So, what’s stopping you?


We have 10 reasons right here that will inspire you to visit your massage therapist today…


Massage helps to treat some health conditions

Massage therapy can help with several common health conditions, some that you might already know about and others that may come as a surprise to you. If you suffer with constant back, leg and neck pain; muscle tension and spasm, a good massage will send you on the route to feeing relief.


Some musculoskeletal conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome can also

be helped by massage, as can the symptoms of chronic conditions like

multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, arthritis and some digestive disorders.


Massage can help to improve circulation

Massage therapy is great for boosting blood circulation, which helps to

deliver oxygen and nutrients around the body more efficiently.


Massage can increase lymphatic flow

Your lymphatic system is a system of tubes and lymph nodes running

throughout your body which make up an important part of the immune

system. It helps to fight bacteria and other infections, and a healthy

lymph flow also helps clear toxins from your body.


Massage can speed up post injury healing

If you’ve overdone it or hurt yourself accidentally you’ll be glad to know

that massage doesn’t just help reduce muscle soreness and stiffness, it

can also break up scar tissue, freeing up movement and enhancing your

recovery.


Massage can help to increase your range of motion

Another thing that a great massage therapist can do is use techniques

that stimulate the production of lubricants between connective tissues,

which improves flexibility and balance.


Massage can help you to improve your posture

Massage helps to train your muscles, which improves the posture of

your body as well as correcting any imbalances caused by sitting for

long periods – which are common in people who sit at a desk all day.


Massage can give your immune system a boost

Massage is known to boost production of lymphocytes – the white

blood cells which help fight off disease. Although a massage can’t

guarantee you’ll never get another cold, there has been research that

suggests it helps the body to fight infections and reduce the severity

and duration of bugs and minor illnesses.


Massage can make you feel happier

The action of massaging the skin stimulates alpha brain waves, which

are associated with relaxation, and promotes the release of endorphins

– the body’s feel-good chemicals.


Massage can help you to de-stress

Massage is known to help reduce cortisol levels in the body. Cortisol is

the primary stress hormone, so elevated levels are not good for your

body at all. At the same time, massage has been shown to boost

serotonin and dopamine levels, making you feel more relaxed and

happy.


Massage could give you a better night’s sleep

If insomnia is your bedfellow, try a massage. Massage can help to

balance out your sleep pattern and overcome insomnia and the fatigue

that goes with not getting enough sleep.
