Believe it or not, the benefits of regular massage are about more than the instant relaxation you feel post treatment. As outlined by professional body, Massage and Myotherapy Australia, each session is a building block, training your body to maintain its relaxed state and teaching your muscles to remain loose even during high-stress periods. Here are four key benefits of regular massage therapy.
- Pain Relief – Regular massage is a great tool for pain management. As well as addressing specific problem areas, massage can help alleviate pain tied to injuries, arthritis and a range of other conditions. After regular sessions you may see benefits like a reduction in need for pain medications.
- Immune System Support – It’s a well-known fact that people with high levels of stress are more likely to get sick more often. This stress often leads to other negative side effects such as lack of sleep, a bad diet and a weakened immune system. Regular massage sessions help alleviate stress and, as a result, improve your wellbeing.
- Injury Resilience – Massage plays an important role as a supplement to standard injury rehabilitation procedures like physiotherapy. By encouraging blood flow and relaxing muscles, it helps the rehabilitating injured area to become more flexible and heal at an accelerated rate.
- Improved Posture – Massage can loosen the muscles and alleviate any pain caused by bad posture. This will enable your body to position itself more naturally.
With so many benefits to be gained, it’s natural to want to book in some sessions!
