Why it’s important to have regular massage ?  

In today’s modern day people are busier and more stressed than ever. We take little time off to relax and clear our mind from lives pressure’s, i think we can all agree most people do not take enough ‘ me time’. However it’s been proven an hour’s massage a month has multiple health benefits as well as being relaxing and enjoyable.

Helps postural stress

Most individuals are dealing with some kind of postural stress, in most cases stress tends to gather in the shoulders and neck. Desk workers tend to suffer more advance forms due to sitting down for long periods of time, causing a weakness or pain in the lower back and gluteals. Regular massage will help counteract this meaning you can continue your desk job in more comfort.

Eases muscular pain  

Massage increases and improves circulation, helping to release build up tension and ease pain. Similar effect to when you rub an area after a fall to make it feel better, helps relieve pain.

Soothes anxiety and depression

Human touch that is friendly, safe and professional can be extremely calming

Improves sleep  

Massage can encourage a restful sleep and it also helps those who cant other wise comfortably rest.

Boost’s your immune system

Studies have found that massage helps boost your body’s white blood cell count, which play a large role in defending the body from disease.

Relieves headache’s  

Massage decreases frequency and severity of tension headache’s, it has an immediate effect on pain caused by tension headache’s.

I think we can   all see at least one reason or more as to why we should be having regular massage to help with our general health and well being. Remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your therapist  to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.
