Benefits of Getting Massages Regularly
Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Many illnesses and conditions are actually brought on by stress and anxiety. These two ailments take a large toll on our bodies that we may not realize. Massage can lower your stress levels: Lowers your cortisol levels and increases serotonin and dopamine levels. This brings on feelings of happiness and comfort, which combats stress.
Relieve Low Back Pain
With low back pain putting a lot of people out of work, it is imperative we do everything in our power to help this uncomfortable and painful condition. If you start to implement one of our massage techniques into your weekly, or even monthly routine you may start to see a difference with your level of pain. Stop missing out on the things you enjoy because of back pain, and invest in your health with a massage.
Protect Your Immune System
If you opt for a deep tissue, or even a Swedish massage, they tend to directly affect the immune system. These deep massages help enhance your natural ability to fight off the unwanted illnesses that are out in the environment.
Reduce Effects of Sitting and Driving
Unfortunately, we are well aware that sitting for long periods of time are not good for our health. Sitting for long periods of time can cause back pain, shoulder pain, and ultimately rewire your muscles to be in a permanent slump. To avoid this, make sure you are standing when possible, sitting with good posture, and getting massages. Massages tend to be able to help your weak muscles regain strength. Regular massages can also alleviate the pain that may be caused from sitting too long.
Prepare and Recover
If you are athletic in any way, shape, or form, massage can be very beneficial for you. Getting massages will help prepare for a marathon or triathlon just as much as training would. Also, getting a massage after you completed your event will help repair muscles that may have been overworked or possibly damaged.
