Massages are often sold as a purely indulgent treat that you get when you visit a spa or go on holidays, but there’s so much more to massage than just a feel good treat. Did you know that the symptoms of many health problems can be reduced and even eliminated with regular massage?
Here are a few conditions that massage can work really well on; a few you probably know and some that may surprise you!
Stress – It’s no surprise that a regular dose of massage therapy is good for your stress levels, it works by helping to lower your blood pressure, improve your quality of sleep, and by reducing your stress levels, it’s also thought to help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Lower Back Pain – This is such a common problem, often caused by bad posture at work. Poor posture and sitting for too long can cause a lot of lower back problems. Get your massage therapist on the case and you can hopefully wave goodbye to a sore back.
Joint Stiffness – Massage can be a blessed relief for people dealing with the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis and other joint problems.
Circulation – There are a whole range of health problems that can be caused by bad circulation, so boosting your circulation will be a bonus for your whole body. Regular massage helps to get the blood moving, getting essential nutrients to where they are needed in your tissues and vital organs much faster. Can also help to improve the circulation of lymph – the fluid that carries metabolic waste away from your muscles and internal organs.
