Benefits of a Full Body Massage

Massage treatment can be categorized as a form of therapy that relieves the tension in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. A full body massage is ideal for relieving the stress, pain, and tension in your body. Not only does it help your muscles, but it also promotes a healthier mind. It can range from light stroking, more commonly known as aromatherapy, to pressurized, deep tissue tension relief. There are many different types of massages available at massage clinics nowadays. From a quick 15 minute shoulder massage to a full body oil treatment that lasts for 60 minutes, there is a service for everyone that will not only make your body feel relaxed, but de-stress you while you enjoy the benefits.

Body Massages Help You Unwind

With the never-ending stresses of the world, it is hard to eliminate it from your life despite all the organizing and planning and good diet you keep up. One of the easiest ways to relax is through a massage because it targets pressure points in our body that allow the body and mind to relax. Taking a deep breath before and during the massage can also help you relax and unwind. Massage of your diaphragm, as well as chest and rib muscles, can also assist in tension reduction because all of these muscles partake in the breathing process. Sometimes clinics will use essential oil diffusers to create a calming atmosphere so you can fully relax.

Revives Your Skin

Massages are like a light exfoliation process that removes dead skin cells. Specialized oils and lotions can be used to relax muscles and moisturize the skin. Also, massage increases the lymph flow that helps us remove toxins from the body and reduces cellulite. After only one massage session, you will notice that your skin is moisturized and soft, depending on the product that was used.

Nervous System Relaxant

During the massage, our body releases endorphins which aid in maintaining healthy sleep and regulate other hormones which balance out our sleep cycles, stress levels, and even boost metabolism. At the same time, our stress hormone levels are being reduced. When it comes to pain related to muscle pressure on nerves, massage can help with that as well. It will relax the muscles and relieve the tension from the nerves. Consequently, it will aid in reducing chronic pain and leave you feeling limber and warm.

Relieves the Side Effects of Stress

Long-term exposure to stress can lead to many negative effects on our general health including anxiety, diabetes, weight gain, high blood pressure, and many more. While there are many methods to try and reduce your cortisol levels from reaching sky rocketing highs,m massages are a great anti-stress treatment because, as already mentioned, help in stress hormone reduction. Therefore, when you get a massage, side effects that you experience from stress such as hair loss, weight gain and poor diet, slowly start fading away. Not only this, you can get a masseuse to come to you so you don’t even have to leave the house! Super hassle-free.

Boosts Blood Regulation in Bones

Massages increases blood circulation through our entire body. Increased blood flow through massages brings calcium and other minerals and vitamins that are essential for bone strength and function. They can also help increase the permeability of your muscles, allowing them to work better, due to the fluids being massaged through your tissues.

Aids Digestion

Long-term exposure to stress can severely affect our digestive system as well. Massage helps us relieve stress and tension. This consequently has a positive effect on our digestive system. Swedish massage is especially convenient for people with stomach problems because it stimulates peristalsis.

Back and Leg Pain

The most common reasons many people go to the massage treatment are sore and painful back and legs. Not only this, injuries that have been treated with physiotherapy might still need massaging to stimulate blood flow, as previously mentioned, so that recovery can be sped up. Massage therapy sessions can in many cases reduce these problems and sometimes even cure them. Chronic or acute back pain is something we have all experienced at some point in our lives. It can be caused by pressed nerves or muscle tension. Massage can help with both causes. However, make sure it is performed by a medical professional because if it is done improperly, it can lead to many complications.
