Why Schedule a Massage even when you’re Not Stressed?

Do you think massages are only to relieve your current stress? Think again! Here are 3 ways regular remedial massage helps improve your health.

Maintenance

Your body is an organic machine. When machines don’t regularly have maintenance work done, their parts wear and eventually they don’t work as well as they used to. The body is no different. If you have been to see a massage therapist for a sore shoulder from playing your favourite sport or a stiff neck from working at the computer all day, while you’re going to feel relief after the massage, these issues will most likely keep making an appearance as long as you are continuing to do the activity that provokes them. Having regular massages can help prevent these issues getting to the point of pain again and maintain a healthy range of motion in that area.

Strengthens Your Immune System

Remedial massage is proven to stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory systems, strengthening and boosting your body’s natural immune responses. Regular therapeutic massages aren’t just lowering your stress; they also help your body to fight off any illnesses you might be exposed to, fending them off before you even start to feel sick. This can be especially beneficial coming into spring for people who suffer from hay fever, as a boosted immune system can lower your symptoms.

Lowers Blood Pressure

Even if you’re not feeling stressed “right now”, your body is affected by the stress you experience in your life. Stress can lead to higher blood pressure, which can lead to health complications. A natural therapy such as remedial massage actually stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which in turn regulates your heart rate and lowers your blood pressure.
