Massage therapy has a wide range of benefits that many people love. It is a form of manual therapy which is a hands-on approach, used with a variety of different techniques. Each practitioner has their own unique style that is worth trying. So what are some of the benefits of Massage therapy? Let's take a look!
#1 Stress relief
One of the biggest reasons people seek Massage therapy is for stress relief. Massage therapy can calm the nervous system and could even benefit those suffering from anxiety. It can support you in feeling relaxed and taken care of by putting your body in the parasympathetic response.
#2 Flushes toxins
Our lymphatic system relies on us to keep it moving, unlike the circulatory system which uses the heart as a pump. Massage can help stimulate the lymphatic system, keeping it moving and supporting our immune system in staying healthy.
#3 Improves sleep
Sleep can be impacted by stress and since Massage therapy can reduce stress this may improve your sleep by putting you into a relaxed state. Many people feel calm and rested after Massage therapy.
#4 Helps with posture and flexibility
Massage can help loosen tight muscles and release muscle tension. By doing this it can increase flexibility and support better posture. A massage therapist can teach you about maintaining proper posture and what that feels like in your body.
#5 Supports the body in healing
Massage therapy can help get out those tough knots in the body. It stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which puts the body into a balanced, calm state. In this state, the body can begin to facilitate its own healing.
