Receiving Massage Has So Many Benefits

Everyone that has experienced a full body massage knows that it fills you with a sense of peace and tranquility which stays with you long after the massage is over.

There is also much more to massage than just it's wonderful ability to release tension and stress. The health benefits of massage are plentiful and by getting regular massages your health can improve tremendously.

The need for touch is one of the basic needs for all life, just as important as eating and drinking. Some studies in Russia have revealed that babies who aren't touched enough are not nearly as healthy as other babies.

By using the power of touch in the form of a massage, wonders can be created, both for your body and your mind. A great benefit from receiving massage is that it increases the circulation and makes the blood flow with more ease throughout the body.

When the blood flow increases it helps the cells to work more efficiently and it can be beneficial to those suffering from high or low blood pressure.

Massage also aids the lymphatic system, which is a large part of your body's immune system. The lymphatic system moves mucous throughout your body and doesn't have a pump.

A massage can help your muscles relax and become loose, let go of tension and can also improve your posture. For those experiencing conditions such as muscle pain, back pain, headaches, stomach pain and cramps, massage therapy can provide a lot of relief.

For those experiencing insomnia, massage can be of great benefit. By relieving accumulated tension and stress, it is much easier to get the rest we need at night so that we are able to get the most out of our awake time.

Because of the stress and tension that is so common in home and work environments of today, a lot of people have gained an imbalance in their bodies.

By using the hands and fingers to manipulate the meridians and pressure points in the body it is possible to reawaken our natural state of health and wellbeing.

Since massage is such an ancient healing method, there has been thousands of years to develop and practice the different techniques that exists today.

We are in a very lucky age right now where we can experience many different types of massage styles and learn powerful techniques from all over the world.

By combining the wisdom that comes out of old traditions with the intuitive touch and the flow in the moment, I feel that there are no limits to what you can achieve through massage.
