5 Key Benefits of Massage Therapy

Regular massages provide therapeutic relief to people of all ages and walks of life, from the competitive athlete to the over-stressed business person. Not only does it help you relax, but the massage therapy services at our Edmonton clinic are also crucial to improving the quality of your everyday life.

Here are 5 key benefits you will experience from scheduling regular massages:

1. Decreases Your Stress Hormone Levels

When your body is tense, or under a lot of pressure, it produces unhealthy levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. This can contribute to a number of health issues including:

  • Weight gain
  • Sleeplessness
  • Headaches
  • Digestive problems

Regular massage therapy has been shown to decrease your body’s levels of cortisol, allowing your body to enter into recovery mode and promote better moods, feelings of relaxation, and reduced stress levels.

 

2. Improves Skin Tone

Regular massages can give you a healthy glow by improving blood circulation in and under the skin. This aids in the nutrition cycle and encourages cell regeneration, which in turn will help improve the suppleness and moisture of your skin, instantly leading to a younger, more vibrant appearance.

 

3. Promotes Muscle Relaxation

During regular visits, your massage therapist can focus on areas of your body that are stiff, injured, or simply sore. Good massage techniques are a wonderful way of:

  • Releasing trigger points
  • Stretching and elongating muscles
  • Breaking down adhesions
  • Releasing endorphins (pain-killing hormones)

By increasing the blood flow to the tissues, and releasing the tension, regular massages will not only alleviate any pain or soreness you have but will also help eliminate toxins and oxygenate your cells.

 

4. Improves Posture

If you sit a lot or frequently use a computer at work, then you may be prone to tension in your neck, shoulder areas, or lower back. Regular massages can help relieve any discomfort or pain by lengthening the muscles and balancing out the body, for improved postural alignment.

Moreover, with the services of an experienced massage therapist, your joints will have greater freedom and range of motion, and all your pressure points will be relieved.

 

5. Strengthens Your Body’s Immune System

It is very well-known that people who experience high levels of stress are more vulnerable to illness and injury. This is because stress often leads to sleep disturbances and poor nutrition, which directly impacts your body’s immune system and its ability to protect you from infections and bacteria.

Regular massage sessions will not only help reduce your stress, but it can also boost your immune system’s cytotoxic capacity, enhancing your body’s ability to:

  • Fight infections
  • Deliver nourishment
  • Keep you healthy
  • Prevent bacteria and viruses from entering your body

Apart from keeping you relaxed and happy, regular massage therapies will also keep your immune system strong and resilient.

I came in to enquire about some skin imperfections and botox etc. The staff was especially sensitive to what I needed and complimented what I already had. I hope the staff excel in the areas of dematology/age tolerations in their career. They are a must with this area of beauty. Thanks for all of the valuable information.
