The Health Benefits Of Receiving Massage Therapy

Aug 17, 2007
There are many reasons to get a massage. First, it can relax you and make you feel less stressed. It can also help loosen up stiff muscles and make exercising easier. There are several reasons why more and more people are choosing to get a massage on a regular basis.

There are many health benefits to receiving massage therapy. Various health conditions can cause one's muscles to become stiff and rigid, two factors that will greatly benefit from a massage. Massage therapy also promotes range of movement and relaxes the entire body.

Massage therapy has also been shown to greatly relieve stress and some of the physical symptoms associated with it. This includes a decrease in overall anxiety and respiratory rates, an increase in white blood cells which helps to kill viruses before they have an opportunity to truly invade the body, and a great benefit to the body's immune system.

For some medical conditions, massage therapy can decrease the level of pain a person feels on a daily basis. This, of course, can help stimulate a better attitude and overall feeling of physical and mental well being. Message therapy is also used to help treat depression because it helps to relax the body and mind.

It has also been shown to facilitate recovery for a variety of medical conditions both while the patient is in the hospital and following the hospital stay. In addition, massage therapy can also be helpful in decreasing blood pressure in those with hypertension.

Massage therapy has also been shown to relieve pain in those suffering from migraines, and promote alertness and performance in office workers when performed regularly. The list of benefits and medical advantages just continues to grow.

While message therapy has been proven to help those with many different conditions, it is very important to remember that it does not cure the condition. Because of this, it is necessary that you receive the proper care for your condition in addition to receiving massage therapy.

There are different types of messages used for different reasons and conditions. A massage therapist can help you find the one that will best fit your needs and be most appropriate for your condition or reason for wanting the massage. While it is relaxing to get a massage every once in a while, it is necessary to go on a regular basis if you are seeking massage therapy as a means of helping to heal a particular condition.
