Massage has so many benefits. Yes, there are the obvious benefits, such as relaxation, but massage has an impact on overall health as well. Studies have shown numerous positive effects on physical and mental well-being when massage is used as part of an overall health and wellness practice.
What are the benefits of massage?
These are just a few perks of regular massage:
- Stress reduction
- Improved circulation
- Better immune system
- Improved sleep
- Better digestion
Studies have also shown that massage therapy has a positive effect on people who suffer from depression and anxiety. For people who workout or engage in sports, regular massage is essential for helping relax sore, tired and over-stressed muscles. Aside from all of these benefits, massage just feels good. Whether you are active in sports or fitness, stuck behind a desk all day, or a parent who is running around and lifting kids all day, a massage isn't frivolous, it's necessary!
As with anything else, if you suffer from illness or injury, you should consult with your doctor to find out what kind of massage therapy is best for you.
