5 Hidden Health Benefits On Body Massage

In Singapore, like in many parts of the world, people have to deal with one type of postural stress or another, according to experts. And in most cases, this stress appears to manifest itself in the neck and shoulders. If you are a desk worker, you have all the reasons to worry. This is because more advanced types of postural stress tends to appear as pain or even weakness in the gluteals and the low back. This is brought about by sitting for a long period of time. Fortunately, massage is able to counter the imbalance brought about by sitting. This means that you can continue keeping your desk job. You just have to ensure that you schedule regular massage sessions. In this article, we reveal some hidden health benefits of body massage.

5 Hidden Health Benefits On Body Massage


1. Body massage eases muscle pain

If you have sore muscles, do not worry because a regular massage session can help you. According to experts, massage not only increases but also improves circulation, just in the same way as rubbing your elbow helps to relieve pain after you have knocked it on the table. According to a 2011 research that was published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, massage therapy has the same effectiveness as the techniques that are used to treat chronic back pain.

2. Soothes depression and anxiety

According to experts, human touch, when done on a professional, friendly and safe context, can be greatly therapeutic and relaxing. A 2005 study (which can be seen here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15809216), reports that women who were diagnosed with the breast cancer disease and who got massage therapy thrice a week said they were less angry and also less depressed. The study was published in International Journal of Neuroscience. In yet another study that was published in Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, established that patients who felt depressed and anxious became happier and more relaxed after getting a massage. Their stress levels had also gone down considerably.

3. It improves sleep

Other than the fact that massage encourages a restful sleep, it can also help you if you cannot have a comfortable rest. Experts say that massage encourages sleep and relaxation in individuals who are undergoing radiation therapy or chemotherapy. And if you have recently become a parent, know that massage can help your kid sleep more, be less stressed and cry less. Majority of registered massage therapists in Singapore also do infant massage. If, as a parent, you want to do the massage yourself, it is very natural. There is no specific technique. Just do anything that parents normally do to soothe their babies to sleep.

4. It boosts immunity

Another hidden benefit of massage is that it can boost your immunity. According to a 2010 research that was published in Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, a massage can boost the white blood cell count of a patient. White blood cells play a big role in protecting the body from being ravaged by diseases. Also, for individuals who suffer from HIV, massage will improve their immune function significantly.

5. It provides relief for headache

Next time you are hit with a headache do not go to hospital because a massage is just as effective, if not better than medications for headaches. This is because massage decreases frequency as well as intensity of tension headaches. According to research conducted by University of Granada, Spain researchers, a single massage therapy session has instant effect on patients who suffer from chronic tension headaches. The full study can be found at this link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19748404. Unlike medications for headaches, massage does not have any side effects because it is a natural way to relief headaches. Therefore, next time when you have tension headache, head off to your nearest massage therapist.

Conclusion

Many people know massage as only a means to relax the body. But the truth is that body massage has so many health benefits to your body. Among these hidden benefits is that it relives muscle pain, boosts, immunity, cures headaches, reduces anxiety and depression especially in patients that have been diagnosed with breast cancer and also improves sleep not only in adults but also in restless kids who cannot afford a comfortable rest.
