A massage is an excellent form of self-care, with so many benefits, it’s easy to see why. There is a lot of evidence that getting a massage is more than just a relaxing experience. A single massage can significantly reduce your heart rate and blood pressure. A single message can provide a number of physical and emotional health benefits, such as reduced anxiety and pain relief.
Here Are Some Of The Benefits Of Getting A Massage
Backache in the Lower Back
We spend a lot of time at a desk or behind the wheel, and a sedentary lifestyle can have a significant impact on the health of your spine. Lower back pain is a regular occurrence. Back pain affects 80 percent of adults in the United States and is the leading cause of missed work. Lifting heavy objects or performing rapid motions such as twisting or bending may result in back pain. The pain is especially excruciating because it can spread to the legs and is difficult to treat.
Stress Reduction Massage
One in every seven Australians will experience depression at some point in their lives, and a quarter will experience anxiety. Unfortunately, one out of every eight Australians is currently afflicted with a mental illness. Both talking therapies and pharmaceutical treatments are gaining popularity. While these disorders are common, they can be debilitating, interfering with your ability to work as well as your personal and social lives.
Trigger Point Treatment
The trigger points can become extremely painful and obstruct movement. Trigger points, also known as knots, are fibrous patches of muscle that form as a result of repetitive movements such as playing sports or typing on a computer keyboard. Massage can help to reduce the size of these knots, relieve discomfort, and increase range of motion by gently locating and working on them.
Ease Muscle Tension
Tension headaches are notoriously difficult to treat because they are brought on by stress, anxiety, or poor posture. Massage, which can lower baseline and trait anxiety levels, can help you manage your headaches without resorting to pain relievers. They have the potential to have a significant impact on your daily life over time.
Improving the Immune System
The physical motion of receiving a massage can help lymph fluid move from the veins to the lymph nodes. In addition to a circulatory system that transports blood, your lymphatic system includes a network of vessels. When bacterial or viral cells are processed, the lymph system responds to protect the body from infection by preventing the organism from growing and keeping you healthy.
Improve Your Sleeping Habits
Massage relaxes you and makes you feel less anxious, making it easier to fall asleep naturally. Massage also helps the body to stay in deep, restorative sleep for longer periods of time. We’re all looking for ways to sleep better, and massage may be the answer. This not only improves your mood but also allows your body to heal from any injuries or cell damage.
It’s natural to lose flexibility as we age, and nearly half of people over-75 population have some form of disability. The calming effects of massage can also help to relieve any stress you may be feeling in your body. Massage can help reduce swelling and inflammation caused by arthritic changes, as well as lengthening limb fibers to improve flexibility.
