5 Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy in Medina OH

Everyone loves a good back rub or a spa day, but the benefits of massage therapy are more than skin deep. Those who choose to addition their health regimen with regular massages will not only enjoy a relaxing hour, but they will see the benefits carry through the days and weeks after the appointment!

  1. Reduces Inflammation
    Often muscles get inflamed due to intense workouts, or even certain conditions like poor ergonomics or poor sleep position. Helping bring blood flow to these areas through massage can decrease the inflammation.

  2. Increased Blood Flow
    Massage promotes circulation because of how the pressure created by the massage technique actually moves blood through the congested areas. The release of this same pressure causes new blood to flow in.

  3. Improved Digestion
    Certain massage techniques can increase the metabolism of nutrients and antioxidants through the release of enzymes. When metabolizing faster, the body is more able to flush out toxins, allowing for digestion to work at its maximum potential. These reactions also help to reduce cramping, gas, bloating, and constipation.

  4. Improved Posture
    Poor posture is when our spine is situated in unnatural positions for long periods of time resulting in increased stress on the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. This prolonged poor positioning results in a buildup of pressure in the surrounding soft tissue. Massage can relax and loosen the muscles made sore by bad posture, allowing your body to position itself in its natural-and pain-free-posture. With ongoing massage the muscles are loosened and relaxed-joints have greater range of motion and pressure points are relieved.

  5. Relieve Headaches
    Massage therapy helps to relieve headaches by easing muscle tension, relieving muscle spasms, releasing shortened muscles, and relaxing tension held in the muscles of the head, shoulders, and neck. When muscle tension eases, there is less pressure on the nerves and blood vessels that supply them. Oxygen-rich blood circulation improves, which also relieves pain.
