The Benefits of Regular Massage

Why do you feel great after a massage? The benefits of regular massage can be significant. One theory has it that massage releases toxins. It is a feasible idea. But researchers no longer believe that toxin-release comes into play.

In a new study, researchers asked subjects to cycle until they were exhausted. Each subject then received a leg massage – but for only one leg. Ten minutes after the massage, researchers took muscle tissue samples from each leg.

Protein levels provided evidence that two things were happening:

  • The massage reduced inflammation
  • Additional energy was generated for muscle healing

This finding fits neatly into a 2007 study. In that trial, massage relieved muscle pain by as much as 50 percent.

The “hands on” approach is a proven winner.

Other benefits of massage:

  • Relieves Muscular Tension and Pain
  • Improves Circulation and Digestion
  • Increases Joint Mobility and ROM
  • Improves Posture
  • Reduces Blood Pressure
  • Strengthens the Immune System
  • Reduces Mental and Physical Fatigue and Stress
  • Improves Sleep, Concentration and Reduces Anxiety
  • Improves Energy and Alertness
  • Detoxifies the body by assisting in elimination of metabolic wastes
  • Creates an Overall Sense of Well-Being

Massage Therapy can also benefit many chronic conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, TMJ dysfunction, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, fibromyalgia, sciatica, stress/anxiety, migraine/tension headaches, tendonitis and sports injuries. It is also an excellent self care practice to maintaining your total well being.
