Massage Therapy: Get in touch with its many benefits

A soothing massage can help you unwind, but that’s not all!  Explore the possible benefits of massage and what to expect…

relaxed-massageBeyond the benefits of pain management for a specific ailment, most people enjoy massage because it feels good and involves taking time out to care for oneself.  There’s no denying the power of bodywork!  Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (stress, pain, headaches), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Experts estimate that stress is one of the causes/contributing factors of nearly 75% of all modern diseases… And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress.  While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether may be unrealistic, massage can without a doubt help manage stress.   Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage.  The emotional balancing that bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.  In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body with profound effects.

Massage helps keep the body in good working order.  It strengthens the body to be able to heal itself, as it is designed to.  Bodywork can improve circulation by increasing nutrition to the cells of your body, also assisting with the removal of cellular and metabolic wastes, and improving oxygen delivery to the soft tissues.  It can aid in deeper/more relaxing sleep, enhance immunity and breaks up pain cycles.  And that’s just to name a few of its many benefits!

Getting a massage frequently can play a huge part in your health and how youthful you’ll remain with each passing year.  Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health.  And remember, just because massage feels like a pampering treat, that doesn’t mean it’s any less therapeutic!  Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.
