Today, in our busy lifestyles as we race around from place to place, it’s easy to forget to dedicate time to looking after our bodies, both the emotional and the physical sides. And with such limited time, when it comes to a massage it can often be considered a luxury to find the time or you might think it’s something you can go without.
But, when it comes to taking care of your body, the machine that gets you from place to place in your every day life, there are no luxuries and massage has many benefits to ensure that your machine is always running at it’s best.
So, what are the benefits of massage?
One of the benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals that produce feelings of wellbeing.
Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
There are many things that can benefit from a massage when it comes to repairing and maintaining your body physically. Some of these physical benefits of massage include:
- reduced muscle tension
- improved circulation
- stimulation of the lymphatic system
- increased joint mobility and flexibility
- improved skin tone
- improved recovery of soft tissue injuries
John McGeagh of Feelrite massage at our Henley Beach clinic says:
“Remedial massage is the assessment and treatment of soft tissues issues which helps with pain, injury management and assists with rehabilitation”
To help you function at your best everyday, incorporating a massage into your lifestyle and making time for it, not as a luxury but as a tool to being your best, we recommend booking a massage in once a month. Just 30 minutes or an hour is all you need.
