Regular massage is safe and effective for almost everyone and has numerous benefits for the entire body, mind and soul. Many people think the benefits of massage are restricted to relaxation (which in itself is hugely important!). But there are numerous other health and wellbeing benefits.
Medical research has shown that the benefits of massage include:
pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, reduced blood pressure and heart rate. The release of endorphins and serotonin can: prevent fibrosis or scar tissue, increase the flow of lymph, and improve sleep.
Relief from pain due to musculoskeletal injuries and other causes is one of the other major benefits of massage. It can also relieve tension headaches, reduce your stress, tension and anxiety levels, improve and maintain your posture, and promote a healthy, vibrant skin.
Overall massage will increase your blood circulation and improve lymphatic fluid circulation to your body.
Massage assists the body's natural ability to heal itself. It relaxes and tones the muscles, preventing injuries, increases circulation and therefore improves the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to all body cells.
One of the best benefits of massage is that it makes you feel great!!!
