Why Massage Therapy?

5 Reasons why you should consider massage therapy

In some countries they consider massage a health prevention therapy. Massage can improve your spine condition, relieve stress, promote circulation and even help you with weight loss. It also helps you relax and it feels great! Massage therapy Douglasglen, Calgary SE

It is important to choose the right kind of treatment. Are you  an active person who needs good sports massage or do you prefer to relax during complete body oil massage treatment?

Five reasons to have a massage (some, you might have not thought of):

  1. It boosts your immune system

 Scientists have measured levels of cortisol before and after the massage. After massage there was significant decrease of cortisol which is known for destroying your immune cells. With regular visits to your massage therapist you may conquer those colds and the flue for good.

  1. It helps you sleep better

Massage is known for lowering stress hormones levels. It also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which brings relaxation and prevents insomnia. It’s good to use slow and gentle moves in order to soothe your nervous system.

  1. It gives you time for yourself

Do you feel under constant pressure? Our schedules tend to be so busy these days, and you don’t seem to get a break even at home, especially if you have children. Massage will give you the precious quiet time to relax and you’ll go home re-energized and peaceful from inside out.deep tissue massage therapy Calgary SE

  1. It helps your body detox

We accumulate toxins from the food we eat, medication we take and of course, in many ways from our environment.  The pressure applied on your body during massage stimulates the circulatory system. The toxins are being pushed to the skin surface and released from the body. It’s recommended to increase your water intake after the massage to help flush our the toxins.

  1. It improves digestion

Abdominal massage can help with constipation and bloating, it increases bile secretion and activates peristalsis. And the best thing is that you can do it all by yourself. It can be as simple as laying down and slowly circling outward from the navel, repeating up to 50 times.

If you can, try to have a regular massage schedule. Depending on severity of your issues you can start with a session once a week and when you feel better you can slow down to once a month or less. Keep in mind though that massage therapy is not replacement for medical care. If you have any concerns, consult your family doctor.
