There's no denying the power of massage. Regardless of the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen. Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. Perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into:
•Decreased anxiety.•Enhanced sleep quality.•Greater energy.•Improved concentration.•Increased circulation.•Reduced fatigue.
Research shows that with massage:
•Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain.•Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow.•Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety.•High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.•Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping.•Preterm infants have improved weight gain.Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat postsurgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.
Increase the benefits with frequent visits. Getting a massage can do you a world of good. And getting massages frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork. Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you'll be and how youthful you'll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. And remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn't mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.
