Regular massage: Five basic health benefits

Our lives are constantly moving at a fast pace. When was the last time we found the time to do something for ourselves?

Giving yourself a massage session during the week will give you energy and health. And this should be a priority.

If you’re not convinced yet, here are five health benefits that regular massage offers:


  1. Helps relieve the pain

It is scientifically proven that massage on the parts of our body that hurt, reduces pain and discomfort. This is because pain signals sent to the brain from that point are blocked and other stimuli are transmitted by touch, which reduces the intensity of the pain.


  1. Offers energy and wellness

During the massage, you feel so relaxed that your body and mind feel as if they are in a state of sleep. The touch, the increased blood flow to the muscles, the oxygenation of the tissues and cells of the body, restore the heart rate to normal levels and give energy for the whole day.


  1. Improves blood circulation and tones the skin.

Who would not want glowing, healthy skin? The massage improves blood circulation and helps transport nutrients to all cells, keeping the skin glowing. Also, with the massage, the dead cells are removed, leaving in their place a natural glow to take their place.


  1. Helps with depression and anxiety.

There is a hormone in our body that is responsible for stress, named ‘cortisol’. Massage has been shown to lower cortisol levels and activate other hormones, such as ‘serotonin’ and ‘dopamine’, hormones that are linked to good mental health.


  1. Relaxes muscles and lowers blood pressure.

The wrong posture and the demanding rhythms of everyday life are usually the ones who are responsible for the physical pain. When blood circulation is reduced, the supply of oxygen to the muscles is blocked and this can cause physical pain, a feeling of pressure or weight in the body. The massage gives the muscles elasticity, soothes the tense tissues and aims at their quick recovery.


Let us not forget that the history of massage dates back to the ancient civilizations, from east to west, which they were using this method to heal.

In ancient Greece, Hippocrates taught his students that with the method of friction they can heal wounds and diseases.

So, the benefits of massage in our lives are coming from ancient wisdom.
