We tend to think that a massage is a luxury purely for relaxation purposes. If that’s the case, it’s hard to justify getting one, especially regularly. But I’m about to give you several reasons why it’s so much more than a fancy indulgence. In fact, I’m going to give you all the excuses you need to add it to your routine without an ounce of guilt involved!
The Benefits of Massage Therapy
Here’s your excuses, should you need them, to set an appointment for a massage right away!
Relaxation isn’t just an indulgence, it’s a key component to your health. Stress and tensions wreak havoc on your body both physically and emotionally. If you’re living in a constant state of stress, you probably have noticed you’ve been dealing with insomnia, digestive issues, headaches, weight gain, or all of the above. Even if you’re not constantly loaded down with stress, getting a massage will help protect you from falling into that unhealthy way of life.
Here at Amberwood Terrace, we are firm believers in encouraging our bodies to heal themselves. Through regular massages, you’ll benefit from better circulation. Promoting an environment in your body that allows for rich blood flow throughout will lead to healing in the stiff, tense, and damaged areas. In the midst of your massage, the pressure increases blood flow to those trouble areas as well as removes lactic acid. You’ll be on the road to healing immediately.
Lowers Blood Pressure
One in three adults suffer from high blood pressure. That’s a staggering statistic when high blood pressure is a key ingredient behind heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and a host of other scary health issues. Massage therapy lowers stress, promotes relaxation, and improves circulation, all of which impact blood pressure. A healthy lifestyle combined with regular massages could be all the blood pressure medicine you need!
Helps with Posture
Posture has a serious impact on our health. Choosing to use proper posture throughout your day is an excellent first step, but massage therapy as well as chiropractic care will go a long way in helping you make correct posture a natural thing. Massage will loosen and relax all those tensed muscles from poor posture. You’ll feel better and stand taller!
Boosts Immune System
All of these benefits to massage therapy play a role in your immune system. Your body is better equipped to fight off illness when it has healthy blood flow, lower levels of stress, and isn’t constantly trying to recover from high blood pressure and poor posture. If you’re still not sure you can justify a massage, consider it a vitamin or a flu shot that your body will love.
Enjoy a Massage!
See, massages aren’t a luxury, they’re a necessity! Throw out any feelings of guilt for indulging in an hour of pure relaxation, and simply enjoy it. Your body will thank you.
