The Benefits of Massage Therapy – Why this therapy is good for you:

Studies of the benefits of Massage Therapy demonstrate that advanced massage is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain, and muscle tension. However, I wanted to share some of the other benefits that take this ancient healing art to the next level. Below is a simple list of the benefits of massage therapy.

Note: Frequently, the higher level of skill, education, and experience with the therapist, the better the results you can expect. The health and activity level of an individual also plays an important role.

Improve the circulation of the good things

Massage therapy is great for increasing circulation of fluids and blood.  The circulatory system delivers oxygen, nutrients, and improved nerve signals more efficiently around the body. Therefore, connecting function of the body’s systems, organs, and tissues.

Increase the elimination of the bad things

The lymphatic system is made up of a system of vessel tubes and lymph nodes that run throughout the body. As a result, this vital part of the immune system is critical for waste disposal. Furthermore, helping to remove foreign invaders, fight bacteria and other infections, and healthy lymph flow also helps clear toxins from your body.

Speed up post-injury recovery and healing

Injuries can occur from underuse, overuse, or plain old abuse. Massage therapy can relieve muscle soreness and stiffness, and also break up scar tissue, creating ease of movement and help your body heal faster.

The Benefits of Massage Therapy Increase Joint Range of Motion

Increase joint range of motion and freedom of movement

A good massage therapist will use techniques that stimulate the production of lubricants between connective tissues, which improves flexibility and balance. Furthermore, by using a combination of sports medicine and osteopathic techniques like contract-relax, contract-antagonist with active-assisted stretching, restores muscle length to short and tight muscles and tissues almost like magic.

Correct and improve posture with skeletal and postural integration

The average person sits for 12 hours every day. Advanced massage techniques help to release muscles that pull your bones out of alignment. As a result, improving posture as well as correcting imbalances caused by prolonged sitting.

Super-boost your immune system

Massage can move tons of lymph and boost the production of lymphocytes (white blood cells that fight off disease.) Regular massage can help the body fight infections and reduce the severity and duration of bugs and minor illnesses.

 Massage helps treat some health conditions

Massage can help lower stress levels and that in turn can lower high blood pressure. If you are experiencing back, leg, or neck pain, an assessment will help find the cause, and massage will balance the body’s tissues that have been creating pain.

Some musculoskeletal conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfers elbow, sciatica, piriformis syndrome can also be helped with medical-massage. Similarly, the symptoms of chronic conditions like chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and some digestive disorders can be significantly reduced.

The Benefit of Massage Therapy - Get a better night’s sleep

Get a better night’s sleep

The subconscious mind is most noticeably active at night. If you have stressful areas of your life that are unfinished or incomplete, you notice it most at night when you are trying to sleep. This can create more stress on top of being sleep deprived the next day and can lead to chronic sleep deprivation over time. Massage can help relax your muscles and tissues.  You can finally relax again, get the deep rest you need, balance your sleep patterns, overcome insomnia, and beat the fatigue that goes with sleep deprivation.

Feel happier and healthier

The movements in massaging the body stimulate deep central nervous system receptors and alpha brain waves, which are associated with relaxation, and increases the release of endorphins and serotonin (the body’s feel-good chemicals.)

Massage can help you remove tension and de-stress

Above all, massage is known to help reduce stress hormones in the body. Cortisol is the prime stress hormone, and elevated levels are toxic to the body. As a result, massage therapy has been proven to boost serotonin and dopamine levels, making you feel more relaxed and happy.
