Surprising benefits of massage therapy

There’s something so blissful and tranquil being in a relaxed atmosphere with candlelight and a sweet essence assaulting your senses while lying down on the massage table. The feeling is out of this world. Going to the spa can be one of the best decisions you can ever make towards your health, beauty and well-being.

Massage is the rubbing and manipulating of the skin, muscles and ligaments. A good massage will wake your muscles, and nervous system and also refresh your skin. Most times, it will find you drifting off as you give in to the feel of loosened knots and bolts in your body. A full body massage is packed with many benefits since massage is now more of a medical treatment than physical.

Generally, people use massage for relaxation and well-being but today massage therapy is a treatment approach that is now growing in popularity.

Massage is an excellent way to indulge and pamper yourself. Your body needs it to renew itself and relieve you from stress. Much of the tension we experience ends up accumulating in our shoulders, chest and neck muscles and that’s why our breathing becomes restricted when we are stressed. It is advisable to take deep long breaths before you start your massage.


Massage therapy can relieve you from all sorts of pains especially if you’re experiencing symptoms like tiredness, back pain stress, headaches and anxiety. It is not uncommon for individuals who go through high levels of stress or are feeling unwell to consult a massage therapist. 

In few cases, people suffering from depression feel their symptoms decrease after a massage.

In addition to the above benefits, regular massage has been found to strengthen the immune system. The system is naturally weakened by stress combined with poor diet nutrition and sleep deprivation.

Occasional massage is great, but regular massage is a must in our sleep-deprived and taxing economy. And when complemented with consistent exercise, it will keep your body in its topmost form.

So, are you ready for a full-body massage? You won’t regret it, I promise.
Until then take care of yourself.
