The demand and popularity of massage therapy is growing everyday. It is no longer considered as an alternative option, rather it’s a mainstream treatment. If you are feeling tense or have been injured and have extensive muscle or nerve tissue damage, massage therapy is worth exploring. This therapy involves hands-on pressure that helps to relax your muscles through heat generation, circulation, and stretching. Massage helps to reduce tension and induces relaxation in your body. It also increases blood circulation in the injured muscle which helps to eliminate the tensity and reduce pain. Whether you are suffering from neck and back pain from sitting all day at your desk, or you are sore after a rough workout, massage therapy can promote muscle relaxation. This hands-on pressure improves circulation through the damaged areas of the body and by twisting and pulling techniques, it removes lactic acid from the muscle tissues. Improved circulation and supply of rich blood to the stiff and damaged muscle and tissues promotes healing and improves overall body function. Some studies have shown that regular massage therapy sessions can help to lower blood pressure in which it reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure. It can also help to relieve anxiety, reduce stress and improve sleep disturbances. High levels of stress can impact the body’s immune system and make your body vulnerable to many illnesses. Many back, neck and muscle pain is as a result of poor posture while standing or sitting. Your muscles get tense and become sore. Massage relaxes your body and loosens your muscle which allows your body to retain its organic, proper alignment. In addition, it improves flexibility and range of motion in your joints.
