Benefits of Massage

One of the most commonly recognized benefits of massage is the reduction of muscle tension. But there are many other benefits that are not as widely known. Massage stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s feel-good hormones. These Hormones help reduce the body’s sensation of pain. Because massage relieves pain, it also lessens the body’s need for pain-killing medication. Massage lowers stress levels allowing the body to heal itself. It lowers blood pressure, allows for easier breathing and lessens feelings of anxiety. Circulation of blood in the body is enhanced through massage. Improved circulation means improved supply of nutrients to individual cells of the body and improved transportation of wastes from these cells. Stimulation of the lymphatic system is another benefit of massage. It boosts the body’s immunity and natural defense mechanisms. A healthy lymphatic system means less susceptibility to various illnesses and improves the body’s ability to heal itself. Everyone knows that getting a massage feels good. But did you know that getting regular massage has a cumulative effect. Getting regular massage builds on itself.  Much like getting regular exercise. The benefits are increased and lead to overall better health and feeling of wellness.
