Massage is a great way to unplug and pamper yourself, everyone can agree, but there’s more you get out of it than just some pampering. Massage is a truly powerful tool that, when done on a regular basis, works to promote the body’s overall state of well-being. Here are a few reasons to get on a regular schedule for massage sessions.

Relaxation

Yes, a good massage will help you relax, but really, it goes above and beyond in this area. Studies have found that massage is helpful for relieving anxiety and lowering stress levels that cause those tension headaches. Neurotransmitters are stimulated during a massage and that can help to reduce depression as well as reduce stress-related insomnia so you can have a better night’s sleep.

Injury relief

Massage is an incredibly important tool for athletes since it helps speed the healing process of sore muscles and injuries. Blood flow is improved and increased to your muscles, stretching tight muscles and loosening scar tissue to get you back in the game sooner. Massage can even help reduce stiffness caused by broken bones allowing you to regain movement and recover quicker.

Relief from symptoms of medical conditions

Many studies have shown that regular massage helps to relieve symptoms of some medical conditions such as fibromyalgia, digestive issues, migraines, myofascial pain syndrome, etc. Research has continued to discover new medical conditions with symptoms that can be relieved through professional massage, and the outlook is very promising. Evidence proves that massage lowers blood pressure to improve cardiovascular health and that cancer patients benefit from the reduction in stress with regular massage.

Pain relief

Massage has been shown to help reduce pain associated with many of the above medical conditions, as well as joint pain, back pain, and other body aches. The combination of increasing circulation and muscle relaxation helps reduce spasms and contractions that often cause pain. There are studies that also suggest the increase in serotonin, caused by the body’s relaxation response, helps to counteract the effects of pain.
