3 Benefits of Remedial Massage Therapy
There are so many different benefits to receiving Remedial Massage. For this reason, in today’s blog we will be covering only 3 of the most important and amazing benefits. These can literally change the quality of your life and health.
The first major benefit is Stress Relief
Stress is a big factor in our daily lives. And who doesn’t want less of this in our life? Being so busy in our modern fast-paced world, we often neglect to give ourselves ‘time out’ to relax and unwind. Remedial Massage is perfect for this! Incorporating Remedial Massage into your lifestyle on a regular basis, will vastly improve your emotional well being and reduce those stress levels. It will aid your mental coping abilities, as well as rejuvenating your body physically.
Another important benefit is Flexibility
Remedial Massage therapy enables us to remain flexible, helping improve blood flow within the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. Greatly beneficial for elite athletes, or even the weekend warrior, remedial massage is also important in generally for everyone. This is mainly to maintain the correct length of muscles and to aid in recovery and posture correction. Over time, muscles become shortened and tight due to stress, chronic tension, fatigue, or postural imbalance. The better your flexibility, the better joints will function over time, reducing the risk of joint dysfunction, and then over time arthritis.
Remedial Massage Compliments other Treatments
Remedial Massage compliments other treatments such as Chiropractic and Dry needling. Often the two combined can have an improved outcome to therapy. If there is muscle imbalance or weakness, posture is affected, which in turn starts to cause spinal misalignment and nerve pressure. Massage can help re balance the supporting muscles of the spine, allowing the optimal alignment and posture to be achieved and maintained for longer.
For example, massage therapy assists with Chiropractic Adjustments by warming up your muscles, and making them more supple and relaxed. This helps to prepare the muscles and joints for a chiropractic adjustment or correction. As a result your adjustment will be better, your recovery time will be shorter, and your symptoms, often pain and stiffness, will be alleviated faster. This will enable corrective changes in spinal alignment to last for longer.
