Massage is beneficial for several health issues, and patients almost always walk away feeling additional emotional, physical, and psychological benefits. Improved mood, effective anxiety management, reduced stress, and improved energy levels are some of the common benefits we see from proper massage therapy treatment. Our hands-on treatments are designed to reduce stress, relieve tension, improve circulation, reduce anxiety, and improve sleep. Here are some of the benefits we have seen our patients experience with massage therapy, and why you need to consider adding massage into part of your health and wellness fitness routine. 

Relaxation at its Finest

One of the greatest benefits to massage therapy is how it focused on relaxing your body. When the body is under stress, it will start to produce cortisol, the stress hormone. Too much cortisol leads to several problems including weight gain, insomnia, headaches, digestive issues, and more. Massage therapy has been found to help reduce cortisol levels in the body, helping the body relax.

Effective Stress Management

When you focus on finding ways to reduce stress, it has been proven that massage therapy can help with stress. Regular massage therapy has been able to help patients with increased energy levels, pain reduction, and improved mood. 

Reduce Blood Pressure Levels 

Too much stress causes havoc to the body. Massage therapy not only targets stress in the muscles, it helps to reduce blood pressure levels related to stress. Regular massage can assist in reducing the systolic and diastolic blood pressure and cortisol levels in the body. A reduction in blood pressure can help to decrease the risk of health issues like kidney failure, heart attacks, and strokes.

Improved Circulation

Massage therapy has multiple benefits including improved circulation. Improved circulation will allow the body to have access to the nutrients it needs to maintain proper health. Nutrients delivered to the muscles help them to grow stronger and start repairing any damaged tissue. During a massage, a patient will feel hands-on pressure, which helps to move the blood around and pushed it through the damaged and congested areas of the body. New blood can flow into those muscles, delivering fresh nutrients to aid in healing the area. When the muscles are being pressed and manipulated, it helps to remove lactic acid from the muscles, helping to improve overall body function. 

Proper Posture

Office ergonomics are often talked about, with companies spending thousands of dollars in lost productivity due to employees missing work with chronic pain. Posture is almost always one of the underlying issues causing people to have pain, stiffness, and spasms in the muscles. Massage therapy will focus on helping the body to come back to its proper alignment form. When the muscles are loosened and relaxed, it makes it easier for the joints to have proper range of motion and flexibility. Massage therapy will help to give the body back the proper posture it needs to function in the correct manner. 

Improved Immune System

Regular massage therapy is not only designed to help you relax; it also helps to improve the immune system. Stress and cortisol go together, and they not only cause pain, they can make you vulnerable to illnesses. Regular massage therapy will help to enhance the body’s ability to deliver nutrients to the cells, keeping them stronger and healthier to take on immune system attacks.
