Some people get massaged for fun, to reduce tight and painful muscles, or to manage chronic pain or migraines.
Massage therapy helps:
- Decrease anxiety
- Enhance sleep quality
- Increase energy
- Improve concentration
- Increase circulation
- Reduce fatigue
- Improved mood
Massage therapy is also very helpful for stress relief. We are all stressed at times, and we all know too much stress is bad for our health. Even when stress isn’t the root cause of your health concern, it is often and aggravating factor. Massage may not make your commute shorter or your mortgage less daunting, but massage therapy can absolutely help you manage stress.
And it’s not all in your head! Numerous studies have found objective data regarding the power of massage for pain relief, reduced blood pressure, decreased PMS symptoms, and lowered anxiety. Massage is becoming a more valued part of hospice and neonatal intensive care units, and even surgery centers, because of its proven benefits for improved physical and psychological health and healing.
