains and tensions
Most of us feel some muscle pains and aches from time to time. Massage therapy is an excellent way to restore balance in your muscles after heavy physical work or demanding exercise. That is not the only way our muscles get sore though. Our everyday postural habits put pressure on our bodies. The way we sit, stand, walk and move affects our posture and the health of our muscles and joints. And of course, stress and anxiety play a big role in muscle pain and tension. Due to stress blood vessels get constricted and blood supply into soft tissues is reduced. Massage encourages blood flow to the tissues and directly stretches tight muscles, relaxes overuse muscles and reduces cramps and muscle spasms.
3. Immunity boost
Regular massage therapy sessions have been shown to make the immune system stronger. According to research a massage increases the activity of the body's blood white cells that fight viruses. So why not to use a regular massage to keep healthy over winter?
4. Tension headaches
Tension headaches are very often caused by stress, improper posture and muscle tension in the area of
upper back and neck. Regular massage is a way to prevent and treat tension headaches.
5. Skin tone improvement
Massage can improve the look and health of your skin due to increased circulation and tension reduction. Sebum (oily matter that lubricates the skin and is secreted by sebaceous glands in the skin) production is also increased so that your skin is moisturised and softened.
Although I've given you only five benefits of regular massage there are many more. The best way is to experience the magic of remedial massage for yourself!
