Even though it is right to think that, Massage Therapy isn't limited to only a few benefits. Some people don’t know that massage can actually help with numerous things and more importantly, mental health problems. After all, your entire being is ruled by your mind. So, why does massage help treat mental health disorders and reduce stress considerably? First, it’s important to remember that the human body is a complex network of nerves, muscles and cells that are all connected and in sync with one another. So it’s no surprise that the mind can greatly benefit by treating the physical body with massage. A study was published in the International Journal of Neuroscience and they found that serotonin increased an average of 28% and dopamine levels increased by 31% subsequent to Massage Therapy. There have been several studies when it comes to psychological benefits and they have shown that massage decreases the symptoms of depression and anxiety significantly.
Stress can cause a multitude of symptoms that can gravely effect ones physical and mental health. Overexposure to the primary stress hormone called cortisol and other stress hormones can be detrimental to your health and can disrupt almost all your body’s processes. It can be the reason behind numerous health problems, such as digestive problems, headaches, heart disease, sleep problems, improves quality of life in hospice care, decreases stress in cancer patients, tempers the effects of dementia, helps with depression, anxiety, memory and concentration impairment, and helps with weight gain. Everyones reaction to stress varies from person to person. However, Massage Therapy is a natural way to fix that and so many other health conditions. That is one of many reasons why it has such a huge success rate. It can help manage stress, anxiety, depression, and many other mental health conditions.

New clients will start to see that their health improves with each session. Soon enough their major health concerns will diminish until there are no concerns left and they will be able to enjoy a healthy life once again.
Many people know that Massage Therapy can treat and heal numerous physical health issues. Yet, many people are not aware of all the benefits. We feel that it’s important for people to know what those benefits are and why Massage Therapy has a high success rate. One of the more evident benefits is that massage relieves muscle tension, stiffness and pain. However, some people may not know why this is. It’s because massage reduces these symptoms by stimulating the release of endorphins. A few more recognizable benefits include; helping to relieve tension headaches, improve flexibility and range of motion, and improves healing time of strained muscles and sprained ligaments. As well as reducing pain, swelling and formation of scar tissue. Even those benefits are a few reasons why so many athletes get Massages, too.
Listing every benefit is important to us and we want our clients (future or current) to know that massage is so much more than just easing pain and relieving stress. It also helps to lower blood pressure, strengthen the immune system and enhances health and nourishment of the skin. Also, it improves circulation of blood and movement of lymph fluids, which supply nutrients to individual cells; while improving the cells ability to rid the body of waste materials from these cells. Massage also helps to ease the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, sports injuries, joint pain, myofascial pain syndrome, digestive disorders, rheumatoid arthritis pain and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It improves cardiovascular health, balance in older adults, exercise performance and reduces chemotherapy-related nausea. So, it’s no wonder why massage is such an important part of peoples lives and is highly recommended by many. It aids in healing and treating a great deal of conditions and problems. From simple to complex.
Massage Therapy is an incredible practice that has been used to heal naturally for thousands of years. The first written records of Massage Therapy were found in China and Egypt and the text was written in 2700 BCE. Even people from thousands of years ago believed in its medical benefits. After all, it does help to heal the body inside and out. Majority of people will remember that massage can help heal on a mental level as well as physical. Even so, what's remarkable about massage is it can help people on a spiritual level, as well. The mind, body, and spirit are all connected after all. Actually, many believe that Massage Therapy can realign and rebalance the energy flow through the chakras. Moving energy with massage is an eminent way to focus that energy to a section of the body or to a certain Chakra that is unstable. Many feel that Chakras are forces of energy that flow through the subtle body. The subtle body is recognized as the soul or spirit that lies over the physical body. There are seven major organs and systems in the physical and subtle body that Chakras correlate with. When a Chakras energy flow weakens in the corresponding organ, system function weakens as well. Some trust that Chakras resemble the vibrations of the bodies own molecules. Chakras contain two electrical currents, alternating and constant and beyond the physical body exists the unbroken Chakra. It is the interchange of energy between one’s self, the environment around, and others. Realignment of the Chakras is not the only benefit, though. The relaxing aspects from massage can help people achieve meditation during or following a session. Some may have difficulties concentrating so they can meditate. Fortunately, massage can help by paying attention to the massage itself, focusing closely and letting your mind to clear of anything else. Those are just a few examples of how Massage Therapy can help us on a spiritual level.
In conclusion, Massage Therapy is a very beneficial practice that has been around for thousands of years if not longer. It is such a powerful way to heal naturally. It has also helped countless people find peace, happiness, and symptom relief from medical conditions that effect the Mind, Body and Spirit.
