6 Reasons (Excuses?) to Get More Massages
Most people think of massage therapy as strictly a luxury in life, something that you only treat yourself to every once in awhile. At Moore Chiropractic, we believe that regular massages are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Here are just a couple of the reasons you can benefit from more massages in your life.
Help with Anxiety and Depression – Massages aren’t just meant to make your body feel better. Your brain benefits from the increased production of seratonin, which is a hormone that aids in relaxation.
Better Sleep – The same relaxation hormones that help fight anxiety and depression assist your brain in reaching deep sleep, which is the most restorative cycle of sleep.
Fend off colds: Due to the reduction in stress as well as the higher white blood cell count (also a result of massage) regular massages keep your body better prepared to fight off colds and keep you healthy.
Lower Your Blood Pressure – Massage therapy can immediately reduce blood pressure and potentially keep it lower in the days following massage.
Improve your Posture – Office jobs involving sitting for long periods at a desk or lifestyle habits such as bad posture can lead to a weakening of the muscles around your spine. Massage helps to counteract this by reducing pain and encouraging proper muscle function.
Stop Headaches – There are plenty of people who suffer from regular tension headaches and think that they just have to deal with them. Regular therapeutic massages have been shown to decrease them both in frequency and severity, even with only one massage a month.
With these benefits, regular massage can help almost anyone. From Swedish massage to deep tissue and intra-oral massage, there is a style that can work for you. Our therapists are highly trained in multiple styles to offer a unique massage catered to your needs.
