The Health and Wellness Benefits of Professional Massage Therapy

The Health and Wellness Benefits of Professional Massage Therapy

July 31 2021
A professional massage is both relaxing and invigorating, but there are also many health and wellness benefits that you can experience through a regular schedule of massage therapy treatments. Here are just a few examples of valuable health benefits.

Pain reduction. Massage loosens, relaxes, and sometimes even stretches muscles. Tight muscles and muscle spasms can be the cause of lower back pain and other conditions that can affect your posture, your mobility, and your overall health. When muscles are relaxed through professional massage, that helps alleviate the muscle spasms that increase pain.

Better circulation. Professional massage stimulates your circulatory systems. This helps your blood deliver more oxygen and nutrients for healthier cells. It also helps your lymphatic system flush away toxins and waste products for a healthier body. Among other benefits, improved circulation can help you better manage conditions like pain and fatigue.

Improved range of movement. Whether you’ve recently suffered an injury or have a condition that affects your mobility, or just feel stiff in the mornings, massage therapy can help relax muscles and tendons to improve your range of movement for better health.

Better sleep. With regularly scheduled professional massages, the effects improve your body’s ability to relax, helping you achieve better sleep over time. Recently, studies have shown that there is a myriad of health conditions that can be improved through regular sleep.

More relaxation and better mood. Scheduling regular days at the spa let you block out time for self-care that you might otherwise neglect. The soothing relaxation of regular massages helps re-energize your body and lift your mood.
