Everyone loves a good massage to unplug and pamper themselves, but massage is so much more. There are actually numerous health benefits that come from regular, professional massage sessions. Here are a just a few reasons to set up that regular schedule of massage sessions.

Relaxation. It’s clear that a good massage will help you relax, but it really does go above and beyond in this area. Studies have found that massage is helpful for relieving anxiety and calming stress levels that can cause those tension headaches. Massage stimulates neurotransmitters that can help reduce depression, and it can even help reduce stress-related insomnia for a better night’s sleep.

Injury relief. Massage is an important tool for athletes because it helps speed healing of sore muscles and injuries. Massage works by increasing blood flow to your muscles, stretching out tight muscles and loosening scar tissue to get you back in the game quickly. It can even help reduce stiffness caused by broken bones and help you recover faster and regain movement.

Relief from symptoms of medical conditions. Regular massage has been shown in many studies to help relieve symptoms of some medical conditions, including fibromyalgia, digestive issues, migraines, myofascial pain syndrome and others. Research is continuing to discover new medical conditions with symptoms that can be relieved through professional massage, and the outlook is very promising. There is evidence that massage lowers blood pressure to help improve cardiovascular health, and that cancer patients can 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 muscle relaxation and increased circulation helps reduce spasms and contractions that often cause pain. Some studies also suggest that the increase in serotonin caused by the body’s relaxation response helps counteract the effects of pain.
