Many people agree that getting a massage makes them feel good, but many don’t realize that getting a massage regularly is great for your overall health. Massage can improve sports performance, aid recovery and prevent injuries, reduce stress and enhance circulation.
So where do you turn when you’re not feeling your best. There are many health treatments available so how do you choose? Think about this, the Chinese began using massage to heal the human body as long ago as 5,000BC and it's still being used today!
Massage Therapy for Health and Wellness
Massage looks a lot like pressing and gliding on the skin, but massage is actually a scientific process. There is a reason you feel different after receiving a massage. Massage increases blood and lymph circulation, which promotes healing and invigorates tired, aching and injured muscles. Lymph is a fluid that rids the body tissues of waste and replies on the movement of muscles to do so. Massage can dramatically aid lymph movement, which together with blood, supplies the body with nutrients and oxygen and rids wastes and toxins.
While increased blood and lymph circulation is important to our health, massage offers many other benefits:
Increase the Benefits with Regular Visits
Receiving a massage regularly can do you a world of good. Taking part in regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you'll be and how youthful you'll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for massage is truly an investment in your health. Remember, just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn't mean it is any less therapeutic.
