Why Is Massage Important? It has been a question asked for who had yet tried massage.
Massage has been used since ancient times to relieve pain and promote healing. There are many different types or styles of massage but most offer similar benefits.
Massage is not typically considered a replacement for other types of medical care but can be used along with other methods of treatment to provide the best possible outcomes for patients. Consult with a licensed massage therapist to discuss what type of massage might work best for you and how you might benefit from massage therapy.
Increase Range Of Movement
Sometimes we don’t know how tight we are until we’re loosened up! Massage is an excellent way to increase the range of movement in many areas of our body. For example, stiff, tight computer necks can be loosened, allowing greater movement and decreased pain; our gait can be improved by releasing the psoas, knee problems can be alleviated by releasing surrounding muscles, and tight backs can be released…just to name a few.
Maintaining and increasing range of movement is vital for fitness enthusiasts and athletes but great for the elderly and those suffering chronic health conditions too.
Effectively Reduce Headaches Tensions
Tension headaches are a real pain! Also known as ‘muscle contraction headache’ they are one of the most common types of headaches. To make matters worse, they add insult to injury by being caused by our own stress or emotional conflict.
Tension headaches can also be caused by anxiety, depression, insomnia and even sleep apnoea.
Manage lower back pain
Provided you receive a massage from an experienced and qualified therapist who is able to target the correct muscles, massage therapy can be an excellent way of relieving chronic lower back pain caused by muscle tension. Massage can also decrease lower back pain indirectly, by lowering stress levels, as pain receptors are less responsive when the body is in a more relaxed state.
Help lower blood pressure
A growing body of research indicates that massage therapy can play a significant role in improving cardiovascular health, mainly by helping to lower blood pressure. High blood pressure (or hypertension) can lead to cardiovascular issues including stroke and heart disease.
Massage is a safe, non-invasive, and soothing treatment for hypertension, particularly for people who experience stress on a frequent basis. If treated regularly, massage patients demonstrate long-term improvement in stress levels and heart rate.
Relieve the symptoms of depression
Massage can help with depression in several ways. Physically, a client with depression can have a ‘structural collapse’, meaning they become physically compromised in certain ways, such as hunching over and tightening muscles – particularly around the diaphragm, shoulders, and ribs.
Massage therapy can help alleviate these symptoms, enabling the patient to bring the body back to a more healthy alignment – and improving the breathing and energy levels. In addition, the act of physical touch and nurturing can provide significant emotional relief to someone suffering from depression.
A preliminary study of the effects of a single Full Body Massage on the immune function (including pituitary, adrenal and hypothalamic activity) of normal individuals suggested that significant biological effects can be achieved. This may have positive indications for helping those with inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.
Improved sleep helps prevent some chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and depression. It also helps with our coordination and stops us being drowsy at work. This is essential for those working equipment or machinery – and for those that simply need to be alert on the job (which is most of us, right?)
Even just a half hour of massage can help reduce cortisol and adrenaline levels and relieve negative stress symptoms such as headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure or chest pain. Reduced stress levels can also help prevent some harmful behaviors such as overeating, drinking or substance abuse.
Why is Massage Important?
With just a few benefits of a single massage is show how important massage is due to the fact that we face those problems daily!
