Getting a massage used to be a luxury but as more people get them more regularly, and realize the benefits they provide, they’ve been growing in demand and popularity. Now that massage therapy is considered a mainstream treatment option, many insurance companies provide coverage for treatment sessions.
The purpose of massage therapy is to target the source of the body’s pain by eliminating tense muscles, increasing flexibility, and providing relaxation to the affected muscles as well as the body as a whole. Massage also promotes circulation to the affected or injured muscles, which increases nutrients and oxygen to the damaged tissues. In turn, this increased activity to the affected sites reduces stiffness and edema (swelling) in the muscles and joints, as well as increases flexibility to help reduce pain. This form of therapy also releases endorphins (pain-killing hormones) which boost the dopamine and serotonin (the happiness chemicals) levels in the body. These hormones assist the body in many ways, physically as well as emotionally.
This form of therapy involves hands-on techniques to increase circulation, relieve tension, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation throughout the entire body, which all lead to additional benefits. Whether chronic or acute, if someone is tense and in need of a release, or they have been injured and have extensive muscle and/or nerve tissue damage that plagues their body, massage therapy might be worth exploring. It can also be a preventative measure for future problems.
Here are 5 benefits of massage therapy:
- Reduce Stress
- Muscle Relaxation & Flexibility
- Improved Circulation
- Lower Blood Pressure
