Benefits of Massage Therapy
When you are under pressure at work or studying for a big exam, the body produces excess of the stress hormone cortisol. This buildup can lead to restlessness, headaches and even digestive problems. Stress can take a toll on both the mind and body.
But a regular massage lowers heart rate, blood pressure and insulin levels, to help reduce daily stress. More endorphins – your body’s natural “feel good” chemical – are produced as serotonin and dopamine are released. This results in a feeling of calm relaxation that can improve your mood and make stress easier to overcome.
Massage has proven to help the body enter a relaxing rest-and-recovery mode, an effect that lingers long after the massage is over. Ongoing massage therapy can reduce pain, increase energy levels, circulation and improve overall physical performance.
Regardless of where you carry tension, a massage can help to exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles. It can also help athletes prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts, all while preventing injury.
Massage promotes deeper and easier breathing. When your body is relaxed, your nervous system responds with a lower heart rate and steady breath. This leads to decreased anxious feelings and worries. The emotional balance and reset that a massage provides can be just as valuable as the tangible, physical benefits.
