Massages can do far more than help you relax (though they do that very well indeed). Here are six healthy reasons to book an appointment today.
Catch those Zzzzz’s
Ever felt the urge to doze off during a relaxing massage? And ever noticed how you sleep so much better at night after having one? Well, massage has been shown to reduce sleep disturbance and cause deeper sleep.
Eases pain and muscle soreness
This might be an obvious one but it’s well worth mentioning. Massage can help loosen knots in muscles and encourage blood flow. It can improve flexibility and help prevent injuries - gym bunnies we’re looking at you!
Back pain is so common now and a good ol’ massage can really help relieve your pain, make you more comfortable and ultimately help you sleep better at night. Win, win we think.
Suffer from headaches? Research has found that massage therapy can reduce tension headaches and migraines.
Boosts your mood and soothes anxiety
Massages are relaxing and if they help you sleep better and cause fewer headaches, it makes perfect sense that they will boost your mood, but it goes a bit further than that. Massage can also soothe anxiety and depression. Massages can reduce levels of that pesky stress hormone, cortisol, and boost your happy hormones, serotonin and dopamine, resulting in a better mood and lower blood pressure.
Massage therapy has been linked to boosting your immune system. In 2010 researchers found that a 45-minute massage can increase the number of white blood cells that help defend the body from disease.
For the love of hair and skin
Better sleep, less illness, and better moods are bound to make you feel better. And what happens when you feel better? You look better.
Massage increases your blood flow, which plumps up your skin, and encourages lymphatic drainage (flushes toxins out of your cells to allow more nutrients in), so regular massages can add vitality to your complexion and your locks. We want in!
No more slouching
It’s no surprise that most of us don’t have great postures and a lot of people end up carrying a lot of stress in their shoulders and neck. Lucky for us then that massage can help counteract this and improve your posture.
Excuse us, we’re just off to book a massage.
