Five Surprising Work Benefits of Massage Therapy that we bet you didn’t know.
Believe it or not, researchers estimate that 80% of disease is caused by stress. The very word itself suggests it,
The stress of work and every day living can trigger many health problems such as high blood pressure,migraines, back problems, poor circulation and susceptibility to illness, and many others.
Millions of people develop illnesses or chronic health conditions because of stress. How often have you said yourself “I wish I could handle this better!”
The good news is you can! To counteract stress, you must have a self-care plan in place. And while diet and exercise are critical to balancing the impact of stress, they’re not always the most welcome part of a stress care plan.
Massage on the other hand, is the one lifestyle “correction” measure that people love. You show up with all that your knots and tight muscles, and we do our magic.
But how does massage, typically called a feel good or pampering therapy help you to manage every day stress?
Massage has been clinically proven to:
•reduce blood pressure •strengthen your immune system
•increase circulation •increase oxygen
•break the cycle of pain -increase flexibility
•decrease stress hormones
Because massage removes toxins and inflammation from your body, it gives your body a chance to slow down and heal. That loosey-goosey sensation you have after massage is actually working on a deeper level to break old stress and pain cycles.
For you, that means:
1.Greater mental clarity and alertness.
2.Speedy recovery from fatigue.
3.Aching back and migraines significantly diminish.
4.Much less susceptibility to disease.
5.Significantly reducing stress
Tip the scales in your favor… And keep it that way!
Include massage as a part of your self care plan.
