Imagine how great you would feel if you got to have a mini-vacation , a personal time-out to just relax and feel good, every week. Professional massage is an affordable and easily accessible way to experience utter bliss while also relieving pain, and supporting overall health. While making massage a regular part of your routine may seem like a luxury it actually has a number of effects that can be a vital part of preventing illness and maintaining optimum health.
The physical mechanism of massage helps the body to heal by increasing oxygenation and blood flow and by helping to remove toxins from the body. Oxygenated tissue with fresh free-flowing blood supply is able to heal and recover from injury much more quickly than tissue that has stagnated and has a build-up of metabolic by-products.
When we are stressed physically or mentally our muscles tighten up. Over time, this creates holding patterns in our muscles which in turn create a new resting point which is this tense, tight state. This is further exacerbated by the formation of adhesions around these tightened muscles. Adhesions are formed when overlapping bands of muscle get stuck together. These are the the “crunches” and knots that we hear and feel when we turn a stiff neck or any other stressed out part of our body. Adhesions form at sites of injury or surgery or wherever we have holding patterns from stress. With regular massage, these adhesions can be broken down and your body can create a new, healthier normal resting point.
What brings most people to the massage table is that it feels really, really good. The amazing thing is that this kind of feeling good actually has positive physiological impacts. The pleasurable sensations associated with massage cause our bodies to release a cocktail of happy hormones (dopamine, seratonin, and oxytocin) while at the same time decreasing production of stress hormones (epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol). The cumulative effects of regularly boosting the good hormones and reducing the bad ones are vast. They include things like, relieving depression and anxiety, reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, increasing immune system function, reducing cravings, and accelerating healing.
So, whether you are looking to reduce your hospital bills in the future, or just to feel really, really good in the present, regular massage is the answer for you. Call one of our masseuses today to schedule your next appointment and find out how good it can feel to get healthy!
