What are the benefits of deep tissues massage? (Continued)
This benefits everyone, not just athletes. The realignment of muscle fibres and flexibility gained from deep tissue massage therapy translates to less muscle related injuries, and lowers the risk of re-injury.
Better sleep quality
Many who have massage on a regular basis experience better quality sleep. This is because deep tissues massage helps to decrease pain, lower the heart rate and induce relaxation, which makes quality sleep much more attainable.
Stress relief & relaxation
These two are without a doubt a major benefit. High levels of stress cause the body to produce excess cortisol (the stress hormone), which can lead to various health problems. Deep tissue massage has been proven to lower levels of cortisol and increase levels of serotonin and oxytocin (happy hormones), these hormones are responsible for overall happiness. Massage helps to correct the balance of these hormones, which contributes to decreased stress and overall feelings of well-being.
Lowers blood pressure
In today’s day high blood pressure is increasing, it’s seen in both young adults and the elderly. This due to work stress, mental trauma, tension, and anxiety. Studies have shown deep tissue massage helps ease stress and tension, which can have a beneficial effect on blood pressure.
A lesser known benefit is how beneficial it can be for your posture! Considering poor posture is one of the leading causes of back pain, massage is a brilliant, non-invasive way to help improve this important aspect of your life. While lifestyle changes are certainly required for improved posture, it can help reset the body to its natural alignment and relax the muscles.
