The Benefits of Regular Massage Sessions
There are many benefits to receiving regular massage therapy.
The most well known benefits are it's relaxing, and it feels good. Yet there are so many other great benefits, which make adding massage to your weekly and monthly routine an easy decision.
Pain Relief: Often pain is the most common reason for scheduling massage. When you have a massage routine of twice monthly sessions, we find and resolve dysfunction in the muscles and joints before the pain level is high enough to interupt your life. We resolve the issues before you even know you have them!
Immune System Support: Lowering your stress level is key in keeping your immune system in peak performance. Massage sessions relax the body, and the mind. Need to vent, and process whatever might be stressing you out? Discussing whatever comes to mind during a session is a great way to release stress, at the same time releasing the tension in your body. Need just an hour of quiet to ease your mind? Silence and the music of your choice are just the ticket.
Anxiety and Depression Management: Similar to simple stress reduction, regular massage allows you to feel more relaxed and happy. Women diagnosed with breast cancer who received massage therapy three times a week reported being less depressed and less angry, according to a 2005 study published in the International Journal of Neuroscience.
Sleep: This one pretty much speaks for itself. If you're in less pain and more relaxed, you will sleep better at night. A good night's sleep is worth it's weight in (gold membership) massage!
It's been said many times, and it will be said many more. Regular, consistent massage sessions are one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Your body and mind will thank you!
