Massage Is More Than Pampering Yourself!

People believe that getting a massage is just a way to pamper or indulge yourself. Because of this many of us wait to have one; we all treat it as a way to reward ourselves for special occasion. Benefits of receiving a therapeutic massage run much deeper than the superficial “feeling good”-which seems like a good enough reason.

Endless positive reasons are there to receive a massage, but here we will discuss few:

Alleviate Chronic Pain

Many people suffer with chronic back, shoulder and/or neck issues. Massage will help to reduce the cause of this pain. Massage will be a healthier and more holistic approach than reaching for synthetic drugs.

Better Sleep

Many people have problems falling asleep. Whenever you get a massage, it not only reduces tension & stress but it will help to change our hormone levels in such a way that allows for more profound relaxation to arise. Therapeutic massage has been linked to increased delta waves in the brain, which are connected to deeper, more restful sleep.

Relieve Mild Depression

Massage Therapy will help you release tension, stress and anxiety that is often accompanied with mild depression. Receiving physical touch can change our bio- chemistry and lower our cortisol levels, your body’s stress hormone. High cortisol levels can lead to all kinds of imbalance in our systems. Massage therapy is a natural way to regulate these hormones levels, improve state in our overall mental and physical wellbeing.

Boost Your Immunity

When you are stressed and anxious all time, it’s harder for our body to fight off and defend against the pathogens we’re exposed to every single day. Massage can allow  lymphatic system to drain and release waste like bacteria from the body more efficiently and increase our chances to fight off the germs we come in contact with.

Self Massage

If scheduling a massage on a more regular basis is a challenge for you, or you feel hindered by the cost, you can always try self massages.
