Massage has been used for centuries to treat pain and stress, improve circulation, and relax muscles. It also helps people feel better emotionally and mentally.
Here are 5 benefits to getting a massage…
A good massage can help relieve tension, reduce anxiety, and even make you fall asleep faster. If you suffer from insomnia, a massage can help you sleep more soundly.
Improves Sleep Quality
A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people who received massages reported better quality sleep than those who didn’t receive them.
It’s no secret that stress has negative effects on our bodies. In fact, research shows that stress can lead to headaches, back pain, stomach aches, anxiety, insomnia, and even cancer. Fortunately, there are ways to relieve stress naturally through massage therapy.
A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people who received regular massages experienced fewer colds than those who didn’t receive them. Researchers believe that the reason for this is that massage helps improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, both of which help boost immunity.
Helps with Chronic Pain
If you suffer from chronic pain, you might benefit from receiving a massage. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, “massage therapy has been shown to reduce pain and improve function in patients with musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and back pain.”
