When most of us think of health, we think of eating right and exercising. However, there are also many health benefits to massages. They have often only been thought of a luxury that feels good.
However, massages can be so much more than that. In this video, you will learn about some of the health benefits of massages.
The first benefit of a good massage is that it is a great way to relax. After a long day at work, it is important that we find a way for our bodies to relax. Otherwise, we will feel more burnt out and are more susceptible to mental health issues. Massages are a great way to relax because they release endorphins. These endorphins make you feel good while also reducing stress and pain. In fact, people with chronic pain will likely especially benefit from regular massages.
Massages also reduce muscle tightness and promote blood flow. This is important because it promotes healing and recovery. Therefore, athletes or anyone is on their feet all day should really consider using massages as a way to relax after a long workout or shift. However, massages will not flush out lactic acid. That is only a myth. Even so, there are many reasons to consider a massage today.
