BENEFITS OF MASSAGE
Did you know that sitting is deemed the new smoking? Did you know that an inactive and sedentary lifestyle will yield many sicknesses and diseases? Have you noticed that you are rendered sedentary do to chronic aches and pains?
Well here’s some good news, massage can help remedy some of these issues! Massage can increase flexibility and range of motion, it can help prevent muscle injury, increase circulation, increase endorphin production (the body’s natural painkiller), reduce or eliminate chronic pain, muscle aches, spasms, and headaches. Massage can also improve the quality of sleep, lower stress levels, and boost the immune system.
How often should you receive a massage?
This will depend on your overall health. Typically, someone with no specific complaints or problem areas would most likely benefit from monthly massages for maintenance purposes. However, those with more chronic pains and problem areas will benefit more from receiving massages once or twice a week to achieve the desired results. Once those results are achieved monthly follow-up visits are encouraged to help keep old pains from returning.
Many people find it extremely beneficial to receive massage in conjunction with other supportive measures like chiropractic treatments and physical therapy. Exercise, getting adequate rest and a healthy diet will help maintain your results from your massage for a substantial period of time.
There some health conditions that may require a doctor’s approval prior to treatment. Some conditions may contraindicate massage all together; this means in some cases a certain illness can prevent someone from receiving any massage service. Please do not hesitate to consult your primary care physician if you have a condition you are uncertain about and would like to start receiving massage services.
