The Benefits of Massage:
Massage therapy is extremely beneficial to people leading busy lifestyles suffering most commonly from work related stress. Massage will not only aid with mental relaxation but will work on physical symptoms of back and neck pain that comes from sitting for an extended period of time at a desk or from physical labour.
Many people wait until they are already in pain before turning to massage, but why let it get that bad? It is a good idea to take regular massage as a preventative measure so that such injuries do not occur. Regular massage maintenance will increase your overall sense of wellbeing for optimum physical and mental health.
How Massage Relieves Pain:
Massage helps to relieve and reduce pain in a few different ways. Firstly, it increases the flow of blood to joints and muscles, helping to warm them. Massage triggers the brain to release its own natural painkillers, and also helps to speed the flow of oxytocin. Oxytocin is a hormone that relaxes muscles as well as promoting a feeling of calm and contentment.
Massage is also incredibly relaxing both physically and mentally. It helps the muscles themselves to relax, and it also calms the stress and anxiety that you might feel because of your pain. The touch of massage can also help to stop the pain signals from getting through to the brain. This happens by sending other impulses as well as pain impulses along the nerves to the brain. Because there are too many impulses, the pain signals often don't get through, thus relieving pain.
