Little-known Benefits of Clinical Massage

Massage modifications the chemical production in your brain. These changes help to bring down both stress and pain in your entire body. This is important as it means that you do not have to physically massage the right part that is causing you problems. This means that if you don’t want another person touching, for instance, your lower back, you should ask them to massage somewhere you do feel comfortable instead. The pressure on those muscular tissues will activate the chemical reactions in your brain. After a little bit, the muscles in your lower back will loosen up also.



I trust that what you’ve read so far about massage therapy has been informative. The other parts of this article should go a long way toward clearing up any uncertainty that may remain about the subject.

Some experts say that regular massages help your body stay inn good health. Studies have been conducted that demonstrate massage offers a boost to your immune system and that makes it easier to fight off diseases. This occurs due to the fact that massage increases your body’s de-stressors. For example, studies have shown that massage can bring down your body’s levels of cortisol. Cortisol is induced by stress and it assaults your body’s immune system so reducing your stress levels can only help you stay healthy.

Are you aware that massage can help reduce your blood pressure? It brings down your hypertension as well. This is because massage triggers the vagus nerve and this nerve is responsible for regulating your blood pressure as well as several other vital functions in the body. A study conducted in 2005 discovered that individuals who have high blood pressure showed a noticeable improvement in their condition after getting ten ten-minute massages over the course of a few weeks.

You can massage yourself as well. Lots of people assume that they must be massaged by someone else but this isn’t true. You don’t have to even massage the precise part that is in pain so long as you get close to the area. One example of this is a person suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome can help himself by massaging his own arms several times a week.

There are all sorts of benefits to getting massaged regularly. Lots of individuals are aware that massage can be relaxing but it can help to treat many health conditions too. The honest truth is that there isn’t any one form of massage that is better or worse than any other. A great massage requires putting enough pressure to make indentations on the skin and nothing more. So why don’t you try it out for yourself and experience its benefits?
