The New Year has arrived, which means it’s the perfect time to make a fresh start. A resolution that proves to be quite popular after the gluttonous and stressful Christmas period is one that focuses on looking after your body. As beneficial as laying off the alcohol and starting a diet may be, there are other ways in which you can care for yourself with different massage therapies.
Although some people are dubious regarding the effects of massage, there are some treatments you can invest in which not only make you feel more relaxed and calm but can remedy various ailments and can also be medically beneficial.
Primarily, people go for massages to relieve stress, but stress can often manifest itself more severely in certain people. Stress can invoke a feeling of anxiety which can take its toll on the body in different ways. Massage can lower your heart rate and blood pressure and increases ‘feel good’ endorphins which are found in serotonin and dopamine.
It is suggested that those who suffer from stress and anxiety should schedule massage sessions on a monthly basis in order to maintain these levels. Regular massage could improve your overall health by making stress from daily pressures easier to deal with.
Poor circulation can be caused by a variety of factors including bad eating habits, lack of exercise and smoking. However, poor circulation can also be caused by work related issues such as sitting at a desk for hours at a time, which can lead to aching and stiffness.
Massage can enhance blood flow and make the body function more easily. The process of massage will physically move blood through congested areas of the body with applied pressure.
Head massage can dramatically improve migraines and tensions in the head and they can be performed in a preventative way to reduce the chances of headaches by massaging trigger points where muscle spasms take place. However, massage can also help during migraine attacks and tension headaches by focussing on the neck, shoulders and head to reduce the pain.
Again, there are many contributing factors to headaches, such as stress and sleep disturbance, which is why taking a proactive approach with massage can have more than one advantage.
