Massage is one of the most popular wellness services available today. This is with good reason. Massage has a variety of benefits that we can all benefit from. It also can help people who have specific health problems. In this post, we will look at some of the benefits of massage.
The most common use for massage is to get relief from aches and pains. Aches and pains may come from work activities, athletic activities, or any other physical activity. We can get stiff and sore from sitting too much or just by going through a stressful situation.
There are a variety of specific instances where a massage can be very beneficial. *Many studies have shown that massage is effective for reducing pain in a number of situations, including lower back pain during pregnancy, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, carpel tunnel syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis.
Athletes can use massage to help with muscle soreness after strenuous workouts. Massage has been shown to help with delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS). Massage can help reduce muscle soreness and increase muscle recovery 24 hours after exercise. Massage is generally beneficial in reducing pain and restoring normal muscle activity. It is used more and more in sports therapy and the management of athletes.
Pain for improving mood and immune response. Moderate pressure massage has beneficial effects on the whole body, including the nervous system. It can help with depression, relaxation and stress response. And, since depression has a negative effect on our immune functions, massage improves that as well.
