What are the benefits of a massage?
Massages are great for improving our physical and mental health which, after the last couple of years, is something we all should be doing. Ideally, you should be having a massage every couple of weeks to see improvements, however monthly will help also.
So, what are the benefits?
Reduces anxiety and stress
This year has left a lot of us feeling stressed out, depressed, and anxious. A massage cannot directly cure that, but it does give you time to switch off, relax and put your wellbeing first. Getting a massage helps to boost serotonin and dopamine levels in the body, lowering stress levels and reducing anxiety.
Increases energy and concentration
The techniques and stretches used by the therapist during a massage treatment improve circulation in the body. This rejuvenates and helps you feel invigorated and alert.
Boosts your immune system
Regular massage is also great for boosting our immune system. Massage helps with lymphatic drainage and flushes toxins out the body. This also helps to improve skin tone and brightens your complexion.
Alleviates pressure on your joints
Regular massage reduces the risk of injury by keeping our bodies flexible and improving our range of motion. A good massage will help your body to relax and relieve pressure on your back, neck, and joints.
You get a good night’s sleep
Massages can help you fall asleep quicker and fall into a deeper, more restorative sleep – A deep sleep can help the body to repair and heal itself, meaning you’ll wake up looking and feeling much more revived.
