Massage Relieves Pain
Chiropractors and physical therapists understand that one of the benefits of massage is the pain relief it can provide. In the hands of a skilled masseuse working under clinical conditions, someone suffering from chronic pain or certain types of injury can experience immediate, partial, or temporary relief. Some-times massage can be used in conjunction with physical therapy, hydrotherapy, and medication to manage injury-related pain.
Massage Eases Tension
Physical tension caused by standing or sitting at your job all day or performing physical activity that youre not use to doing can be relieved by getting a massage to relax those worn muscles and limbs. Youll feel less stiff and sore afterwards.
Massage Relaxes Inflamed Muscles
If you play sports, chances are there will be times when you overdo it or pull a muscle that has not warmed up property. Consider getting a massage to ease the tension and soreness of limbs damaged by sports-related injuries, with a doctors approval. Check with the doctor and let the masseuse know before getting a massage if you have a muscle injury.
Massage Reduces Stress
A whole-body massage can relax those stiff muscles that can cause tension headaches. It can help to free your mind of stressful events or difficult emotions temporarily. Having a massage puts the focus on you in the moment, taking it from problems and the past or future. You can escape the day-to-day problems by languishing in the care of a trained masseuse whose firm hands will ease the tension right out of your body.
Massage Improves Circulation
If youre feeling sluggish, have been sitting too much in front of your computer, or dont get enough exercise, a massage can help to stimulate your body tissues and improve circulatory flow. If you have medical circulation problems or are on blood thinning medications, ask your doctor about getting a massage. For some, a massage can lower blood pressure and improve pulse rates to help improve overall health.
Massage Provides a Welcome Respite
Lets face it: few people take adequate care of themselves. Many women are caregivers, taking care of children, aging adults, their careers and relationships. All of these can be demanding, so getting a massage is a terrific way to step into another world for awhile, to enjoy being pampered and comforted. Afterward, youll be ready to re-enter the everyday world because youve taken the time to relax from it all.
Massage Enhances Your Mood
By releasing the feel-good endorphins into your system, massage creates a sense of well being that can make anyone feel better. Its hard to stay in a bad mood when a professional masseuse is stroking your body in a way that releases natural substances from the brain that evoke a pleasurable response. Just getting away from the hectic pace of everyday life and enjoying a personal indulgence can give you a calmer, happier frame of mind.
Massage Can Be Rejuvenating
At various times in life, you may feel run-down and overwhelmed from the daily routine. When you get a massage, your body and mind wake up. Even though the massage feels totally relaxing, by the time you leave, you will feel more alert and fresh. By stimulating the brain and the body, massage rids your body of distractions and helps you get in tune with feelings both physical and emotional, regenerating sapped power reserves to give you energy for the rest of the day.
Massage Provides Expert Handling of Minor Aches and Pains
In addition to addressing sports injuries or accident traumas, even minor aches and pains due to aging or a sedentary lifestyle can be eased with massage. Mild arthritic discomfort may be diminished with a massage given by experienced hands. Stiff, underused, or overused limbs may benefit from a professional massage.
