The Health Benefits of Massage

Many people have experienced the benefits that massage can bring in relieving aches and pains, and it is often for this reason that most people consider getting a rub-down. However, there are a multitude of other benefits that can be gained from receiving massages which make them a good choice for anyone. A number of conditions, some of which you may not expect, can be aided by massage.

Anxiety and depression

A massage can be very effective at relieving stress, and so can also help combat feelings of anxiety and depression. Your levels of serotonin and dopamine will increase after receiving a massage which can improve your mood, leaving you feeling more able to deal with situations that you would normally find quite stressful.

The levels of cortisol, a hormone that can cause stress will also decrease, helping to alleviate any feelings of anxiety.

Sleep problems

As a massage is so relaxing, it can also help you with any problems that you may have had sleeping. Because it also aids recovery, it can also help to make the sleep you do get more beneficial to your overall health.

Having a massage on a regular basis can make you calmer too. This will help you be more relaxed at bedtime, making it easier for you to sleep without worries turning over in your mind.

High blood pressure

Massage can help you manage high blood pressure without the need for medication. High blood pressure is a condition that can be suffered by men and women of any age, and many people have high blood pressure without even knowing it. When the levels of the stress hormone cortisol are reduced by massage, this can also help to lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Headaches

Massage can offer relief from headaches in the same way as it can muscle and joint pain. It can reduce the amount of pain that is experienced from tension headaches and it also has a number of benefits if you suffer from migraines. A massage can reduce the intensity of the migraine, which will make it less painful, and it can also reduce the frequency of them occurring. Massage can be a very effective alternative to taking medication for headaches, and can be an ideal solution for people who do not want to become reliant on painkillers.

Poor circulation

If you suffer from poor circulation then you may often experience tired and aching muscles. You may also find it difficult to keep your hands and feet warm, even in the summer. Massage is a very effective technique for improving circulation because as the areas of the body that are being massaged are compressed, the blood flow through this area is improved. If you receive a rub-down on a regular basis then this can significantly improve your circulation in the long term.

If you have suffered from any of the conditions that have been discussed above, then you may benefit from receiving a massage. It can also bring a number of other benefits that can improve your overall health and wellbeing, and you may be surprised at how well and refreshed you feel after receiving a massage.

As with so many other things in life, repetition is the key. In order to be most effective, the massages that you receive should be carried out on a regular basis. However, when something feels this good, it certainly isn’t a chore.
