The Benefits of Massage

It counteracts all that sitting you do

Most individuals are dealing with some kind of postural stress. Desk workers, beware. More advanced forms of postural stress show up as pain or weakness in the low back and gluteals caused by prolonged periods of sitting.

Luckily, massage can counteract the imbalance caused from sitting, which means you can keep your desk job—as long as you schedule a regular massage.

 

It soothes anxiety and depression

Human touch, in a context that is safe, friendly and professional, can be incredibly therapeutic and relaxing.

Women diagnosed with breast cancer who received massage therapy three times a week reported being less depressed and less angry, according to a 2005 study published in the International Journal of Neuroscience.

And, a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, found that patients who were depressed and anxious were much more relaxed and happy, and had reduced stress levels after massage.

It boosts immunity

A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that massage boosts patients' white blood cell count (which plays a large role in defending the body from disease).  It also improves immune function for individuals with HIV.

It improves sleep

Not only can massage encourage a restful sleep—it also helps those who can’t otherwise comfortably rest and relieved pain in patients with chronic tension headaches.

 

It relieves headaches

Next time a headache hits, try booking a last-minute massage. Massage decreases frequency and severity of tension headaches.

Research from Granada University in Spain found that a single session of massage therapy has an immediate effect on perceived pain in patients with chronic tension headaches.
