Benefits of a holistic healing massage
I often get asked, “Why should I have a massage?” "What are the benefits?" Some of the conditions that I see most often are muscle tension (especially shoulders and neck), headaches, fatigue, anxiety and depression. Having a massage can:
Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defence system
Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles
Reduce spasms and cramping
Increase joint flexibility
Relieve migraine/headache pain
Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion
Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation
Improve the condition of skin – the body's largest organ
Lessen depression and anxiety
Ease dependence on medication
Release endorphins-amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
Massage and other body therapies are very powerful. Although massage is often considered to be a luxury or a treat, it can be a vital part of your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in the fast-paced world of the 21st century may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.
The benefits for you are:
Enhanced sleep quality
Clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance that bodywork provides is just as vital and valuable as the physical benefits.
Increase the benefits with frequent visits
Getting regular massage can make a significant difference in your life. Regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you'll be and your sense of well-being.
Budgeting time and money for bodywork at regular intervals is truly an investment. Consider massage appointments to be a necessary part of your health and wellness plan and talk to me about working out a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.
