Massage & health: The secret that keeps us healthy

Our health is the most important asset we can have. So what can we do to keep our health in perfect condition?

Apart from a balanced diet and exercise, massage is a key ingredient in good health.

Massage treatments have been practiced for thousands of years and now you can choose from about 80 different massage techniques – each with different movements, pressures and results.

It is the tool that will help you fight disease and stress and at the same time is keeping your immune system and your energy high.

According to a study by the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, people who received massage therapy for 45 minutes showed an increase in the number of lymphocytes, which play an important role in the body’s defense.

When we reduce stress and unpleasant emotions, we improve the image of our health.

Unfortunately, more and more people today are suffering from anxiety. Something that is not done willingly, but has serious consequences for our health (heart disease and other diseases).

When cortisol (a hormone responsible for stress and anxiety) is high, our immune system is weakened.

Massage therapy lowers cortisol levels and raises levels of serotonin (a health-related hormone) and helps us feel relaxed and at ease.

It also helps with any digestive disorders, insomnia due to stressful behaviours, sports injuries, fibromyalgia, joint pain, poor posture and many more unpleasant situations.

It is a complementary alternative treatment that when done by well-trained therapists can only benefit your health.

For these reasons, do not wait for a special occasion to give yourself a massage session. Incorporate massage treatments into your monthly routine to prevent and maintain good health. Think of it as natural, alternative medicine.
