Why You Should Add Massage Therapy Into Your Healthcare Regimen

What exactly are the benefits of receiving massage therapy?   Useful for all of the conditions listed below and more, massage can: •Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion. •Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system. •Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin. •Increase joint flexibility. •Lessen depression and anxiety. •Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation. •Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles. •Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller. •Relieve migraine pain.   There is no denying  massage therapy can be a powerful benifit in your healthcare regimen.  Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related and nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This leads to: •Decreased anxiety. •Enhanced sleep quality. •Greater energy. •Improved concentration. •Reduced fatigue.   In addition, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance massage provides can often be just as valuable as the physical benefits. In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes flow throughout the body, with profound effects. Research shows that with massage: •Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain. •Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function •Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety. •High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones. •Preterm infants have improved weight gain.   Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Getting a massage can do you a world of good.  Going for massage at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. And remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.   Are you interested in experiencing the many benefits of massage?  Come into SpineWise Bowmanville to enjoy a massage with one of our Registered Massage Therapists.  Call us at 905-623-8388
