Health Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is beneficial because it reduces waste products such as lactic and carbonic acid that accumulates after working out, which in turn causes cramping, pain and irritability that, can happen after exercise at the gym. It also enhances body awareness, releases tension, and induces a sense of deep relaxation.

Health Benefits of Massage Therapy :

Relieves Stress

Stress relief is key to achieving a healthier lifestyle. Even a single massage session can significantly lower heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels all of which help reduce daily stress.

Encourages Relaxation

Massage can help the body enter a calming rest-and-recovery mode an effect that lingers long afterwards the massage is over.

Boosts Immunity

Massage increases white blood cells in the body, which are responsible for fighting diseases. Massage can naturally boost the cytotoxic capacity of the immune system, which is the action level of the natural ‘killer cells’ of the body.

Improves Rehabilitation After Injury

Rehabilitation could be frustrating. A continual massage program can accelerate the process of recovery, as well as help you relax and remain motivated.

Beauty

Massage enhances blood circulation which plumps up sagging skin and promotes lymphatic drainage adding vitality to dry and lackluster skin. You do not even need to make an appointment with your health practitioner, just using daily circular motions with your fingertips on your face and scalp for a few minutes can make a difference.
