Benefits of Massage

aging couple

Massage is wonderful. Massage is soothing. Massage is a luxurious, pampering experience. But did you know it's also good for your health?

Of course massage is wonderful for stress relief, but it can also lower blood pressure, help you recover from injury, and even help prevent injury in the first place. You change the oil in your car on a regular basis, service the air conditioner in your house on a regular basis, visit the dentist on a regular basis - how about preventative maintenance for your body?

Touch therapy has many applications in science and medicine, and touch is the core ingredient in massage therapy. Massage combines the science and art of the most ancient form of healing, which has been around for over 4000 years.

There is much scientific research to support the benefits of massage for various conditions, including back pain, carpel tunnel, arthritis, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, chronic and acute pain, musculo-skeletal disorders, sport injuries, headache, migraine, and circulatory problems.

Massage improves circulation, which increases blood flow, bringing fresh oxygen to body tissues. This can assist the elimination of waste products, speed healing after injury, and enhance recovery from disease. The basic goal of massage therapy is to help the body heal itself and to increase health and well-being.

Other benefits of massage therapy:

  • Boosting and strengthening the immune system
  • Decreasing blood pressure by relieving stress and promoting relaxation
  • Increasing circulation, which means faster healing and recovery from injury (and also glowing, healthier skin)
  • Decreasing inflammation, which helps to relieve pain
  • Relieving the discomforts of pregnancy, including pain, swelling, gas, constipation, and heartburn
  • Increasing range of motion, mobility, and flexibility
