Benefits of Massage

Getting a massage is one of life’s little treats that everyone should indulge in regularly. If you have never shouted yourself a massage now is the time to do it. I always walk out of the massage room feeling about 10 feet tall and floating on a cloud.

There are many health benefits to massage. First and foremost is relaxation. If you are stressed or anxious getting a massage cannot only help you physically but mentally as well. Massage helps to restore muscle tone and prevent the formation of adhesions within your muscles. It can assist with improving flexibility, joint range of motion and can help with your circulation and lymph drainage.

For an athlete (or someone who exercises regularly) massage can shorten the recovery time between sessions as it helps with the removal of waste products such as lactic acid from your muscles. It can also help to prevent injury.

If you have a job that requires you to sit at a computer all day you often develop very tight muscles throughout your neck and back. These muscles can cause a lot of discomfort. Massage helps to loosen these muscles, which will then enable you to sit with better posture. Sitting with good posture can prevent these muscles from getting so tight.

Massage can also help to relieve neck and back pain as well as headaches.

So as you can see there are many benefits associated with having a massage. If you have been thinking about getting a massage, now is the time to book one in. Call us on 9960 3798 to book a massage. Go on, treat yourself!!
