The benefits of massage?

From as early as 2700 B.C., massage was used by several ancient cultures to treat injuries and cure terminal conditions. Massage was the preferred treatment for sports and war injuries. Massage therapy continues to hold its place as one of the most effective, safe and natural ways to treat mental and physical ailments, such as stress, pain, anxiety and depression. Here are our favourite benefits of regular massages:


  1. Pain Relief - One of the biggest reasons people get massages is to relieve pain. Massages provide pain relief through applied pressure, muscle relaxation and increased circulation. With regular massage therapy sessions muscle cramps and spasms, stiffness and body aches are either reduced or prevent altogether.

  2. Relaxation - Stress affects everyone in one way or another, but if you’re like one of the millions of people who deal with it every day, you’ve got to manage it. One of the best ways to relieve stress and keep stress-hormone levels in control is to get regular massages. Immersed in serene relaxation, a full body massage has been known to bring your body and mind in a sleep state, allowing you to get a much needed power nap. Massage therapy also raises the body’s production and release of endorphins.

  3. Improves posture and flexibility - Regular massage therapy can do wonders for your posture and flexibility. Massage therapy loosens and relaxes muscles, which relieves pressure points and gives joints a greater range of motion. Once pressure points are relieved, the body can position itself properly and develop a natural posture that doesn’t cause pain.

  4. Flushes bodily toxins - Massage therapy plays an important role in clearing toxins from your body. Regular massages can flush out lactic acid build-up in muscles, promote sinus drainage, loosen mucus in the lungs and break up scar tissue. Flushing out toxins and clearing the normal by products of muscle metabolism can result in reduced fatigue, improved stamina and accelerated healing of muscle tears or injuries.

  5. Can lower blood pressure - . Regular massages have been found to lower blood pressure, by reducing the stress-hormone levels that can cause onset depression, anxiety and anger. Being pain-and stress-free will greatly affect your blood pressure and allow you to relax your mind.
