Apart from being the go to when pampering yourself, massage can aid your mental and physical well-being, and is commonly considered to be a medically beneficial practice.
Massage is more than a luxury, it has real health benefits!
Massage has been used in just about every culture in history to relieve pain. From an early age, we learn that the touch of a hand can ease pain, for example a toddler will instinctively rub a ‘sore spot’.
It is widely known that a good rub-down will help to relieve pain of overworked, tight, stressed muscles. But massage can also ease pain for a variety of types and different levels of discomfort, including chronic pain, arthritis pain, headaches, pain related to fibromyalgia as well as pain caused from cancer or its treatment.
Massage will ease and eliminate pain in many ways. First off, it will increase blood and lymph circulation to sore, stiff muscles and joints. This extra circulation can enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells which will aid in the muscle tissues to function more efficiently. More efficient functioning leads to the elimination of waste products and may boost the absorption of excess fluids and reduce swelling in soft tissues. As a result of having relaxed and less swollen muscles massage can also help to reduce pain related to nerve compression.
During a massage there is a release of Endorphins, which is the body’s natural production of pain relief so for people suffering with arthritis or fibromyalgia regular massage can have a positive impact.
