Have you been considering adding therapeutic massage therapy to your active, busy lifestyle? If so, great! There are many different styles of therapeutic massage therapy, and you can rest assured that massage can be used for lots more reasons than to simply indulge in some alone time and relax. Here are some common reasons clients may seek-out therapeutic massage therapy with Active Health:
Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure can be a real problem that can lead to headaches, difficulty sleeping, and more. Regular therapeutic massage will not only relax you, but may help to lower your stress levels, and, therefore, your overall blood pressure.
Improves Range of Motion and Joint Flexibility
As you age, or after a traumatic accident, you may notice that your joint seem stiffer, harder to move, or perhaps even painful. Massage therapy can keep your joints more flexible, helping you to avoid injury and to be able to move better.
Enhances Rehabilitation after Operations or Injury
By increasing circulation in specific muscles and joints, as well as easing pain, massage therapy is a great addition to any post-operation rehabilitation program. Not only that, but massage therapy may help to relieve the stress of rehabilitation, and accelerate the recovery process.
Perhaps you are one of the millions or people who have problems with serious, recurring headaches. By improving circulation and easing pain, a massage regimen may bring relief to those who suffer the most.
Relieves over Stress
Stress can be a killer, literally. One way to relieve stress, along with a healthy diet and exercise plan, is to seek-out therapeutic massage therapy. Just having one, single session can help you feel more relaxed and less stressed, and may help to lower insulin and cortisol levels, along with your pulse.
Massage can help realign your body by helping to reinforce natural and healthy joint and muscle movements. You’ll not only feel more relaxed after a session, but you will also feel more like your younger self again as you continue to see your therapist and gradually improve your posture.
Makes You Relaxed
Although this is not the only benefit of massage, it is still one of the most important. Just a single therapy session may make you feel more “centered,” as if your over-all well-being is better, may help to improve constant pain, and will put you more at east that you have been in months.
