Massage isn’t capable of curing any serious or life-threatening medical disorders – but it can provide welcome relief from the symptoms of anxiety, tension, depression, insomia, and stress, as well as back pain, headache, muscle pain and some forms of chronic pain

It’s also frequently recommended for the treatment of minor sports injuries and repetitive stress injuries and for the enhancement of physical conditioning. Some people find that it even relieves such digestive disorders as constipation. There are many reasons to get a massage and here are just a few of them:


Massage decreases stress level 


Many of us find ourselves in a constant state of hyper-alertness as we try to respond to the stresses of day-to-day living.  Massage acts directly on the nervous system, activating the opposite of the “fight or flight syndrome” that we are so familiar with.  

Massage relaxes painful and tight muscles. Massage stretches and kneads tight and painful muscles, gently separating individual fibers that may have become bound and knotted together.  

Once your muscles are relaxed you may find that you can move more freely, breathe more deeply, making it more likely for your muscles to remain in their new-found flexible state. 

Massage improves joint mobility and health. Massage can help increase range of motion in your joints by releasing muscle tension around them. In addition, circulation is also increased in the joints – actually stimulating the healthy production of the joint’s natural lubrication. 


Massage can help ease secondary pain


Massage can relieve secondary pain that builds up around a primary source of pain which can even sometimes last longer than the original cause.  Headaches brought about by tense shoulder and neck muscles, pain and tingling that travels down your leg as a result of tight low back muscles or arthritis are just a few examples. Massage increases vitality, energy and alertness.


Massage increases circulation throughout the body


This cleanses your body of waste products that can cause fatigue and soreness. Massage promotes restful sleep. Many people find that massage helps with accomplishing a full night’s rest.  Massage helps the body and mind relax, and it’s a great way to end a hectic day.

Massage releases your natural endorphins that reduce pain and give feel-good factor. Is a great way to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and so lowering the pulse, slowing breathing and, in general, chilling you out.

By assisting in breaking down of scar tissue & adhesions and improved blood circulation massage speeds up the elimination of waste products which in effect promotes healing.  

It can also benefit those suffering from PMT, menopausal symptoms, skin complaints and in respiratory ailments, as well as being useful in the treatment of depression and emotional traumas.

There are so many more benefits of massage and if you’ve never had a massage before, now is definitely the time to get one
