Sore Back? Aching Legs? Constant Headache? Tension in the body builds up after time and one best ways to remove it is by scheduling a massage. A massage is a holistic treatment designed to heal the body through touch and gentle pressure release.
Besides releasing tension, it’s a great way to take time for yourself and just relax. Here’s a list of health benefits and other ways regular massage can enhance your overall wellness.
Relieves Digestive Disorders
Massages help reduce tension all over the body, but can have an especially strong impact on the stomach and digestive organs. Through specific styles of massage and different pressures, stomach inflammation and indigestion can lessen and even disappear entirely.
Reducing Fibromyalgia Pain
Using massage as a treatment for chronic nerve pain, also known as fibromyalgia is one way to reduce tension and improve a person’s overall physical and psychological health. Massages for fibromyalgia patients restore muscle tenacity, which restores activity within muscles that have lost function because of chronic pain.
Improve Quality of Sleep
Massages help the body relax on a deep level by improving circulation and reducing tension within deep layers of muscle and tissue. By scheduling appointments at night, patients can enjoy a deeper sleep and a relaxed body. By relaxing the body before we sleep, we can enjoy eight hours of relaxation and rejuvenation.
Improved Mental Clarity
Without knowing we often store unwanted stress in different parts of the body. The most common parts of the body that stress affects is the neck, shoulders and hips. By removing that tension and pain, we can think clearer, take a breath and make better decisions by calming the mind.
Sometimes the body holds on to the physical tension and won’t let allow old injuries to heal. By physically untying the body’s knots, worn out muscles can relax and old injuries can disappear. This includes busted knees, tired ankles and overused shoulders.
It’s clear that massages can help the body feel better, but they can also heal the body in a deeper and long-term way. By taking an hour or ninety minutes to remove tension from your body, you can improve your health and improve your life. Besides, don't you deserve a massage once in a while?
