5 Lesser Known Benefits of Massage
How often do you receive massage therapy? How long has it been since you last received a professional massage? Turns out, if you aren’t receiving frequent and consistent massage, you could be missing out on a myriad of lesser known health benefits. Here are just a couple of them…
1. Eternal Youth
OK, so maybe massage won’t literally give you eternal life, but studies have shown that it CAN in fact make you look younger!! Regular facial massage has been shown to rejuvenate the skin and give you a healthy glow without the need for harsher treatments that can leave the skin feeling compromised or injured.
2. Immune Boosting Super Strength
You know those people who never seem to get sick no matter what garbage is going around? You could be one of those people, and massage can help! Studies have shown that people who receive regular massage are actually helping to boost their immunity, which in turn helps them fight the nastiness that always seems to be “going around”.
3. Brain Power
Who wouldn’t want to be a super genius? Whether you choose to use your powers for Good or Evil is totally up to you, either way massage can help to get you there. Research indicates that regular massage can help sharpen brain function by increasing circulation and blow flow to all of that beautiful grey matter.
4. Making “That Time” a Little More Bearable
If you have ever experienced the “joys” of womanhood, you can appreciate how any type of relief during this time of the month is a welcomed one. Believe it or not, regular and frequent massage can be a great tool for helping to minimize and alleviate the symptoms and side effects that come along with an unruly cycle.
That’s right, you heard it, regular and consistent massage can actually help to make you a overall happier human. Studies have also shown that individuals suffering from depression have also seen symptom relief from receiving frequent massage.
