Four massage benefits you may not know
Massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of healthcare, the first written records of massage are found in China, India and Egypt dating back to 2700BC. At this time Massage was performed almost exclusively by the ancient equivalent to modern doctors. Nowadays, we are lucky to have massage therapy as a very accessible source of healthcare and relaxation.
Massage has many obvious benefits such as relaxation, improved sleep, headache, pain and stress relief but there are numerous advantages of massage therapy that many people do not know about.
While massage therapy can aid in healing injuries it can also help prevent them. A deep tissue massage can prevent injury by breaking down adhesions and increasing range of movement. This is why we see many sports stars such as Olympians, NFL Players and more getting regular massage therapy not only after but before intense training.
Immune system support:
It’s a well-known fact that people with high-stress levels are more likely to get sick more often as stress can lower your immune system. Getting into the habit of regular massage sessions can help alleviate stress and as a result, has been proven to increase the immune system’s ability to fight off bacteria and infection.
Improved blood circulation:
Good blood circulation assists in maintaining healthy blood flow and oxygen flow throughout the body, allowing your lungs, heart and muscles to function properly and efficiently. The pressure created through massage moves blood through congested areas, the release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow In.
Draining Lymph Fluid:
Lymph fluid is usually a watery colourless fluid which contains white blood cells. Draining lymphatic fluid can reduce water retention, boost weight loss, improve your immune system, remove toxins and reduce bloating.
