An estimated 85 percent of all American adults will experience some form of back pain during their lifetime.
Do you fall into that 85% range of adults who experience back pain day in and day out?! Unfortunately, in our day in age with all the dumpin’ and slumpin’ we do, it’s hard to keep that back pain at bay. Unless there was some natural healing remedy that could take care that for you…
And there is!
Some people may right away consider massage therapy a luxury, but that’s far from the truth. Massage therapy holds such powerful benefits that it should be taken into consideration as a monthly routine, or even more frequently depending on how severe your aches and pains are.
Let’s take a look at some benefits of a regular massage schedule:
1. Increased blood flow. Increased blood flow is a known proponent of muscle recovery and studies confirm that massage therapy helps improve general blood flow and reduces soreness.
2. Decreased tension. While muscle tension is needed by the body to maintain body posture and general movements, too much tension causes pain and muscle restriction, especially in the lower back and neck. Massage therapy is clinically proven to decrease muscle tension.
3. Increased endorphins. Endorphins are the feel good chemicals in the brain. Massage tactics including acupressure and trigger point therapy generate these endorphins, which are known to reduce pain and produce a sense of euphoria.
Research shows a mere 15 minutes of massage can spark endorphins, creating up to 48 hours of their feel-good effects.
Sounds amazing right?! The best part about regularly scheduled massages is that when you begin to build that relationship with your massage therapist, you can not only grow together but over time your massage therapist will know exactly what you need without you even having to mention it!
