The Importance of Massage

It is becoming more apparent how the importance of regular massage therapy can play an important role in your overall health. We might think a massage as a luxury or as a way to pamper yourself. But there’s growing evidence that massage therapy actually has a variety of medical benefits regardless of the condition of your body.

A full body massage can boost the immune function. It can have multiple cardiovascular benefits (like lower heart rate and blood pressure). And finally, regular massage therapy (along with standard asthma treatments) can improve lung function in children.

Nowadays, everyone wants to focus on a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise. However, the importance of regular massage therapy can not be underestimated. Massage is wonderful for someone with a lot of trigger points and carries chronic muscle tension. Massage works to release that muscle tension and helps to lessen the amount of inflammation in the body. This can ultimately help drop the cortisol response and have a variety of positive health outcomes that aren’t immediately evident.

Massage also has the ability to help with pain. For example, patients who have back pain can achieve dramatic pain reduction when working with massage therapists. Other disorders, like arthritis and fibromyalgia, are areas where massage therapy can be very helpful.
