Do you suffer from chronic pain, headaches, anxiety, or any other discomfort on a regular basis? If so, you’re probably looking for any and all solutions to help you. While its true that there are medications available to treat these problems, nobody wants to rely on drugs for relief. Thankfully, there exists an all-natural treatment that not only addresses physical problems, but helps to treat mental strain as well.

Massage therapy is a treatment that aims to provide a holistic approach to a better, more comfortable everyday life. Each session addresses physical pain or other problems while providing a relaxing experience that is therapeutic from brain to body.

Physical Health Benefits

As you may have guessed, the massage is the main part of massage therapy. In a session, a licensed masseuse will work throughout your entire body section-by-section addressing pain, soreness, or flexibility concerns. Areas of focus are often the neck & shoulders – where most people hold their tension – and the back that suffers from manual labor & desk work.

They will then massage various muscle groups to stimulate blood flow to tense, sore, or weaker muscles, which help them to repair, recover, and relax more easily to make you stronger & more flexible. This makes it beneficial for those recovering from surgery or sports injuries as well as those who have chronic pain from work. The masseuse can also stimulate your lymph nodes to help detoxify your system and strengthen your immune system as a result.

Mental Health Benefits

The physical benefits of massage therapy are understandable, but not many consider the mental and emotional effects a massage can have.
Relieving tension in your muscles can help to reduce stress and anxiety that is built up, freeing you of the worries that caused them. Massages have also been shown to reduce the production of cortisol – the stress hormone – while increasing dopamine & serotonin production which alleviate depression & anxiety. This, in combination with music & aromatherapy used in many massage therapy studios, creates a peaceful, therapeutic environment to unwind & forget your troubles.
