The Benefits of Massage are Wonderful and Can Ripple Into Many Areas of Your Life

A Powerful Way to Help Improve Your Health

Explore some of the specific benefits a good massage can add to your day! Have you ever wondered why massage feels so good? Aside from slowing down the old brain, it interrupts pain signals travelling from your muscles to your brain. Your brain then decides to send feel good chemicals instead of inflammation chemicals to your muscles. Voila! So long pain. Hello relief. There are so many benefits to be gained from a session with a skilled therapist that I can’t help but wonder why more of us aren’t veteran massage explorers.

Being a massage professional, we’ve talked to so many people who believe massage is something that feels good, but do not view it as a legitimate health care essential, we say it is. And here are a few reasons why:

Massage Can Relieve Pain

The benefits of massage are seemingly endless. Although any one of the benefits in our list are worthy of an hour of your time, let me tempt you by sharing with you that you can experience all of these benefits by simply relaxing on massage table and letting someone else do the hard work instead. If you have ever had a massage then you know that it is beneficial not just for your body but for your mind as well.

• The muscles around your nerves soften which is very soothing to nerves
• Stubborn irritation passes on

Massage Can Increase Movement

Massage compresses and then decompresses the tissues. Or as I like to say; Massage squishes and then un-squishes the knots. This softens the muscles. It also relieves tightness in the joints. Softened muscles and joints allow the tension in your body to release. This allows your muscles and joints to move fluidly and with ease.

• Softer muscles are less painful
• Relaxed joints are easier to move

Massage Can Improve the Health of Your Skin

Better circulation hydrates your skin to plump and soften, while pushing the fluids through stuck areas. In other words; the more water and vitamins you squish into your skin, the better it looks and feels. Did you know that your skin is actually an organ? It is. Skin is the first line of defense against germs and bugs from the outside world. This means that keeping your skin healthy is also a way of strengthening your immune system!

• Gives skin flushed healthy glow
• The skin is pumped full of oxygen and nutrients
• The oils and creams used make skin soft and beautiful too!

Massage Can Improve Circulation

Massage helps your body circulate blood by manually moving the fluids around your body. This floods even the stiff, stuck areas of your body with oxygen and nutrients. It also helps the heart, lungs and filter organs like liver and kidneys by giving them a little extra strength. Although it can also dislodge blood clots and put strain on failing organs, so be sure and tell your therapist if you have serious health issues. Massage may not be the right option, or rather, lighter techniques could be more appropriate. A good therapist will discuss such things with you.

• The whole body is flooded with oxygen and nutrients
• Helps heart, lungs, and organs

Remember to help your body stay hydrated and drink lots of water!
