If you enjoy getting a professional massage, but consider it an unnecessary indulgence, change your thinking! A therapeutic massage is directly beneficial to your health and wellness. In addition, it may speed the body's recovery from injury or illness and it helps the circulatory, muscular, skeletal, nervous and lymphatic systems function more efficiently. Therapeutic massages are also effective in preventing and easing pain and stress.
Because a massage simply feels good, it can be relaxing and soothing to the mind. Plus, it actually lowers the heart rate and the blood pressure and relaxes tense muscles. Therapeutic massage is sometimes recommended as part of certain medical treatments for the physical reasons listed previously, but also for the feeling of wellness it invokes in patients.
So, next time you feel guilty taking time out for a massage, remember, your health and wellness is at stake! And go for it!
