While the occasional back rub from your sweetie is wonderful, new studies are showing that professional massage may have more significant benefits than just feeling great (as if you need another reason!).
Multiple new studies are concluding that massage can help with many significant and increasingly common ailments such as:
Chronic Pain – more and more people are dealing with some kind of chronic pain, whether it be in the low back, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, or diabetic nerve pain. Massage has demonstrated an increased level of functionality and more pain reduction versus traditional medical treatment. Plus, massage patients were using less anti-inflammatory drugs than others.
Anxiety and Depression – needless to say, these are also growing issues in our modern culture. Luckily, massage has been shown to decrease cortisol (the stress hormone) levels by up to 50% in one treatment. Additionally, massage stimulates the production of serotonin and dopamine, two neurotransmitters which help to reduce depression.
Reduce Blood Pressure – regular treatments are proven to reduce blood pressure.
Boost Immunity – massage treatments can increase the activity level of killer T-cells in the body, the cells which kill off bacteria and infections.
