We constantly hear a lot about how massage is great for people’s health but a lot of the time people do not really specify as to why and how this is the case. Here we have made a list of some of the most common reasons that people will use massage therapy as a way to have healthier existence:
Sleep – As most of us will know sleep is very important for people to function properly and after a very good night’s sleep we will generally have more energy and more motivation for the day that lies ahead. Massage gives people that find sleeping difficult a great way to sleep better. Taking time out to relax can teach us to switch off when we need to and this can carry through our general day to day life
Aches and Pains – A much better method than taking a tablet or a pill, massage offers a pure holistic and side effect free way of dealing with aches, pains and muscle strains. Many people use massage regularly for things like back pain and also sports injuries for example.
Pleasure – It’s not all about the health benefits of massage, sometimes it is just a great way to pass some time. Especially for those that like the more saucy options which exist such as an erotic tantric massage for example which are also a very common form of massage in many parts of the world
Immune system – As well as helping with the symptoms such as aches and pains, massage is also said to help the body with the flow of lymph through the body, which is there to help fight infection and disease and so massage can actually be used as a way to protect your body
There are also many other benefits to massage which we will focus on in part 2 of this post!
