Reasons You Should Schedule a Therapeutic Massage Today

by Aquarius Wellness | Jul 8, 2022 | , | 0 Comments

The weight of your world can sometimes be too much to carry, both literally and figuratively. Perhaps a sports injury is reducing your movement, or a steady increase in stress at work is causing a build-up of tension in your muscles. All of this can have huge impacts on your physical and mental health, negatively affecting your quality of life across the board.
It’s especially important to remember that there’s no reason to continue living like this if you don’t have to. Regular therapeutic massage has been proven to successfully alleviate many of these aches and pains, bringing your well-being back into balance.

Benefits of Therapeutic Massage

02 Reasons You Should Schedule a Therapeutic Massage Today

Therapeutic massage has been used for centuries to increase relaxation and reduce stress. While today’s stressors may be different than yesteryear, the results are the same; aches, pains, and anxiety or worry.

According to the Mayo Clinic, therapeutic massage is a fantastic way to help manage stress and reduce pain, providing a host of positive results. But what exactly are some of the physical benefits of therapeutic massage?

  • Better circulation – The power of restorative massage has been shown to result in improvements in blood circulation by means of manual manipulation of the tissues that have become stagnant through lack of use or injury, much like a moving body of water can become blocked by an accumulation of debris. This can provide more nutrients to body areas in need of it, increasing alertness and energy.
  • Lower Blood Pressure – Often, one of the reasons for high blood pressure is lifestyle and stress and getting a massage for stress is one of the primary reasons people seek its rejuvenating powers. Therapeutic massage helps induce a state of pure relaxation, melting away tension, which can result in an easing of circulatory demands on the heart and lower blood pressure.
  • Improved immune response – Through the stimulating capacity of touch, one of the most overlooked benefits of therapeutic massage is that of an improved immune system. The pressure exerted on certain bodily areas alerts the immune system to problems, sending resources and healing energies to the site of concern.

It’s All About You

Life in the 21st century is hectic and can seem chaotic with demands on your time coming from all directions. A therapeutic massage is a chance for you to hit the ‘timeout’ button and get some much needed ‘me time’.
