Relieve Stress And Muscle Tension
Stress is a mental and physical one that can be brought on by numerous factors. Regardless of its cause, though, regular massage can help to loosen tightened neck muscles, and reduce tension in the back subsequently ridding you of the physical symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. Even a quick five minute massage when you have the opportunity and the spare time can help you unwind after a hard day’s work.

Reduce Muscle Cramps And Stiffness
Aching muscles and stiff joints can be caused by physical exertion, or by adopting unusual stances for prolonged periods of time. If you work at a computer all day then your wrists, fingers, and shoulders may become stiff. If you enjoy or endure regular physical exercise then you may experience muscle cramps when your body attempts to unwind. Massage loosens the muscles naturally, therefore reducing the likelihood and severity of stiffness. This is also a preventative technique, as well as a method of treating these problems.

Improve Breathing
Massage relaxes muscles throughout the body, including in the chest and round the respiratory system. Regular massage, therefore, can prove a highly effective technique in improving your breathing. If you suffer from shallow breathing for any reason, then you should consider regular massage because not only will this promote deeper breathing but it will subsequently improve blood and oxygen flow around the body which helps to remove toxins, lower blood pressure, and generally promote good health.

Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure can lead to strokes, heart attacks, and other serious health complaints. It can be caused by stress and poor circulation among other problems. Massage helps to reduce stress levels and improve the flow of blood and oxygen around the body. The cumulative effect that this offers helps to lower blood pressure, therefore lowering your risk of suffering at the hands of what is commonly called “the silent killer”.

Detoxify The Body
The lymphatic system primarily helps to purge the body of unwanted and potentially harmful toxins. A good lymph flow will therefore ensures the proper disposal of waste products and can be improved through regular massage. It therefore helps to detoxify the body and wash away the harmful toxins and other materials that most of us have coursing through our bodies.

Relieve Stress And Muscle Tension
Tense muscles cause bad posture because our bodies react to pain by correcting the position of our muscles so that we experience less pain. Unfortunately, this can have a detrimental effect on other areas of our body. Relaxed muscles, which can be promoted with regular massage, will help to ensure that we have and continue to retain good posture. This can prove useful for people that are likely to suffer repetitive stress problems as well as those that work in a very physical capacity in their daily job.
